Suns acquire former first-round pick Elfrid Payton from Magic for 2nd round pick

What happened to the person who was so convinced Smart wasn't better than Payton...?  :laugh: ::) ::)

I wouldn't be worrying about him.
If Smart could fetch better return than Elfrid Payton did today, he'd be packing his bags right now...
I'm no Smart fan but I definitely wouldn't want us to trade Smart for a high 2nd
And so we didn't. But if there was a first on the table, Smart would have been out of town before you can say "Elfrid Payton".

How do you figure that?

Why would the Celtics be in the market (and give up SIGNIFICANT value in Smart) for a better 1st round pick, when they wouldn't even include their own crappy 1st rounder in a trade for Evans?

It doesn't even seem like Smart's going to command much as a FA, so I can't see why we needed to dump him.  Much rather sign him to a low-risk contract and see if he blows up like Bradley, while dangling the soon to be FA Rozier in trades as a team's new starting PG.
I figure that because it was widely reported that Smart was available for a first-rounder.

To be honest, I have a feeling that Woj doesn't like us for some reason..

Ah, I see. I hope he didn't get banned. He said some pretty rude or hurtful things to me, and some other members on the forum. But still, I wouldn't want someone to get kicked out because they had a bad day.

If Isaiah got bought out, and he came to the Celtics, I think I might legit cry myself to sleep and die happy. (Which would probably never happen, since we can only sign vet min.)

I think the reason Smart was available for a 1st was so if we got it we'd flip our own 1st for Tyreke, effectively trading Smart for Tyreke and a move up in the draft.  I can see that logic appealing to Danny a lot.

I wonder if we go after him with JJ hitting the buyout market, too.

I much, much prefer Marco. He's a better shooter, younger, and a better fit for Brad's system, imo.

You say younger as if it makes him more athletic or something. These 2 are a wash and that's not a testament to Marco considering JJ been toast for at least a season. I'll pass on both.
