I voted yes also. At this stage in his career, they'd be better to amnesty his contract and go with what they have. And maybe if they try hard enough they can beg Jeannie Buss's boyfriend (Phil Jackson) back to coaching.

Nuggets did a major house cleaning today, getting rid of JaVale McGee (finally!) to the Sixers, and sending Aaron Affalo to the Blazers. That was good for loosening up somewhere in the neighborhood of $20 million in salary to get their own pending free agents signed (like Kenneth Faried) and maybe trading for a decent player to help out next year, along with metric buttload of draft picks they're getting out of the deal.

I'm not a Suns fan, but looks like they did another trade which they probably got the screw end of the stick again. I see they get two first round draft picks one in 2017 and another in 2021 from Miami, come on that 5 years from now! I guess they want to screw up the team and not bother making the playoffs for the next few years?
One of my local news channels, interviewed the owner of the Phoenix Suns couple weeks ago and of course he mentions he wants to rebuild the team, bring the NBA Championship here and asking the city for a new arena, which U.S. Airways is about 22 years old and one of the smallest venues in the league.
