The Suns can really roll out a 5PG unit
"Because there are no fours."

I would trade our 2015 1st rounder for Ennis. Then next year, use Vasquez more at the back up 2, and give Ennis some back up 1 minutes. (Next year is when we no longer have Lou)
The Baltic Beast is unstoppable!
Suns owner Robert Sarver was interviewed at half time of the Suns' summer league game last night. He said that the Suns intend to retain Bledsoe. More speculation from me: as teams with cap space to give Bledsoe a Hayward type offer sheet are dwindling due to free agency dealings, Bledsoe may opt for a one year deal and become a UFA next summer.
The Ennis ship has sailed. Guessing suns won't match A max deal for Bledsoe.
Suns got themselves a nice deal for Thomas but I question this signing. They can still run their 2 pg set but that's a huge drop off in defence. Huge.
Maybe they'll trade Dragic and keep Bledsoe?
Insurance for Bledsoe. Probably somebody will be moved eventually. Similar to Lou Will in Tortonto. Less logjammed than our SG situation.
I just think PHX is crazy. I think they got lucky as hell last year when they accidentally succeeded when trying to tank. And I think the GM has no real clue how to build the team going forward.
This part excites me though. The Suns basically destroyed all value Kendall Marshall had. He went from 13th overall pick in the 2012 draft, to trade filler that was immediately waived in 2013 (Gortat trade). Which led to him being signed off waivers by the Lakers for $500K per year.
Marshall is not a bad player. He averaged 8 points and 9 assists per game for the Lakers last year. The Suns just didn't have any minutes for him and destroyed his value.
Hopefully the same thing happens with Ennis, and during the season or next offseason the Raps can get him for scraps.
I am a bit surprised at the often mention need to acquire Ennis (and the price to be paid). I am a firm believer that at this time retaining our first rnd picks is an absolute must. Except of course if the acquisition is so relished. Now that we have both of our PGs re-signed for multiple yrs Ennis is not as much of a valuable need at least for this year imo. With the number of pgs the Suns have his value is bound to decrease and there will be better value to wait on him. If not there will be other opportunities I am sure to get the PG of the future either thru trade or even using the 1st next draft.
Edit: noticed that Primer above mentions the same.
