This is the question many of us are asked by friends and family as we await the next round of free agency.
We wonder how the Suns will balance the demands of salary cap and long-term financial flexibility.
In a perfect world, we would be asking this question with a smile.
The Suns are going to be spending the next two summers shopping and trading.
The first, to bring back their best players, including the franchise player Goran Dragic.
The second, to shore up a weak free agent class and build a roster capable of competing for titles.
For some, this is a time to think about whether the Suns should try to take the leap and trade for the NBA’s top overall pick.
For others, it is an opportunity to make the best of a terrible situation.
Let’s take a look at some of the most popular scenarios.
The draft will be the Suns first chance to go after a franchise player 2.
The front office takes the leap to trade for a franchise star 3.
The team takes a shot at a top prospect in the draft and finds it difficult to make a deal for him 4.
The general manager falls down on the deal because he is afraid the Suns would be trading away their first round pick and/or their first-round pick next year 5.
The GM makes the trade for an unproven big man, only to find the team falls behind in the standings 6.
The trade is a bad one because it puts a long-shot franchise player at risk 7.
The move puts the Suns in the position of not having a franchise cornerstone to build around 8.
The decision is made to trade away a core piece for a player who has been out of favor with the team.
It is not uncommon for teams to make these kinds of moves, but the Suns are the first team to take them to the max in one season.
The idea is that the Suns’ salary cap situation will force them to use their first and second picks on players that will be under contract for the rest of the season, which is a recipe for disaster.
The NBA has been a league that has embraced player development and a “one-year wonder” style of player acquisition.
The league has been able to develop talent and build rosters through the draft, but it is a trend that has been lacking in recent years.
This season, the Suns were a mediocre 16-29.
The best player on the team is a guy who is on a one-year, $7.5 million contract, which means that he is not guaranteed a spot on a roster for the first three years of his contract.
The worst player on that team, the big man DeAndre Jordan, is on an eight-year contract, and he is still in the league.
The two players with the best contracts are Dragic and Jordan.
The most important aspect of a franchise in the NBA is that it has a core of players that are willing to give it everything.
They want to play, and if they do not want to, they can make a move.
The problem for the Suns is that their best player is gone, and they have to find someone who can step up to the plate.
There are a few reasons why this could happen.
1) Dragic has a bad history with Phoenix The Suns drafted Dragic out of a small school in Nigeria in 2007.
That was the same year he played his last NBA game.
The following season, Dragic signed a four-year deal with the Phoenix Suns, but he never lived up to expectations.
His offensive game suffered as he struggled to find a role on the Suns.
He averaged just 12.3 points and 5.8 rebounds per game, and his defense was often a liability.
When the Suns made the move to trade Dragic, they knew they had to take a chance on a player that would improve their team.
In 2012, the Phoenix signed Dragic to a three-year max contract.
While it was an upgrade, the team could not get the production out of him and he was a liability on defense.
In 2014, the organization re-signed Dragic after he had a breakout season in Phoenix, and the Suns signed him to a four year deal.
However, the two seasons that Dragic spent with Phoenix were both in the middle of the worst stretch of his career.
He was playing a much lower level of basketball than he had in years past, and while his offense was still pretty good, his defense did not help him in the way that he had the previous two seasons.
The deal that was signed to the Suns was not a great deal for the organization.
The franchise could not make the right move.
They did not get a player with the ability to play multiple positions on the court, and as a result, they had an expensive veteran to help the team through the transition to a younger roster.
2) The Suns could not trade Dragan Dragic Because of his injury history, Dr
