Answer should be yes he just took my team to the finals
CP3 thinking 3 years 100m
Sarver is thinking 3 years 10m
He's in a tough position, he gotta give Ayton, Bridges and Cam Johnson eventually good money. That team will never be in the finals again with CP3
I mean Sarver is legit in the run of the worst sports franchise owners in the country....We didn't expect them to blow up like that this season. But they did...If Sarver is serious about the suns competing for titles he may need to resign Paul...If he's comfortable with them being a playoff team he can let him go as Paul will most def not be worth what he will receive.
Cp3 is worth the supermax but with a catch. If it’s only a year to year basis. I can’t give him 3 years or even 2. Or at least a team option after the 1st year if that’s possible
Yeah, but he shouldn't just give CP3 and his agent a blank check to name their offer. If CP3 ask for something over 3 years/$100M Sarver might just have to let another team give him that
If Kyle Lowry is asking and looking for 100mil/3yr, then Chris Paul’s bytchass has every right to ask for the same, if not more
That being said, I wouldn’t want to pay him that kind of bread if I’m Phoenix. You’re essentially capped at max Booker, max Ayton, overpaid CP3, and maybe one other guy you’re overpaying to try and give that extra push
All this young depth with Cameron Johnson and Mikal Bridges with Crowder on a MLE and Payne on a 360 deal is out the window once you pay CP3 and give Ayton his extension
He's worth it if you think he can stay relatively healthy and play the way he has over the last two seasons over the next 3 years. He's worth it if you think the Suns will be contenders with him but not without him
But if you think he's not gonna be able to sustain this for the next 3 years and/or you think the Suns aren't getting back to the Finals with or without him, then yeah some hard conversations will have to be had
Also, the optics of voluntarily letting the player that was the catalyst for the Suns best season in almost 30 years leave will not be kind to Sarver
Cp3 got 40 million reasons to not be tripping like that he's gonna eat anyway
People do realize that Ayton and Bridges are due extension within the next 1-2 years right?
One of those 4 players of (CP3, Ayton, Booker, Bridges) are going to have to go.
He what now?
I think Bridges will be odd man out.
Dude has a 45 million option he can pick up
sometimes you gotta make hard choices
I'd try to sign him to a max 1+1 team option deal. Full money, but if he starts looking I wouldn't pick up year 2.
