CP3 still has the basketball IQ to at least be effective at team defense. He is physically on the decline which does affect his ability as an individual defender.
CP3 is also a much better leader than Trae Young.
Ayton can be inconsistent, but the Suns won't get equal value if they trade him. Especially on his current contract.
Plus if Trae is having issues with Nate McMillan, do you really think he wouldn't have issues with Monty Williams?
Memo to ALL fan bases do not take this man adviceYeah Trae's size just hurts him too much on defense for the team to ever be a big winner.
I think a guy they should go after though is Porzinigs.
He would compliment Trae when healthy.
They got wings in Hunter and AJ, a starting caliber big and a good backup for him, a very good 2nd star, a good scorer off the bench. This roster really has it all other than the star player performing up to his standards. The coaching should improve as well, but I don't think its an overstatement to call it a very good roster. Imo they should be right in that 2nd tier of teams with Cavs/Nets/Sixers. Only Boston/Bucks better.This isn’t a very good roster. This should be a better team with a better record but very good is a MASS overstatement
