    1. I don’t see how such a deal would make any sense to Phoenix. Unless I guess Dieng is involved, but that’d be dumb for Minny. So I have no idea how it would work.

    2. It seems like just a lot of smoke blowing. Minnesota supposedly offered some combo of Kevin Martin, JJ Barea, and Chase Budinger, which they surely don’t expect Phoenix to accept. Perhaps it’s just a way to gain some leverage in the Rubio negotiations.

    3. Exactly. Why in the world would Phoenix give up one of their top players who they are guaranteed to have under contract next season for guys that the T-Wolves are actively trying to dumo?

    4. Perhaps it’s just a way to gain some leverage in the Rubio negotiations.

      Well, the offer is already made, so i don’t see how they get leverage if they end up either with or without Bledsoe.

      I was favorable to offering Bledose the max IF he completed a healthy season on the QO while keeping his numbers. Right now i find it a risky proposition.

    5. ^^

      Minnesota’s over the cap. Didn’t offer anything besides some overpaid vets in return for a S&T. It would be like the Knicks offering Bargnani and Calderon for Bledsoe S&T at Max. Making an offer you know the other team will reject doesn’t really mean much.

    6. “It would be like the Knicks offering Bargnani and Calderon for Bledsoe S&T at Max.”

      True, but maybe the Suns’ front office thinks the the average Knickerblogger commentator and would make that deal “on scheme, fit and upside alone.” Wishful thinking, guys!

    7. We should totally offer Calderon and Big Bargs for Bledsoe. They need a stretch big after Frye left town. You think Dragic is getting to the rim without someone to take the big man out of the paint?

      OK, then i dont get why this has been reported at all. I thought they made a max offer to bledsoe, and then Phoenix could match or negotiate a S&T.

      As it stands, it is only Minnesota messing with Bledsoe and his agents so that they don’t accept a lesser offer from Phoenix; but nothing’s happening (Unless they offer Rubio for Bledsoe, but that’s a different story)

    9. I don’t think that the Suns would even take back Rubio for Bledsoe. Bledsoe has, like, no leverage here. It is so weird. If you so desperately want a max offer, wait until next season. You are not getting it this year.
