What about Lauri/Felicio for a S&T Saric + #10?

Sounds good but depends on what the saric contract would be. 3/39 would be ok.

Wow, that seems to be a lot for Saric, who, IMO is a guy whose stock is down after a strong start in Philly. I'm thinking a deal like Sato's of 3/30 would be as high as I go for a likely back-up, but Ideally 3/$20.

Pretty sure a S&T and a draft pick trade is unworkable. We'd have to agree to terms with Saric before the draft, which I don't think we can do.

Cam Johnson or Mikal Bridges instead? Bridges is like a young, healthy Otto Porter, so that kind of makes sense, but that might top the balance into "not worth it" for the Suns.

Sure, but doubt Suns would give up either guy for Lauri, much less plus a pick.

Well, we started out with you suggesting the pick plus a player. :)

If I were them, I wouldn't trade Bridges, but I've been high on him. Cam Johnson though, if we look at the numbers, I don't think he's even as good a player as Saric is. Obviously Saric is an impending FA so that lowers his value since, if Phoenix is going to keep him, it will be on a higher $ amount. I get that. But what I'm saying is, if they really want to move up in the world, and want to add Lauri, they'd be willing to keep Saric and add Lauri.

We should be shopping Sato. Dude is hog ****. I would take anything for him. A second round pick would do. But nobody probably wants him.

I'm not willing to flush Sato for essentially nothing. I'd like to see him on the floor with 4 decent players in a system with a decent coach. IMO, he's a decent distributing PG who plays ok defense. He has the size to play SG and SF, which has value next season, given our injuries in the past. He becomes an expiring contract on a usable player after next season, and could be a useful trade asset.

My biggest concern about the current team construction with starters of Coby, Zach, Otto, and Lauri starting is that we leave our bench without a scorer. Of course we'd need guys to stay healthy, but we'll need a coach who is smart enough not to do hockey line substitutions. My point is that Sato is a guy who you could plug in for Coby, Zach or Otto and not get hurt too much.

Sato is a keeper for me, due to his versatility. He does not hurt the team, and I like his D

He is not a good starting PD, but he is a good 7th man who can fill in and start without a big drop off

Yeah it's blame being misplaced. Sato isn't a game changer but he's not a flawed game breaker. Put him next to good players and he'll be a positive. It's like complaining the brakes on your sedan aren't top of the line when the engine is not functional

Nope Sato is not good enough that you should Taylor your team for him. Dude was not ok on defense he was terrible. He was so terrible that Lavine had to guard the opposing teams best guard. Gill, Perdue, King, Goff, all called out Satos defense late in the season. Sato was scared as hell to shoot also. He passed up so many open shots so teammates would have to take tough contested shots. He also wasn’t effective in switches. Most point guards can attack bigs off the dribble. Sato had no blow by ability. He also missed bigs in transition way to many times. It’s not placing blame on a player it just calling it the way it is. This board has no problem bashing certain players. But in general this board protects its Euro players even if they play like ****. This board is the only board that gives Sato a pass. Dude sucked ass. Nobody was expecting him to be a star point guard but atleast be a starting quality point guard. Sato was possibly the worst starting point guard in the league last year. He’s a past first point guard that not a great passer. Couldnt even knock down WIDE OPEN 3s last year. Where I hoop at they don’t even know Satos name they just call him Mr. Invisble. Dude is trash.

Sato was one of the bulls worse defenders last year. Literally all the bulls announcers called him out last year. There was so many times Lavine had to guard the best opposing guard once Dunn got injured. The only wing worse on defense last year was probably Valentine. Sato couldn’t guard any wings either. He got overpowered consistently. He’s definitely overpaid.

I'm getting the feeling wonderboy doesn't like Sato. Just a feeling.

I would honestly salary dump Sato at this point. Hopefully he doesn’t get any minutes next year. If he does hopefully he gets minutes as a seldomly used backup PG/SG.

I will say that I really wouldn't mind if we let Dunn go, shift Sato to primarily back-up SG/SF and give the back-up PG minutes to Arci next season (assuming we don't draft a PG).

Arci is basically a waste of time. We should draft a PG.

I am 200% focused on not drafting for need. If it's a PG, I'm cool. That said, as a back-up PG, Arci is as good as most, and cheap. I think the kid is underappreciated. He's not a starter, but he is smart tough, an ok playmaker and distributor, and an improved shooter.

I would be fine picking up Isiah Thomas and releasing Sato. I wonder if teams would be willing to give the bulls a back up SF for him. Probably just wishful thinking. I think more teams value Dunn.

I loved IT pre-injuries. Did he show any signs of life this season?
