As expected, the Phoenix Suns declined their option on forward/journalist Paul Shirley, according to the East Valley Tribune. The team wants the 12th spot on the roster to go to a cheaper player. Shirley earned $750,000 last year, second-least on the team. (Had the Suns renewed Shirley's contract at $750,000, he would've collected $13,020,000 less than Shawn Marion in 2006.)

The team's lowest-paid player--center Steven Hunter--is looking elsewhere for a raise. Hunter's stock rose following an outstanding conference semifinal against Dallas, and his agent said Hunter is worth much more than the $1.7 million the Suns offered.

Trade rumor
If my main concern for the 2005 off-season was to re-sign 12th man Paul Shirley, it is obvious that I thought the Phoenix Suns should stand pat, perhaps picking up a prospect at #21 in the draft and bidding a fond farewell to Bo Outlaw.

A rumor has surfaced that the Suns are considering sending Shawn Marion, Quentin Richardson, plus #21, to the Utah Jazz in exchange for Andrei Kirilenko, Matt Harpring, Jarron Collins, plus #6.

The thinking goes that Harpring is cheaper and not a lot different than Richardson (because Phoenix didn't ask Richardson to use his inside talent), the addition of Collins means Amare Stoudemire can move out to his normal spot at power forward, while Kirilenko will provide some of Marion's scoring and rebounding plus a couple of inches. Then there is the mystery value in picking #6 instead of #21.

On paper, it might be an equivalent deal, but on the court, it doesn't make sense for Phoenix. Marion is one of the truly unique players in the league, capable of leading his team in rebounding and blocked shots at 6-foot-7, and also steals and fast break points. What you see with Kirilenko is what you get, plus his recent history of serious injury. Harpring has been a great surprise, but Phoenix must remember that they signed Richardson to a big free agent contract partly on the basis of his ability to lead the league in rebounds at the off-guard position. What if Phoenix thought to move Stoudemire out to the 4, Marion to 3, Richardson to 2 with their current roster? Then the center is Jake Voskuhl -- looking up just one statistic, Voskuhl's Player Efficiency Rating was 8.7 last year to 8.0 for Collins, and that was Voskuhl's worst season since joining the Suns. Finally, it is becoming clear that the #21 pick in this year's draft won't be a whole lot worse than the #6.

It's said that Phoenix could be contemplating this deal to cut some salary so they'll have some money for re-signing restricted free agent Joe Johnson -- sure, JJ continues to blossom, but his best year as a pro coincided with Steve Nash giving him the basketball, and his position is the easiest on the floor to fill. Really, the team doesn't lose so much if Richardson or Johnson were shipped off -- to restructure the top of the roster to ensure keeping a shooting guard would be unreasonable.

My prediction is that some time Monday, a Suns official will say "what a crock of shit," and everyone will remember that these trade rumors surface so that fanboys have something to do during the offseason.

Nash ..... OMG !!!

Phoenix 130, Dallas 126 ~~~(OT) Nash Crashes Mavs’ Party; Suns Advance Box Score | Mavericks Home | Suns Home DALLAS, May 20 (Ticker) -- Steve Nash stuck the dagger in the Dallas Mavericks. Nash again victimized his former team with 39 points, 12 assists, nine rebounds and every big play down the stretch as the Phoenix Suns reached the Western Conference finals for the first time in 12 years with a 130-126 overtime victory. The top-seeded Suns closed out the fourth-seeded Mavericks in six games to move into the conference finals for the first time since 1993, when they were led by NBA MVP Charles Barkley. This time, they were led by Nash, who has removed all doubt about his MVP award. Over the last four games of the series, Nash averaged 37.0 points, 11.5 assists and 7.0 rebounds. Three of those were in the American Airlines Center, where he had spent the previous six seasons and provided repeated reminders of what the Mavericks let go last summer. Although Nash's recent run has included a career-high 48 points and his first career postseason triple-double, this one may have been the best of all. With the Suns seconds away from heading back home for the unknown of a Game 7, Nash quickly dribbled upcourt and drilled a 3-pointer that made it 111-111 with 5.7 seconds left. Dallas' Jerry Stackhouse missed a 3-pointer and Nash and Shawn Marion took charge in overtime, combining for all but one of Phoenix's 19 points. They worked a beautiful pick-and-roll that led to Marion's teardrop shot that gave the Suns a 123-118 lead with 1:46 remaining. Marion scored 11 of his 38 points in overtime and grabbed 16 rebounds as he picked up the slack for foul-plagued All-Star center Amare Stoudemire. The Suns made a pair of charges in the fourth quarter, both with Stoudemire off the floor. While the Suns rallied around their star in Nash, the Mavericks unraveled around All-Star forward Dirk Nowitzki, who was barking at teammates but missed all five of his shots in overtime. Nowitzki and Nash were best friends as teammates. The run-and-gun Suns erased a 16-point third-quarter deficit, squandered a five-point fourth-quarter lead and trailed, 104-99, with less than three minutes to play. But they kept coming behind Nash, who scored eight points in the final minute of regulation. Stoudemire scored 18 points and Jim Jackson added 16 for the Suns, who have less than 40 hours before hosting second-seeded San Antonio in Sunday's conference finals opener. Jason Terry scored 36 points but made a crucial mental error and Nowitzki added 28 and 13 rebounds for Dallas, which was just 3-4 at home in the postseason.

  Steve Nash is amazing !!!
