Woj is Woj, but as Dave, Geoff, and myself have said on twitter, I'm not sure the math checks out on that. We will have an update on the numbers as it comes in.

Suns need to get off Markieff Morris/PJ Tucker in sign-and-trades or dumps to get closer to space needed for Chandler and Aldridge.

The Suns are a better team with Tyson Chandler, with or without LaMarcus Aldridge
