08:10 AM ET 01.26 | Times are a' changin' in Phoenix, where the good times have receded into the desert. Empty seats weep silently. And after all these wonderful years of service, Steve Nash suddenly has become a liability. The Suns must trade him soon, before he can turn a flawed, talent-deprived team into something mediocre. No one wanted it to end this way. But after three successive home losses to Cleveland, New Jersey and Toronto, it's time to face the sobering truth. Marquee free agents won't be coming to Phoenix any time soon. The only way to spawn another contending team is through luck of the draft. And the only foreseeable reward for this awful season in progress is a place inside the NBA lottery.

QUOTE(#12):

Dooling plays D and can shoot.Plus he is in his early 30s Nash is on the downside.Which is why he needs to go to a team already built to win now.The C's have plenty cap space next year but they don't need him.This is what the C's needs to do:Sign Chris Kaman,resign Green,Dooling,J.O,Daniels and Pietrus and Wilcox.starting 5: Rondo,Dooling,Pierce,Bass,Kaman=brilliant starting 5bench:Bradley,Pietrus,Green,Wilcox,J.O and other rookies.

I read that on the other thread and i like that, but i believe that the Celtics will resign KG and Ray-Ray for less money...

Diminished? He is averaging 15 point and leads the league in assist on that garbage team....I mean offensively he is a solid as ever and I don't think we are ever going to confuse his defense slipping..

How much do you think it will take to sign Kaman ?

He should be looking for a 4-year deal. I'm guessing it will be something like $13M / year. (he is making $12M this year)

That is a lot of money.
