Suns signing Trevor Ariza and 6ers trading for Wilson Chandler are two moves that mirror one another from a roster building standpoint.

Agreed. I look forward to watching them this season. I wonder everything wing players Ariza, Mikal Bridges and Josh Jackson bring to the perimeter from a defensive standpoint. Not to mention what Ayton might bring if those 3 force their opponents to drive the ball into the paint.

If Booker shines, does Phoenix make the playoffs?

The Suns certainly have potential. Their depth chart looks solid based off what ESPN currently project it to be:

Knight / Okobo
Booker / Daniels / Reed / Harrison
Warren / Ariza / Mikal
Jackson / Chriss / Bender / Dudley
Ayton / Chandler / Bender

I'm not sure how they will work the forward spots, I'd say Ariza and Jackson make sense then utilize Warren as a sixth man, or alternatively they could return to the Booker at point guard experiment then play with Warren, Jackson and Ariza in the starting line up. It's a nice problem for them to have when they will potentially be bringing players like Mikal, Warren, Ariza, Chriss, Bender (etc) off the bench.

Play off team? I'm not sure they will make it this season, but I'd say a Timberwolves like jump when they went from 16 wins to 30 wins is realistic, though they could increase that win count if things click for them. That roster is certainly enviable.

Kawhi Leonard would reportedly accept a trade to a team in the East, and it's Philadelphia 76ers. (Chris Haynes, ESPN.com)

If that happened, Boston vs. Philly would get pretty interesting.

Agreed.

Barring injury, it’d be 6ers vs Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals for years and years to come.

Free agent guard Isaiah Thomas has agreed to a one-year deal with the Denver Nuggets, league sources tell ESPN. Thomas will reunite with Michael Malone, who coached him with the Kings.

The Magic seemed like a better fit.

Thomas went from playing with the Celtics to the Cavs to the Lakers to signing a one year league mining deal with the Nuggets.

Scary.
