Poll: Who should the Suns target in free agency?

The Phoenix Suns are longshots to chase after LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony in free agency. So let’s say the Suns whiff on James. Which of the many second-tier stars would you want them to target in free agency? Or, would you want Phoenix to roll with a similar roster to last season to keep costs down?

Who should the Suns target in free agency if LeBron and Melo are off the board?

    Am I the only one who thinks Chris Bosh would be perfect? (After non-FA Kevin Love)

    How about Monroe and Parsons? Bledsoe-Dragic-Parsons-Monroe-Plumlee would be deadly with Frye, Goodwin, P.J. Tucker, Len, Green, Morris bros, Randolph, Smith, Warren, Ennis off the bench. You would have to offer a lot of money to Monroe and Parsons and I dont know if their teams would match it but thats one of the deepest rosters I’ve ever seen

    Keep tight, I like the idea of GM or PG, though, I don’t see anyone worth wild.

    I think Parsons or Hayward would be great. Their teams can match however. Either Monroe or Gasol would help too.

    Hayward will be matched, don’t waste time on him. Parsons is way better and Houston may not match. Houston is trying desperately to get Melo, and would have to clear cap space as it is [talking about trying to dump Lin and his $8+M]. I am not sure I pay a max deal, and based on what Kyle Lowry 4/48, Gortat 5/62 [holy crap, that is a bad deal], and Avery Bradley 4/32 just got, Parsons may well get a max deal but shouldn’t be less than $12M per.

    Monroe has “deproved” [i know that isn't a word...YET], every season and seems unmotivated. Could that be because he is in Detroit? I always think it is a red flag when guys aren’t improving with scale each season. I would be wary of paying him big money.

    Pau is interesting. A lot of people bash him and think he is not a fit, but in reality he is probably a GREAT fit. He is a solid defender, an excellent post scorer, and can put it on the floor. But he fits because he is a team player who can PASS the ball. The problem is how much you pay him. If you can get him for what Frye is making, or slightly more, LOCK HIM UP. If you are in the double digits, better have a team option in year 3.

    Deng costs too much and is absolutely not a fit.

    Signing Ariza would help, as he is a better version of Green [as in he plays D], so again, on a 3-4 year at 3-5 per, he is a very good signing.

    Finally, you forgot to add Ed Davis. I know there are a lot of guys here that advocate him, so he not beng in your poll is a mistake. I would sign Davis on a 3/9 deal, but no more than that, and only if Frye leaves.

    My guess is the Suns target an undervalued stretch 4 like Patrick Patterson.
