It seems like the Phoenix Suns has not change since the 1980's, they only want players for 2 or 3 years before trading them. I guess to stay on the Phoenix team for longtivity without relocating your family you have to do the samething PG-Keven Johnson and Penny Hardaway did each season get injured. They gave away Kurt Thomas and a first rounder for no player in return so they wont have to pay the $10 million in luxury Tax. Meaning they are too Cheap to be a Championship Contender but they are a WINNING Team.
Kurt Thomas played an outstanding Role in Phoenix Post Season games, especially when Amare Stoudemire was suspended in the Spurs vs Suns game where the Spurs were beating poor Steve Nash up merciless throughout the series.
Marion is the longest player on the Phoenix roster and rumors after their post season game this season were that he would be traded this offseason because of their luxury Tax situation. But it look like Kurt Thomas name was pulled out of the hat instead of Marion. But .... then again, the offseason isnt over yet.
Lenny Wilkins is a sly G.M. now cleaning house for the Sonics much wiser than our Isiah Thomas who could not trade Allan Houston, whom all of us Old Knick Fans knew Allan Houston was never going to help Zeke out to get a WINNING season not after he traded Charlie Ward and Cold FIRED Coach Chaney before a game.
Lenny Wilkins got rid of all the veteran Franchise Players distractions from his Star Rookie Durant before Training-Camp starts this season.
The addition of C/F-Kurt Thomas is a Prize in itself to have in the same Lockerroom and Practice with Durant this 2007-8 season.
Kurt Thomas Performance is consistent and that is what Lenny Wilkins want from Durant. I do not see Lenny Wilkins getting rid of Kurt Thomas at all, he probably add two more seasons on his contract if the growth of Durant improvement start showing game after game this season to next season.
P.S. I still say that the BEST PF that could've help out the growth of Curry & Frye was Veteran Survivor Kurt Thomas. The same Marbury & Kurt Thomas Pick n Roll play that worked 70% of the time was used by the Knicks opositition teams the past two seasons and worked well in giving the Knicks a 23 and 33 WIN Season...
