Offseason Moves

Other than hiring Porter -- who did a decent job in Milwaukee and will probably do a decent job here when he isn't being asked to dismantle one of the greatest offensive machines in league history -- the Suns had a fairly quiet offseason.

• Drafted Robin Lopez and Goran Dragic. Lopez was a straightforward call as an energy and defensive guy who can come in with the second unit; in a draft with a slew of backup center types available, it made sense to nab one in the latter half of the first round. One can argue about whether he was the right one to nab, but that's a po-tay-to versus po-tah-to debate.
