This was a no brainer move, both the Telfair and Morris moves that is.....basically the Suns FO (which rarely deserves any praise) gets a pat on the back here. They flipped Telfair for an improvig second year 1st rounder.  With out question Morris is a bigger asset than Telfair.  We don't know what offers were out there all we know is what the Suns did do.  I would have loved it if they could have made a trade back to relevancy and contending, but single after single with patience can turn into something good.  Not sure at all what the Suns plan going forward is, but lets just say they have flexability and assets.  Things are not as hopeless as some Suns fans like to make it out to be.

Couldn't agree more on Ellis, meaning Suns will probably get him and in 6 months being the loyal fans we are we'll be talking ourselves into him just like we did with Hedo T. a couple years ago.

 

Like the idea of going after a center though as you proposed with Bogut.  Heard rumors that the Nets are looking to get some floor spacers, and also expessed interest in JSmoove from Atl.  Was messing with the trade machine and came up witha trade scenario I thought would benefit 4 teams.  http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=abfa9x4

 

Obviously this is not gonna happen,but I do think B Lopez could have a roster built around him, and Dragic is a great start.

 The problem on Smith is all the Suns would get in a sign and trade is the asset whatever it may be in the trade....Suns are easily under the cap and would recieve no such exception.

 

As far as the offer goes, I hope the Suns won't be dumb enough to throw in a first rounder....some of these Knicks fans are insane.  I saw some saying it was only a good trade if the Suns throw in there own pick unprotected.  I'd hate to burst the Knicks fans bubbles but we're not talking about a proven player in Shumpert....I understand he has more upside than Duds, but that's just it it's upside.  Duds is the better player right now.  The Knicks would be fortunate IMO to get Duds and O'Neal for Shumpert and Camby and that means the Suns are taking back a bad contract for the Knicks.  I think that's a good deal for the Knicks and a fair one for the Suns if they really value Shumpert that much.  Personally I think they'd be better to wait till the end of the season and for Scola to become available.  In the meantime just be the facilitaing third team in deals right now by renting their cap space out.
