A year after the Suns made a max offer to Eric Gordon, which was quickly matched by New Orleans, the Phoenix Suns are "reportedly" planning to overpay Utah SF Gordon Hayward next summer. First of all, make what you will of a rumor like this. It's just a tweet and those are free - and don't need any attribution. Second of all, even if this was totally true, unless the "GM" was McDonough himself, it's 100% pure speculation. Third of all, even if the source was McDonough himself, July 1 is a LONNNNNNGGGG way off. Gotta think that if the Suns get a great SF in the draft next year, Hayward wouldn't be such a priority. Fourth of all, even if the source was McDonough and the clock moved forward to July 1 by magic today, it's tough - if not impossible - to make any RFA offer "unmatchable".
