Suns Seek 2nd Rounder For Brandon Knight

Feb 23, 2017 11:30 AM

The Phoenix Suns continue to shop Brandon Knight in trade scenarios.

Two years after the Suns traded a future pick from the Los Angeles Lakers, they are seeking an expiring contract and a high second rounder for Knight. The Milwaukee Bucks traded away Knight in a three-team trade with the Suns while acquiring Michael Carter-Williams from the Philadelphia 76ers. Carter-Williams was eventually traded to the Chicago Bulls for Tony Snell.

The Suns re-signed Knight in the 2015 offseason on a five-year, $70 million deal.

Raptors Debating Whether To Trade 1st Rounder For P.J. Tucker, Wilson Chandler

Feb 23, 2017 9:51 AM

The Toronto Raptors are considering whether to give up a first round pick in a trade for P.J. Tucker of the Phoenix Suns or Wilson Chandler of the Denver Nuggets.

The Raptors would likely include Jared Sullinger as salary filler in any such deal.

Toronto already traded for Serge Ibaka but Tucker would give Dwane Casey a player capable of playing both the 3 and the 4.

Tucker, who began his career with the Raptors, will be a free agent in the offseason.

Chandler has a player option to become a free agent in 2018.

Suns Didn't Want To Break Up Core To Acquire DeMarcus Cousins

Feb 20, 2017 8:35 PM

Ryan McDonough spoke publicly about the Phoenix Suns' interest in DeMarcus Cousins the day after he was traded by the Sacramento Kings to the New Orleans Pelicans.

“We would have traded for him at the right price,” said McDonough. “We didn’t want to break up our young core to get him.”

The Suns could have offered Cousins an opportunity to reunite with his former Kentucky teammate Eric Bledsoe.

Phoenix are owed a number of picks from the Miami Heat along with their own that they could have used to trade for Cousins.

According to a source that spoke with Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, the Suns offered a package of players and multiple first round picks.
