The Phoenix Suns offered Chris Paul, Jae Crowder, and a first-round pick for Kyrie Irving, sources told Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Nets reportedly would have accepted the Suns deal had they increased the amount to three first-round picks.

The Suns made the proposal within 18 hours of Irving's original trade demand, but then lost interest over time and never made an improved offer.

The Suns are expected to be active before the upcoming trade deadline.
