How will the Suns decide to balance their roster? It seems logical that they would be angling for a trade.
Who could they be looking to trade for?
With a plethora of big men and shortage of small forwards, I was curious to see if I could find a team that had an over abundance of small forwards and a need for big men.
What did I find?
You mean the 76ers are looking to trade their superstar small forward, who is now hooping for Team USA, and are apparently in need of big men?
It seems like a great arrangement for both teams.
The Suns have a U of A connection with Sarver and Channing Frye, and the alma mater just 1.5 hours away.
It seems like a great move for the Suns as it would:
- Bring in a legit super star
- Fill a need at small forward
- Fill the need for someone who can score the basketball at crunch time
- Bring some excitement to the Suns fan base (at least the U of A portion ... and some of the Sun Devil fans)
The Suns would obviously have to provide some significant value in return: probably be 2-3 players and draft picks.
The big men options include: Marcin Gortat, Channing Frye, Robin Lopez, Michael Beasley, Markieff Morris, or Hakim Warrick.
Apparently they are unable to trade Luis Scola for 1 year after picking him off the amnesty waiver. So he is off the table.
It seems like the Suns may be angling for such a trade. If they are not, they should be, in my opinion.
What do you think?
