Andre Iguodala ... a Sun?

With the recent additions of Luis Scola and Michael Beasley, the Suns are busting at the seams with big men.

With Grant Hill agreeing to sign with the Clippers and the recent amnestying of Josh Childress, the Suns find themselves very short on small forwards.

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?

The Philadelphia 76ers apparently have had rumors swirling around a possible trade of Andre Iguodala.

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?
