Should the Suns facilitate and benefit from the Clippers getting Lebron? Poll included

In his recent column (http://grantland.com/features/24-lingering-questions-from-the-nba-finals/), Bill Simons wrote a paragraph on the potential scenario of Lebron signing for the Clippers as a free agent. Basically, he said the Clippers are exploring the possibility of trading away everyone except Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick, to create sufficient cap space. If there's a possibility that this is true, should the Suns be on the lookout for possibilites to facilitate and in the process benefit from the purge in the City of angels?

Here is what Simmons wrote:
"LeBron rolls with Doc and CP3 in Los Angeles — something that would only require the Clippers to trade DeAndre Jordan’s expiring deal, Matt Barnes’s expiring deal and Jamal Crawford’s deal (expires in 2016) to different teams with cap space (super-easy), then use last year’s first round pick (Reggie Bullock) and/or a future first rounder, along with $3 million of Steve Ballmer’s money (chump change!), to dump Jared Dudley (two years, $8.5 million remaining) on someone with cap space (also doable). Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick will make about $48 million combined next season — if the Clips cleared everyone else (again, VERY doable), they could offer LeBron a deal starting at around $15 million. And he’d get to reinvent himself in Los Angeles, with a coach he loves, a superstar he respects and a billionaire owner who’s ready to splurge on a great team./.../And don’t think the Clips aren’t pursuing it, because they are."

Of the available players, the one that intrigues me the most is DeAndre Jordan, who has a 11m$ expiring contract, and who will be an unrestricted free agent after the 14/15 season. If the Clippers are looking to clear sufficient cap space by trading away Jordan and/or other players, should the Suns get involved, and if so, which players to target and for what price? Please, share your thought in the comment section and through voting in the poll!
