Suns getting praise for blowing up trade deadline


Somehow, the Suns traded away five players -- three of whom played major roles -- while improving the team's long-term outlook and maintaining its viability in the West playoff race. That shouldn't be possible, and perhaps time will render McDonough's haul less impressive. Regardless, the gambit will forever be remembered as incredible in its pure explosive power.
