Suns draft rumors: Spurs looking in Suns direction for a predraft trade

New, comments

That direction is up.

Oh boy. The rumor is that the San Antonio Spurs are looking to move up in the NBA Draft for the first time in five years.

The last time San Antonio made such a move, head coach Gregg Popovich shipped George Hill to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for the 15th overall pick. That pick was Kawhi Leonard. The Spurs won that one.

While they may have seemed like unlikely trade partners before this news, with three first round picks ahead of San Antonio could Phoenix have what the Spurs are looking for? Who has caught Popvich's eye and what would it take to acquire a Suns pick?
