Andre Drummond to Suns chatter

You’ve probably heard this before.

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Houston Rockets Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports

I know what you’re wondering. How was the show last night? Coolio, Biz Markie, TLC, Rob Base, and Color Me Badd in Las Vegas. I got the tickets via a seat filler website. I’d pay $0.00 to see them again. They’re actually performing at Talking Stick Resort Arena tonight if you’re so inclined.

There’s no entertainment like Phoenix Suns offseason trade rumors, though. This week we were treated to speculation that Eric Bledsoe could be on the move. Now, Andre Drummond to Phoenix talks have heated up once again.

Sports Illustrated’s Jake Fischer writes that last month Phoenix, along with Pacific Division rival Sacramento and Toronto were very interested in striking a deal for Drummond.

“Toronto called dangling Jonas Valanciunas before the deadline, and Sacramento and Phoenix also expressed strong interest in Drummond in June, per sources.”

Could a deal involving Drummond still happen? Fischer thinks so.

“There's enough grease to ultimately move the wheels and find Drummond a new home before the season starts, and he's almost certainly not finishing out the final four years of his five-year, max contract in Detroit.”

“He will very likely be wearing a new jersey by the end of the 2017-18 season. Why not now?”

Drummond in Phoenix, we’ve had this discussion before. That was before we had come up with a clever hashtag representing a new era of Suns basketball. Should general manager Ryan McDonough make a deal?
