Locked On Suns Friday: News roundup on Austin Rivers, the trade market and this weekend’s games

New, comments

We break down the Suns’ decision to buy out Rivers, where they could look next to upgrade the roster and what to expect as Phoenix tries to keep its win streak alive.

On today’s episode of Locked On Suns, we gave our thoughts on the confusing Austin Rivers situation. Less than 24 hours after the trade was made official, Phoenix waived him. Was it a locker room ordeal, and where could we see Rivers end up soon?

We’ve also seen plenty of listeners clamoring for the Suns to trade their own first-round pick this year. Does it make sense to do so at February’s trade deadline? We ran through some names who could make sense either within the next few weeks, or even in the summer, which included the following: D’Angelo Russell, Terry Rozier, Mike Conley, Kyle Lowry, and Jrue Holiday.

Speaking of the Pelicans, if the Suns land the No. 1 pick, do they have enough artillery to possibly land Anthony Davis? We quickly went over that option, whether it’s unrealistic or not.

Finally, we previewed Phoenix’s next three road games at Washington, Brooklyn, and Orlando. How do we see them doing?
