Locked On Suns Wednesday: Breaking down the Kennard trade talks and James Jones’ latest comments as deadline nears

The Suns desperately need bench help, and Luke Kennard fits the billing in many ways.

Out of nowhere, the Phoenix Suns have been in the news for trade talks to help improve their bench. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported late Monday night that Luke Kennard could be on his way to Phoenix in exchange for Jevon Carter, Elie Okobo, and a future first-round draft pick.

Kennard checks all the boxes Suns GM James Jones seems to covet in players fitting alongside Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton. Is Kennard a long-term piece to help the Suns become a winning team, though?

After we break down the Kennard talks, we look into what James Jones said about his philosophy when it comes to this year’s NBA Draft.
