Locked On Suns Friday: What if the Kyrie Irving trade actually happened?

The current era of Suns basketball would look way different with Kyrie and Devin Booker in the backcourt.

The biggest What If in the Ryan McDonough era slipped through the Suns’ fingertips in 2017. Kyrie Irving was available for trade, but, reportedly, Phoenix wasn’t willing to part with Josh Jackson or other future assets to make it happen.

What if the Suns actually went through with this proposed three-way trade sending Jackson and Eric Bledsoe away? Paul George winds up as LeBron James’ new teammate, plus Irving helps form a lethal young backcourt alongside Devin Booker.

Does Irving stay in Phoenix long-term, or does he bolt for greener pastures after two seasons in the Valley?
