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.

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