Josh Jackson    F  Suns

 

 

Josh Jackson doesn't think he'll be included in a trade package that would net the Suns Kyrie Irving. "I think if that was going to happen, it would’ve happened by now," Jackson said when asked about the rumors that have involved him and Irving. "A little talking to my agent, not really checking social media because that’s not the way to go. People just say whatever." There's still plenty of time for such a deal to go through, and it's worth noting that Jackson hasn't been told by the Suns' brass that he definitely won't be traded, but there have been reports indicating it'll be very tough for Cleveland to pry Jackson away from Phoenix this summer.

Dragan Bender    F  Suns

 

 

The Suns could offer Dragan Bender in a trade for Kyrie Irving, according to Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN in Minnesota. Phoenix radio host John Gambadoro also confirmed this report, saying the offer is "not new" and that the Suns are willing to deal Bender, Eric Bledsoe and the Miami pick for Irving. Bender is more of a project and his ankle injury last season limited him to just 13.3 minutes per game over his 43 outings. While he did have a good summer league, Bender is behind fellow top-10 2016 pick Marquese Chriss right now.

Eric Bledsoe    G  Suns

 

 

The Suns would be willing to trade Eric Bledsoe to Cleveland as part of a deal for Kyrie Irving, according to Terry Pluto of Cleveland.com. The report also claims that Phoenix would include Bledsoe in a package even if Irving wasn't willing to commit to the Suns long term. However, Phoenix does not want to part with rookie Josh Jackson. The Cavs obviously have a great interest in Devin Booker as well, but Booker is "as close to untouchable as anyone on the Suns' roster." Bledsoe is good friends with LeBron James, as the two share the same agent and often work out together, so the Suns will continue to be one of the teams mentioned as a possible trade partner.

Devin Booker    G  Suns

 

 

Devin Booker has been informed by the Suns that he won't be part of any potential deal for Kyrie Irving according to Joe Vardon of the Cleveland Plain Dealer The 20-year-old star is likely the only untouchable on the roster other than Josh Jackson -- the Suns told Jackson that he won't be moved either. Booker's usage rate would take a hit if the Suns brought in Irving, but his efficiency would likely improve after shooting 42.3 percent from the field in both his rookie and sophomore seasons.

Dragan Bender    F  Suns

 

 

Dragan Bender will play for Croatia at Eurobasket 2017. He was terrific in Las Vegas and showed plenty of position flexibility. Bender's ankle injury cut his rookie season short, but he should be a key player to watch for a stacked Croatian team. He should be in the rotation for the Suns and is a late-round sleeper in deep leagues.

Devin Booker    G  Suns

 

 

While being interviewed on the Arizona Diamondbacks broadcast on Wednesday, Devin Booker said his primary goal for the 2016-17 season is to win. "That goal stays consistent, so turning around this franchise and getting it back to where it was... that's my ultimate goal," Booker said. Sadly, no muscle watch or adding new stuff to his game with this quote. Perhaps the interesting part of this quote is how the Suns just openly said they're going to take a patient approach to how they turn their team around. Whatever the case, Booker is untouchable in trades and should be extremely busy as the primary scorer.

Alan Williams    C  Suns

 

 

Suns sign C Alan Williams. It's official on what is reportedly a three-year, $17 million deal, and Big Sauce said he waited to sign the deal to help the Suns have more flexibility in free agency. He's one of the most liked players on the team for his bench celebrations and charisma, and he's also a Phoenix guy with his mom being Chief of Police for the city. Williams is still going to have to play behind Tyson Chandler, but the Suns will definitely be resting Chandler a ton -- Marquese Chriss will play some five, too. Williams getting his deal likely means Alex Len is headed elsewhere/

Eric Bledsoe    G  Suns

 

 

LeBron James will be working out with Derrick Rose, Eric Bledsoe and others in Las Vegas, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes. This will probably help fuel the Bledsoe for Kyrie Irving trade rumors. Although, Bledsoe and LeBron have been close for years, they have worked out together before, and they both have Rich Paul as their agent. In other words, this is not a surprise and there's a very good chance this has nothing to do with the trade rumor. Bledsoe has said he'd like to win now and the Suns would probably like to move him to focus on their player development, so expect plenty of rumors to follow.

Jared Sullinger    F/C  Suns

 

 

The Nets have interest in unrestricted free agent Jared Sullinger, but according to sources of Anthony Puccio of the Nets Daily, there are rumblings that Sullinger could be headed to China. The Nets actually have a decent amount of cap space available, so they could potentially make a competitive offer to Sullinger, but he'd be able to be more of a focal point of the offense in China. It'll be interesting to see how this one plays out, but if Sullinger is awarded a "show-me" deal by Brooklyn, he could start making blips on the deep league radar.

Josh Jackson    F  Suns

 

 

John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 is reporting that Josh Jackson won't be included in any potential deal for Kyrie Irving. There have already been reports linking Irving to the Suns in exchange for Bledsoe and a collection of picks and/or prospects, but ESPN's Ramona Shelburne said the Suns have reassured Jackson of their intention to keep him. The two-way forward showcased his upside at the Summer League with 17.4 points, 9.2 boards, 1.6 dimes, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks per game and is a dark horse to lead all rookies in minutes because of his ability to play multiple positions.
