Phoenix Suns

Just like several of the other teams at the bottom of their conference, the Phoenix Suns would bring in Green for next year. Their season right now is already finished. Unlike Dallas and New Orleans, the Suns aren’t re-entering playoff position anytime soon.

However, next season, they have a new slate. They could have a rejuvenated Devin Booker to lead the offense and Draymond Green to dominate the defensive side of the ball. Mikal Bridges, Deandre Ayton, Booker along with Green make an interesting lineup in the West.

The Suns might want to keep their draft picks just in case their tank life takes longer than a few more years. With Green, the team should have a solid veteran leader to lead the young core into the future.

Would the Suns be willing to part ways with two young prospects and a pick is the question most pressing though. Jackson and Warren have still yet to peak while the pick could be top-five or out of the lottery in two seasons.

Is that risk worth it for Phoenix?
