Rationale For Phoenix Suns

Holding onto Devin Booker makes the most sense for the Phoenix Suns because the point of team-building is to land a talent like him to make the focus. There is more context to take consideration with this particular trade idea for the Suns.

The Suns have failed to make the playoffs during every season of Devin Booker’s career. The Western Conference is not only loaded, but has continued to improve. As things currently stand, Phoenix will have a time time making it without pulling off a major move.

If Booker grows tired of constantly being on the outside looking in when comes to the playoffs, asking for a trade would be the best resolution to that. Otherwise, he would need to do his best recruiting job to bring in more star power to The Valley.

There are a couple of potential limitations when it comes to this trade package; (1.) The 2020 NBA Draft is considered as being a weak-class. (2.) John Collins will need a contract extension soon and he will be seeking a max deal.

Unless the Suns are very confident in their scouting process being able to transcend a weak class and that Collins is worth that type of contract, looking elsewhere would be best. The Hawks certainly are an intriguing trade partner under the event Booker eventually asked out.
