Why the Trade Benefits the Phoenix Suns
Parting ways with a franchise player like Devin Booker is tough but the Boston Celtics have enough talent and NBA Draft assets to put together an intriguing trade package. At some point, consolidating their potential offerings for a dynamic talent may be the answer.
In this deal, they would acquire another potential franchise player in Jaylen Brown. He is 24-years old and coming off a season where he averaged 20.3 points per game on 48.1% shooting and 38.2% from three-point range.
The Suns would have the No. 10 and No. 14 picks in the 2020 NBA Draft where they could add more promising talent. Obviously, giving up Booker would not require the Suns to part ways with anyone else. Deandre Ayton and Mikal Bridges will remain in place.
This is a move to shake up the franchise. They can finally add more pieces to their team while acquiring a replacement for Booker. This is an interesting deal for the Suns and one that might not be welcomed at first, but it would grow on fans over time.
