The NBA trade deadline is fast approaching, which means that teams around the NBA are starting to make calls to other teams inquiring about their trade chips. One such team making calls for a big name veteran are the Phoenix Suns and that big name veteran they inquired about recently was Zach Randolph from the Memphis Grizzlies.

According to Sam Amick from USA Today, the Suns were eon the phone with the Grizzlies to talk about what it would take to get Randolph away from them, as the Suns are armed with a string of first-round picks and Emeka Okafor in terms of trade chips.

Of course, the Grizzlies are saying that Randolph is not available, meaning that a deal likely won’t happen right now. But Memphis will likely reconsider things if they find out they won’t be able to re-sign Randolph before the season ends and he hits free agency.

Phoenix is keeping their options open when it comes to where they movie Okafor and their picks, but it appears that they’ll for sure be making a move.
