The Phoenix Suns are said to be in the market for a ‘big name’ player like Pau Gasol, but that player may not be out there – or at least – not affordable.
Ersan Ilyasova supposedly has expressed disappointment and could be a player the Suns can move forward with as a shooting power forward. Maybe the Bucks add Gary Neal, who played well for the Spurs and has been banished for some reason. The Suns have draft picks to sweeten a deal.
It would be a little shocking to see the Suns part with a first round draft pick, but if they did it would most likely be one of their extremely late first round picks.
The Bucks would certainly be selling low on Ilyasova, but they’d also be ridding themselves of his contract which pays him $8 million dollars for the next three seasons, though the final year is not fully guaranteed.
The Suns would be moving Emeka Okafor in the said scenario.
