Suns draft update

Posted by on June 25th, 4:07 pm

PHOENIX – With the draft beginning within the hour, the Suns still haven’t found their guy. 

While in the Suns’ Dick Van Arsdale Conference Room before the draft, Kerr did not sound too confident in who the Suns may grab with the 14th pick.  

When asked about 14 Kerr said, “14 is all over the place.”  

He went on to say, “I don’t think the 14th pick will come in and break our rotation.”

It is seeming more and more like whoever the Suns do have there sights on will not be there at 14, i.e. Earl Clark, Jonny Flynn, etc. will not be available, possibly leading to another Suns draft day trade.

When Kerr was asked if the Suns would consider a trade or consider moving the pick Kerr responded quite emphatically, “We will absolutely consider moving it.”

Kerr also announced that the Suns continue to field calls for Nash, Amar’e and J-Rich among others.

“We’ve had tons of phone calls on everybody,” Kerr said.

No new trades, no new rumors, but only time will tell.
