The Phoenix Suns are in desperate need of a point guard. This is who they can potentially trade for from the Central Division. Part two of a six-part series.

Phoenix Suns Owner Robert Sarver promised that the rebuild was over. The franchise was turning in the opposite direction, there would be no more tanking, and this was the time when the proverbial Phoenix rose from the ashes and the franchise began winning again.

There are a few stars in here, no doubt, and I only picked players where I believed an honest scenario could occur. I didn’t just throw out names of the best player on every team.

If Interim General Manager James Jones is able to pull off a trade for one of these point guards, hopefully it works out for the best because they are in dire need of help, and a point guard seems to be the best, first step towards fixing everything.

For now, let’s focus on the Central Division:
