Boston Celtics

Celtics Get
Cheick Diallo
Suns Get
Semi Ojeleye

Not a lot of trades that make sense between the Suns and Celtics. The C’s could use an athletic shot blocker like Diallo and Ojeleye is an NBA rotation player for many teams that struggles to get minutes on a team loaded on the wing.

Brooklyn Nets

Nets Get
Kelly Oubre Jr.
Jalen Lecque
2020 #10 pick
Suns Get
Spencer Dinwiddie
Taurean Prince
2020 #19 pick

I talk about this in great detail in a recent piece, but Dinwiddie’s combination of play-making and shot-making abilities, size, and positional versatility make him a perfect fit as the Phoenix Suns’ sixth man and third guard.

He can play alongside any combination of Booker, Rubio, Carter, and Payne.

New York Knicks

Knicks Get
Jalen Lecque
Suns Get
Wayne Ellington

The Knicks have almost zero foundational pieces for the future (I am not a R.J. Barrett guy, low basketball I.Q.) and are in dire need of some potential.

Taking a shot in the dark on Lecque and giving the Suns another veteran who can shoot just makes sense.

Philadelphia 76ers

76ers Get
Kelly Oubre Jr.
2020 #10 pick
2022 first-round pick (top 1 protected)
Ricky Rubio
Suns Get
Ben Simmons

Philly likely is not interested in this package and likely keeps Ben Simmons unless they get a Godfather offer, but imagine a Simmons-Booker-Bridges-Johnson-Ayton lineup.

That would be terrifying and so difficult to score on.

Toronto Raptors: Nothing

Getting a sign-and-trade deal for Fred VanVleet would be amazing, but the Raptors are not letting him go this summer.
