At this year’s trade deadline, the Phoenix Suns took a massive swing, trading for Kevin Durant in an attempt to improve their championship odds. They gave up a massive haul that included Mikal Bridges, Cameron Johnson, and lots of first-round picks.
And while they got through the first round of the playoffs, their season ended the same way it did last year—they lost in a blowout in their final game of the season.
Last year, it was at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks. This time around, the Denver Nuggets blew them out in Game 6. Two-straight years, two-straight blowout losses.
3 Chris Paul trades for the Phoenix Suns to consider
One of those changes will likely be an attempt to trade point guard Chris Paul. His age is clearly getting in the way of his play, and with Devin Booker and Durant leading the charge, they could use some depth.
At 38 years old, Paul still has two years left on his contract. Next season is only partially guaranteed for Paul, so the Suns could waive him and just eat some money, and then the following year is fully non-guaranteed.
However, Phoenix would obviously rather trade him in an attempt to recoup some value in exchange for Paul. The question is, will there be any teams out there willing to trade for the point guard?
With all that in mind, here are three potential trades the Suns should consider involving Paul.
