3 Trades the Suns can still make after trading Deandre Ayton: Caris Levert
This trade would follow a similar logic to the Buddy Hield move, but it could still be an intriguing proposition for the Phoenix Suns, as they would be adding a genuine Sixth Man of the Year candidate.
At his best, LeVert can be one of the most dangerous scorers in the league. In a bench role for the Suns, he could have a real chance to win 6MOTY, and that’s something Phoenix should want on the roster.
As much as Devin Booker, Bradley Beal, and Kevin Durant will have the ball in their hands, they won’t always be on the court. And to take it a step further, they won’t play in every game.
Having a guy like LeVert on the bench who can fill it up would improve the already-lethal Suns offense even more and give them a reliable ball-handling threat to boot.
Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers could use this trade to spread out their depth a bit, as signing Max Strus this summer may have made LeVert a bit more expendable.
Strus is expected to step in as the team’s starting small forward, so flipping LeVert for Grayson Allen and Nassir Little would give them some improved depth off the bench.
Allen’s three-point shooting combined with Georges Niang’s off the bench would take a rough shooting squad from last year and turn it into a dangerous one.
Meanwhile, Nassir Little’s two-way presence would be a nice addition to an already impressive Cavaliers defensive unit, and he could also be a nice fit moving forward next to Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen on that end.
