2. Andre Drummond

The Chicago Bulls have been in the news since the start of the season as they've struggled to improve their campaign. There have been rumors that the Bulls could blow up their current roster. With this, the Suns can pursue an elite rebounder and shot blocker in Andre Drummond.

Drummond has accepted his role as a backup center since getting traded by the Detroit Pistons. The former All-Star center has played 47 games for Chicago, averaging 7.8 points and 8.3 rebounds in 15.9 minutes. The 6-foot-11 can control the boards on both ends. What's more impressive is his ability to grab offensive rebounds, which could be valuable as the Suns have a plethora of scorers.

The 30-year-old center is in the final year of his two-year, $6.5 million deal with Chicago. With rumors that the Bulls could start to rebuild their roster, there's a chance that Drummond won't be back with the team. The Suns can take the risk and trade Eubanks and Yuta Watanabe for the two-time center. Some fans might not agree with trading away The Shaq of Troutdale, but a chance of having an elite rebounder doesn't arrive too often.
