Grayson Allen is the poster child for this group, as he’s the Suns' single best role player and trade chip this year. His play next to the stars has been superb, but he would also unlock a tier of trade candidates that the Suns wouldn't be able to acquire without him.

If a trade materializes for one, Eubanks would probably be involved. If not, then they can't afford let him go, especially with how he's playing now.
