The Phoenix Suns were arguably the biggest winners ahead of the NBA trade deadline, acquiring Kevin Durant from the Brooklyn Nets. While that move cemented their status as contenders in the Western Conference, they could still use some more upgrades on the roster.
Throughout the season, depth has been a need for Phoenix. Theirs was tested with the number of injuries they have sustained and parting ways with multiple players to land Durant certainly didn’t help.
In addition to Durant, the team did make other additions to the frontcourt. T.J. Warren was also acquired from the Nets and Darius Bazley was acquired from the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Dario Saric in a cap-saving move. On the buyout market, Terrance Ross was signed after parting ways with the Orlando Magic.
Conspicuously absent from that list is a backcourt player. The Suns could use some help there as Chris Paul and Cameron Payne are the only two point guards on their roster with full-time contracts. The only other player they have listed at the position is Saben Lee on a two-way deal.
