Phoenix Suns Looking to Add Veteran Point Guard, Willing to Move Pick
Likely disappointed after slipping all the way down to number 6 in the draft lottery, the Phoenix Suns are informing teams that they’ve made the pick available in a trade for the right veteran guard.
The Phoenix Suns are reportedly open to trading their sixth pick in the draft for a veteran point guard. Could this be a fit for a Mike Conley trade?

It’s no secret that the Suns desperately need a point guard, and many thought that the answer may be Ja Morant. They are in such dire straits at the point guard position that this past season they were forced to resort to the likes of De’Anthony Melton, Elie Okobo and Isaiah Cannon.
At No.6, they could still potentially target someone like Vanderbilt’s Darius Garland or North Carolina’s Coby White to become their point guard of the future but they likely don’t see that high of a ceiling with those guys. Also, remember that the Suns lack experience in general. Maybe adding a veteran point guard to go with all of their young players is what this team needs.
Either way, start the trade rumours because there are a lot of potential names that could be included here. Mike Conley comes to mind, as the Grizzlies are looking to rebuild and could use another high-end prospect. Spencer Dinwiddie may also be a possibility as D’Angelo Russell cemented himself as the lead-guard in Brooklyn. Jeff Teague could also be another possibility after a disappointing season with the Timbewolves.
