2. Phoenix Suns

Listen, the Phoenix Suns have to start making a change. They are currently the worst team in the NBA standing at 4-20. Something has got to give.

Devin Booker is ready to be a star now and Deandre Ayton is an animal. These are two pieces that can put together wins immediately if given the proper supporting cast.

Usually, it’s never a problem carrying to much talent, but for the Suns it is. They need to trade some young assets to get fill out a solid starting unit and a couple bench spots. The individuals they currently roster are young and inexperienced.

Phoenix needs to start making themselves an attractive location for free agents to desire. With the addition of Porter, the Suns bolster their starting lineup. In addition, Tomas Satoransky can provide bench depth for the Suns.

Afterwards, they could offload Trevor Ariza’s contract and get more assets in return. Contenders will be at Phoenix’s doorstep in hopes to obtain Ariza’s services.

Washington would be lucky if they could acquire T.J. Warren and Mikal Bridges. Young talent at the wing and forward positions for the future would be welcomed. Unfortunately, the team would have to take on the contract of someone like Ryan Anderson, but he can serve his role and give the team more depth in the shooting department.
