    We're 29 days from the deadline, with it being February 8th. It's early this year, ahead of the All-Star game, and I think that could help some in the future but I'd be surprised if there is a lot of activity this year.

    Here is a link to a Woj article about the deadline this year, even he doesn't see much happening with DeAndre Jordan being one of the biggest names out there but he's not drawing much interest.

    It's worth noting the G-League showcase this coming week will draw reps from most teams. That will be the new sort of meeting place since the deadline has been moved ahead of the All-Star game, where teams used to discuss trades. So if there is activity, it'll probably finish before the deadline.

    I do not see a difference maker that will help the Suns at the trade deadline although that can change. Last season it was Jusuf Nurkic.

    For the Suns to make a trade, it will have to be worth it in terms of less ping pong balls. If the Lakers were willing to do a minor trade for a second round pick(s) Ivica Zubac interests me.

    Of course the Suns would need to unload a center or two. ;)

    The Trail Blazers and Pistons seem to be the best choices as they are playoff teams and could really benefit from a shooting PF.

    Offhand, I think the Trail Blazers can offer more because they are stocked with young players.

    A pick and a young player should get it done.

    I'm curious if anyone will come knocking for Monroe, Chandler or Dudley. I would like to keep either one of Chandler or Dudley just to have a professional veteran with this young team, but having both is probably unnecessary. I doubt we'd get anything super attractive in return but one can dream...

    Simple question. What team will need a big for the playoffs, has an asset that would interest us, AND 17 million in salary to send us that will not cripple our future?

    The list is pretty short.

    Cleveland.

    Can't think of anyone else. Would have to be something like Fry, Shumpert and swap the Nets pick for the Miami pick. Maybe with top 5 protection on the Nets pick or something. It's looking to be about the same range as our #1. I would even give them the Miami pick AND the Milwaukee pick.

    Shumpert has another season left on his contract, unless he opts out. I don't know if it's worth a late lottery pick.

    I can't think of anything more more ironic and funny if the Suns traded for Dragic. The Suns have traded him twice but there is sort of a love-hate relationship going there.

    Only joking, but if Knight were included in the trade, it wouldn't be the worse trade ever. Booker and Dragic would work IMO. Probably give their draft pick (this draft) or the Bucks pick.

    End of brain storm. :D

    Booker and Dragic would be devastating.

    yeah I just have to laugh at the thought, but it would be a nice combo for sure. kind of like going back to your ex thinking it'll be better the 2nd, edit 3rd time around
