Marc Stein: As one source sagely explains: Suns certainly have player to appeal to PORT in sign-and-trade if LaMarcus Aldridge chooses PHX: Eric Bledsoe. Blazers GM Neil Olshey drafted Bledsoe for Clips. If Aldridge springs surprise & chooses Phoenix, Suns could offer Bledsoe in sign-and-trade
David Aldridge: Still think Suns are dark horse for Aldridge, but 1) they do have quality PGs, which he wants, 2) with Chandler, they have legit center.
The Suns and Dallas Mavericks could possibly work a sign-and-trade agreement involving Chandler and Brandan Wright. Wright was a popular player with the Mavericks before they included him in the Rajon Rondo trade with Boston last season.

Cleveland still has plenty of work to do in free agency — with Iman Shumpert, J.R. Smith and Matthew Dellavedova all in line for new contracts, as well — but the commitments Cavs owner Dan Gilbert already has made in the first few hours of free agency to Love and Thompson send a strong message to James about the franchise’s commitment to winning, since it ensures that the Cavaliers are headed for a massive luxury-tax bill after the upcoming season.
