Storyline: Troy Daniels Trade

8 rumors in this storyline

Question Will the Suns make a deal before Thursday’s trading deadline? Scott Bordow: If Phoenix does make a deal, it likely will be a minor one. The Suns wouldn’t mind shedding Tyson Chandler’s $13.5 million contract next season but trading him is difficult for a couple of reasons. First, the market is limited for a 35-year-old center who isn’t a game-changer. Second, Phoenix doesn’t want salary in return unless it’s attached to a young, established player, and how many of those are lying around and could be had for Chandler? The most likely candidate to be dealt is backup shooting guard Troy Daniels, who will make just $3.2 million in 2018-19. Dealing Daniels would enable Phoenix to get a good look at rookie Davon Reed over the final 25 games of the season. But it’s unlikely the Suns could get anything more than a second-round pick for Daniels. The same goes for Alex Len, who will be an unrestricted free agent. It’s hard to imagine teams wanting to part with a first-round pick for Len, who started strongly this season but has been wildly inconsistent the past month.
