John Gambadoro — co-host of the “Burns and Gambo Show” on KMVP-FM 98.7 in Phoenix — said the Kings and New York Knicks would have interest in Jackson. Gambadoro described Jackson as a gifted player, but he said Jackson has been a “pain in the a–” and his trade value might have plummeted with his latest arrest. “It’s not a talent thing,” Gambadoro said during his Monday radio show. “The kid’s got a ton of talent. It’s just the Suns enabled him from the start and it’s more about the type of person he is, the type of player he is. They know he’s super talented, but it might be time for a new start.

For the teams looking to add Irving, locking him in before camp opens gives the acquiring team the best chance to fill in their roster around a ramped-up plan that includes Irving. League sources continue to label the Suns as the team with the right assets to obtain Irving, but they remain reluctant to include rookie Josh Jackson or third-year stud Devin Booker in any conversation. Jackson became trade eligible last week and recently joked at the Panini rookie photo shoot that he’d heard the rumors, but if it were going to happen, it would have happened by now.

“A little talking to my agent, not really checking social media, because that’t not the way to go. People just say whatever. I handled it the same way I tried to handle Draft Night. Coming in, I didn’t know what was going to happen, I still don’t know what is going to happen. I’m going to make the most of whatever situation I’m presented with. If I’m traded to China, whatever, I’m gonna come out, I’m gonna be happy, just try to make the best of it.

Andrew Wiggins: To be honest, since I was in Minnesota, I always felt like I was one of the best. I always felt like I could defend, I felt like I could score as well as anybody. So I just knew my time was up here [Minnesota], we have reached the end of our journey, and that was a new chapter opening up in Golden State. So now it’s a bigger stage and it’s really time to showcase what I can do.
