NBA Movement Before the Deadline, Suns Remain Still

The biggest deal this season has gone down between the New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks on Thursday as the Knicks send Kristaps Porzingis ,Trey Burke, Courtney Lee and Tim Hardaway Jr. to the Mavs.

In return the Knicks get two future first-round picks, Dennis Smith Jr. and two veterans on expiring contracts in Wesley Matthews and DeAndre Jordan.

The trade was a result in accommodating the trade request of Porzingus a few hours before the trade. It was said of Knick front office that Porzingus was not on board with the clubs future plans and wished to be moved.

Strong move by the Mavs that pares two of the best international players together, much like the San Antonio Spurs championship teams with Parker Ganobli and others.

Porzingus and Doncic will be the next West team to emerge as a power house to be recon with, and that puts the Phoenix Suns further in the background lost like a sock under the dirty laundry. 

Suns fan would probably be asking themselves why does these big deals happen for every other team in the league but the Suns? and the answer to that question come back to the front office and the way they have done things for the last nine years.

Lots of quick decision making has lead to a lot of bad deals for bad players, and Interim GM James Jones said in an interview that they do not want to rush into a bad deal.

The time-line has been interrupted once again and the Suns are dangling in limbo as to which direction they are going. Passing on several point guards they were reportedly interested in but making no moves, and continue to be in desperate need of one.

The latest rumor that the Suns and Lakers have mutual interest in doing a deal for guard Lanzo Ball and that contingent on the Lakers being able to land Anthony Davis from New Orleans.

Trade deadline is right around the corner and lots of potential movement seems to be ready to happen, but will the Suns be players in the mix? or will they remain on the outside looking in on all the super teams being orchestrated by players.
