Cleveland Cavaliers Receive: F Jae Crowder, G Landry Shamet
Phoenix Suns Receive: G/F Caris LeVert
Every NBA team is looking to build towards an NBA championship. If they’re not looking to win one right now, they’re looking to win one eventually.
On the other hand, some organizations are a little more desperate to win than others.
There are not many teams across the National Basketball Association who’ve never tasted that victory. For the most part, NBA teams get their time in the sun. Even if it was a long time ago, having sat at that table gives a franchise a different air.
It’s one the Phoenix Suns don’t have. They’re one of the few NBA teams who’ve never won a title. Granted, they’ve gotten close – the Suns made the NBA Finals in the 90s aside from their most recent appearance. Close, as they say, is for horseshoes and hand grenades.

On the other hand, the Cavaliers have plenty to prove in their own right. This organization has never won an NBA title unless hometown hero LeBron James was on their roster – in fact, they haven’t even come close.
Surely, they’d like to win one that critics can’t point to and say they relied on luck to win.
Does this deal get them closer to that goal?
