Why The Phoenix Suns Do The Deal 

Of every team in this deal, the Suns’ motivations are the hardest to predict. 

The Rockets are obviously rebuilding. In fact, they’ve got the worst record in the NBA. They are blatantly tanking. 

Meanwhile, the Bucks are one of the league’s best teams. By contrast, the Suns are 23-24. This team could head in any number of directions. 

This deal has them advancing towards contention. Crowder hasn’t been playing anyway, so they’re effectively adding Gordon and Allen for free.
