Why The Phoenix Suns Do The Deal
Some will suggest that this is a foolish deal for the Suns. They just acquired Kevin Durant – are we sure this deal makes them better right now?
Not entirely. At the same time, it does feel like a possibility. The Suns could use a more dynamic guard with their second unit. Hardaway Jr. provides them with one.
Moreover, Kleber is a useful player too. He can space the floor and defend in space. If the Suns can retain or replace Bismack Biyombo in free agency, they’ll have a solid platoon at the 5.
At the same time, the pair of first-round picks the Suns are acquiring here are also crucial.
