According to NBA insider Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports, the Phoenix Suns will no longer trade Grayson Allen.

The Suns were exploring what the combination of Allen and Nassir Little could bring back in a trade, but Allen is no longer on the trade market.

“Allen has played so well in Phoenix, as part of the three-team megadeal that landed Lillard in Milwaukee, the Suns are no longer considering him for a trade prior to next month’s deadline, according to league sources,” Fischer wrote.

Allen is averaging 13.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.6 blocks this season while shooting 50.7% from the field, 49.1% from beyond the arc and 90.0% from the free-throw line. He leads the NBA in 3-point field goal percentage.

“My name has been in someone’s tweet every year since I’ve been in the league,” Allen said while talking about being in trade rumors. “I hardly pay any attention to it. Usually, it brings a smile to my face because it’s a little funny. I’ve loved playing here this season. I love playing with this team. I don’t want to be traded.”

Allen is making $8.5 million this season in the final year of his contract. The Suns are 25-18. They are in sixth place in the Western Conference standings.
