NBA Draft Rumors: Devin Booker for Kristaps Porzingis Trade Proposed by Knicks

The Knicks made a crazy trade proposal to the Suns for their young star.

The Phoenix Suns have a strong core of Kentucky Wildcats, but we probably should expect at least on Cat to depart this offseason.

Between Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight, Devin Booker and Tyler Ulis, there’s just not enough room for everyone to get meaningful minutes, especially guys like Knight and Bledsoe with their big-money contracts.

But could Phoenix instead opt to move Devin Booker?

Doubtful, but his name has emerged in trade discussions with the New York Knicks for star big man Kristaps Porzingis.

Again, this deal is unlikely to happen, as Booker has risen to the same tier of stardom as Porzingis. Phoenix isn’t giving up a top-five draft pick and Booker for Porzingis.

Hopefully, the Suns will end up making some deals that give Booker some help, not get rid of him for another star. We all want to see Booker and Ulis thrive in the Valley of the Sun.

I do think we’ll eventually see Knight or Bledsoe shipped out of Phoenix, possibly as soon as Thursday during the NBA Draft.
