Phoenix still working to get Al Jefferson but Utah are not willing to take Gortat due to Enes Kanter, the Suns are looking for a 3rd team that will take Gortat and give Utah a PG/SF in return

In a heartbeat, but there is a small problem.

Our SF's are two of the most important players on our team right now, and we don't have a PG.

I'm sure Phoenix would settle for Melo. Dont know if any of those teams want Bass though.

If Utah would pull the trigger for Green, the Celtics pull the trigger.

A backup SF for the Celtics.




But then again, without a source, I will think of this as a bogus rumor.

Won't Pheonix have cap room to sign him though? Or did they blow that already.

Do they really need to give up much aside from Gortat (they have some expiring deals, which will reach the salary)?  I mean really, everyone knows Jefferson is leaving Utah, what else do they have to give up to get him?

If Utah does really want a third team, I'd probably consider something like this, which I think might work for all 3 teams

BOS - Gortat, Dudley, Marvin Williams
UTA - Pierce
PHO - Jefferson, Melo

Minor pieces can be added as necessary.
2014 Pick 2 Draft 18th pick of 20
Sacramento Kings
Starters - Isaiah Thomas, Eric Gordon, Jimmy Butler, Dirk Nowitzki, Demarcus Cousins
Bench - Kendall Marshall, Michael Carter-Williams, Vince Carter, Wesley Johnson, Marcus Morris, Miles Plumlee, Nerlens Noel

Not good. 


If the team is going after Gortat to improve the team this season, there is no reason to give up Pierce. 


And no reason to bring back Williams.  He is basically Green clone.

If it is only Gortat, then they don't really have the framework for a deal yet by the sounds of it. They are just interested in Big Al but are nowhere on a deal. If there are other pieces in the mix that Utah wants from Phoenix, then the Suns are on their way.

Gortat is a fair return for Big Al. Utah just have no interest in him by the sounds of it (as one would expect given their big man situation).

Yeah, it's a terrible idea. Phoenix is such a badly run organization.

Would love to get in on the Gortat wagon... But like someone else pointed out we have no PG or SF to offer in a deal unless we are looking to trade Green or Pierce and I dont see that happening.
