The Phoenix Suns are being viewed as potential key players in facilitating two high-profile trades involving Damian Lillard and James Harden.
Both superstars have expressed their desire to be traded, with Lillard eyeing the Miami Heat and Harden setting his sights on the Los Angeles Clippers.
Recent reports from Gerald Bourguet of PHNX suggest that multiple teams, including the Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat, Portland Trail Blazers, Toronto Raptors, and Chicago Bulls, are engaged in heated trade discussions.
Reportedly, some of these teams see the Suns as a valuable third party that could help push a blockbuster deal across the finish line.
While the Suns may lack the assets or contracts to execute these trades themselves, sources have referred to them as a “mystery team” and a “dark horse” in these negotiations.
