5 NBA Trades That Make Sense This Summer
PHOENIX: If Phoenix starts the season off on the wrong note, I think we could see them be one of the more active teams on the trade market. Although trading Bledsoe or Knight to make room for Devin Booker will probably be the hottest rumor, trading the aging Tyson Chandler shouldn’t be off the table.
With Chandler making over $12 million a year and Alex Len sitting in the shadows, getting off the last three years of Chandler’s deal would be big.
Aminu would would come in right away and start at the small forward spot. He would give Phoenix a wing defender that could go up against some of the best in the league. Plumlee and Davis would give the Suns backup big men who could provide center minutes behind Len.
PORTLAND: For the Blazers, this would be all about getting a veteran anchor that could help them in the playoffs. Although he is on the backend of his career, Chandler could be the missing veteran, big man presence that Portland is missing.
Aminu will be missed, but they just handed out huge money to Evan Turner while signing Moe Harkless and Meyers Leonard to big extensions.
They would still get Tucker in the deal that could help offset some minutes at the three or four.
