Suns Interested In Jahlil Okafor

Published

The Phoenix Suns may not be done on the trade market just yet.

A day after sending disgruntled point guard Eric Bledsoe to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for Greg Monroe and a pair of draft picks, the Suns are already targeting another trade.

The Suns have expressed interest in Philadelphia 76ers big man Jahlil Okafor, according to  ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Monroe isn’t likely to stay in Phoenix long and the Suns are looking to deal center Tyson Chandler which would leave them with only Alex Len at center.

Okafor has requested a trade or buyout from Philadelphia but the team has not been in a rush to get anything done.

Okafor has drawn interest from the Chicago Bulls, Boston Celtics and the Atlanta Hawks.

Milwaukee could also be in the mix with the loss of Monroe.

Washington Wizards’ guard Isaiah Thomas is looking to find a permanent home as he gets his career back on track.

Thomas is currently on a one-year minimum contract with the Wizards, and while he didn’t rule out a long-term deal with Washington, he did state his goal is on this long-term future.

“I want to be somewhere I can be three or four years,” Thomas said, according to Fred Katz of The Athletic.

“I was in Sacramento for three years. I was in Boston for three years. Even though that’s not a long time, I was comfortable there. My family was able to build relationships with people around the organization, people around the city. It just made things easier. So, what I am looking for — obviously, I want to get paid the most I possibly can, because I feel like I deserve that, but I also want to be able to be somewhere for a while.”

Thomas is averaging 13.2 points and 6.2 assists per game for the Wizards this season.
