Phoenix Suns general manager James Jones has been a busy man this offseason, and part of that activity saw him trade away TJ Warren and Josh Jackson.
Jones chalked it up to the team just growing, and maturing.
“It’s just the maturation of a team,” Jones said, according to Kellan Olson of Arizona Sports 98.7 Radio. “When we looked at our team, we knew our two young building blocks were Devin (Booker) and Deandre (Ayton) and so every move we made after that was really to add guys that would complement and help them become better players.
Jones praised the players, with Warren likely the most deserving of the praise, and wished both the best in the future.
“The guys that we moved on from are great players, they’re great talents — we wish them the best. But when you’re building a team you have to make tough decisions so we made decisions that we thought would help us and (added) proven guys that would help us.”
