1. Suns give Frank Kaminsky, Tyler Johnson, Dario Saric, Cam Johnson and 1st-round picks.
The trade proposal comes from the Ringer’s Paolo Uggettii, who believes Phoenix can’t squander its surprise start by ending up back in the lottery.
Saric would be plugged into Love’s spot in the lineup, although he’s not as good a player. He’s averaging 11.1 points and 7.2 rebounds per game while shooting 33.9 percent from 3-point range.
Saric can contribute, but Cam Johnson is exciting player here. He was just taken 11th in the draft and the 6-8 forward is averaging 9.2 points per game while shooting 40 percent from 3-point range.
He’s playing just a tick over 20 minutes per game, so there’s a lot more to explore with this UNC product.
Again, Johnson’s size is intriguing because the Cavs need bodies like his. As we’re often reminded when LeBron leaves town, guys who are 6-foot-8 don’t grow on trees. This isn’t saying they’re anything close to the same player, rather, well, JaMario Moon anybody?
As for the first-round picks, I wonder how many Cleveland will be able to pry away?
Ultimatley, Phoenix has an exciting young player who can be a building block, as well as draft picks. This is something the Cavs should be looking at, if they’re not already.
