REPORT: Phoenix Suns Are Trying To Trade Up To Draft Lonzo Ball
We’re just a few days away from the NBA Draft and the Phoenix Suns are trying to shake things up.
Phoenix currently owns the No. 4 pick, but according to ESPN’s Chad Ford, they had multiple trade discussions with both the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics to move up in this week’s draft and take Lonzo Ball.

Should this happen, the Suns would bolster one of the top back-courts in the entire league, as Ball would be paired up with Devin Booker, who dropped 70 points in a game earlier this year.
Current starter Eric Bledsoe averaged 21.1 points, 6.3 assists, 4.8 rebounds, and 1.4 steals, but has just two years left on his contract entering next season.
