The Suns are reportedly interested in trading for Jahlil Okafor.
The Suns have interest in Okafor who has been buried on the depth chart for the Sixers and has asked to be traded. Before a deal can be made the Suns still need to figure out what they are going to do with recent acquisition Greg Monroe. They view Monroe’s expiring contract as a trade piece in the market, but they could also buy out the big man thus opening up a roster spot that they can fill with Okafor. If the Suns were able to land Okafor then he would be hard pressed to find minutes right away behind Tyson Chandler and Alex Len, but he could get more of a look later in the year if Chandler gets shut down again or traded. The Bulls and Hawks also have interest and would be better landing spots for his immediate fantasy value.
