Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders is reporting that the Suns asked the Knicks for rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina and sophomore big man Willy Hernangomez in a potential Eric Bledsoe trade.
The other rumored package out there comes from Denver and involves Emmanuel Mudiay, so this would be a little bit of a step up depending on how you view Ntilikina as a long-term prospect. The Knicks probably won’t pull the trigger on this one since their GM named both Ntilikina and Hernangomez as part of the core going forward. Hopefully that means the team will actually put Hernangomez in the rotation, but we digress. Expect more rumors and names to start flying until Phoenix bites the bullet and trades their star guard.
