The Phoenix Suns have held trade talks centered on forwards Josh Jackson and T.J. Warren, as well as the No. 6 draft pick, according to Shams Charania of Stadium.
New Suns general manager James Jones is on the lookout for a point guard and the Suns may be looking to move up in the draft to acquire one. They will also most definitely explore veteran point guards in free agency.
Jackson, 22, was the No. 4 overall pick in 2017. He averaged 11.5 points and 4.4 rebounds this past season — down from his rookie averages the previous season.
Jackson was arrested in early May after fleeing from police offices at a Florida music festival.
Warren, 25, was the No. 14 overall pick in 2014. Injuries limited him to 43 games this past season, when he averaged 18.0 points and 4.0 rebounds.
There has been conflicting information on if the Suns are looking to move up to take Vanderbilt point guard Darius Garland. The NBA draft is Thursday.
