The Phoenix Suns have been trying to bring in Oklahoma guard Trae Young for a dinner and workout, but scheduling has made it difficult, according to a report from Bleacher Report.
The Suns own the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, but could be looking to add a second top-10 pick. They have the 16th pick in the draft and would likely need to trade that, their protected Miami Heat pick and maybe a rotational player to move up.
Young and the Suns will likely have a meeting take place at some point before the draft, which is June 21.
The scoring guard averaged 27.4 points and 8.7 assists for Oklahoma as a freshman, shooting 42.2 percent from the field and 36.0 percent from beyond the arc. He was named Big 12 Freshman of the Year.
Phoenix is widely expected to select Arizona’s Deandre Ayton with the first pick.
