The Phoenix Suns made the Finals in 2021 under Devin Booker's leadership, and it is clear that their priority is to win immediately. Devin Booker has shown the ability to play at an MVP level when healthy, and it is imperative that the team make some moves to build around him.
A recent report from Michael Scotto of HoopsHype revealed that the Phoenix Suns are interested in a pair of Utah Jazz players, Malik Beasley and Jarred Vanderbilt. Both players would be able to contribute immediately and provide instant value for the Suns in a playoff run.
Beasley – an Atlanta native – and Vanderbilt were most notably mentioned together in multi-team trade discussions for Hawks forward John Collins earlier this season. The Suns have also expressed interest in trading for the duo.
It remains to be seen if the Phoenix Suns do end up acquiring Beasley and Vanderbilt, but it is clear that the duo would be a good fit for them. Malik Beasley would bring an element of shot creation and floor spacing, while Jarred Vanderbilt is a great multi-positional defender and great rebounder. Both players would be great acquisitions if the Suns can avoid overpaying for their services.
