Bogdanovic has been in the middle of trade speculations with the Pistons for months as the Pistons are rebuilding right now and looking to accommodate future picks to build their team up in the future. Bogdanovic is having a season with the Pistons as he is averaging 21.1 PPG on 48% shooting from the floor while shooting 42% from three-point range.
It’s clear as day, the Suns are eyeing a playoff-caliber player in return for Jae Crowder as well as a player that can help take pressure off of Devin Booker when he comes back from injury. With the Suns already being interested in Washington Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma, the Suns are looking for that 20-point PPG scorer who can create his own shot and open up the offense even more. In his last game, he dropped 29 points on 5 threes against the defending champion Golden State Warriors in a last-second win.
The trade deadline is set on February 9th and the clock is ticking for the Suns to make a move to not only salvage their season but to be a force in the Western Conference when they get healthy.
