Suns fans had a lot happen for their team yesterday in regard to former and current players. They saw former point guard Chris Paul leave the Wizards to go to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for Jordan Poole and future picks.

They also saw their team draft Dayton forward Toumani Camara as the number 52 pick in the NBA draft who will most likely be one of the last picks for the Phoenix Suns in a long time thanks to the Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal trades.

One of the things that was a big what if however is the fact that the Suns could’ve had former Warriors guard Jordan Poole but elected to stay put and get a better player in Bradley Beal according to John Gambadaro of 95.7.

According to Gambadaro’s tweet, the Suns could’ve traded for Poole, but they deemed Bradley Beal a better player/fit for what they wanted to do.

It’s no shock that Poole was traded from Golden State. Especially after what happened to Poole and Warriors star forward Draymond Green in an incident that was heard all around the world.

In regards to the Suns’ side of things, they have now formed a big three in Devin Booker, Durant, and Beal that will make them one of the most talked about and one of the favorites to come out of the Western Conference in hopes of winning an NBA championship.
