In case you missed it: The Suns traded away Deandre Ayton and rookie Toumani Camara to the Portland Trail Blazers in exchange for Jusuf Nurkić, Grayson Allen, Nassir Little and Keon Johnson. This is part of a bigger trade in which Damian Lillard went to the Bucks and Jrue Holiday went to the Blazers.

Nurkić first said goodbye to the Blazer faithful. The 29-year-old had played in Portland since the 2016-17 season.

He then posted a picture of the infamous “Suns in Four” fan about heading to Phoenix. He added that he is “super EXCITED for my next chapter.”

Allen angered a lot of Bucks fans with his first post. He quote tweeted a post in which he said “Bucks fans this is the last number change I promise” with “lol.” Allen had spent the last two seasons in Milwaukee. 

Little posted a long thank you letter to Blazers’ fans starting off by saying: “Portland, I write this with tears in my eyes.” He was drafted 25th overall by Portland in 2019 and spent his whole career with the Blazers.

Johnson was traded to Portland his rookie year in the 2021-22 season. He thanked the Blazers in a heartfelt post on Instagram after 1.5 years with Portland.

Suns fans – what do you think of the trade?
