Nah I agree that this move would make the Suns worse - making a team worse of course doesn't rely on player quality, just team playing style and versatility. I do actually think Marion is the better player, and this trade would make the Suns worse, they would lose out on shooting, help D (although AK is just MarionX2 on D), fast breaks and rebounds. Utah would definitely be bettering themselves with this move and if AK is definitely out, this move is ideal.
