Default Phoenix's Top 5 Pick

Does anybody know whether or not Phoenix will trade their Top 5 Pick from Atlanta?

they seem to be against keeping players drafted in the lottery,if they would trade Luol for crap Im sure they would trade this pick as well

When you have 5 players likely entering the draft in Mayo, Beasley, Rose, Budinger and Gordon among others, you don't trade that pick without getting something really good.

It would be one of those situations where you look back and go "wow, that was Phoenix's pick. That team would have won a title with ___________".

Of course it depends on how Atlanta plays this season so if they trade the pick and Atlanta finishes in the low lottery it would look like a pretty smart move.

Who knows, Atlanta could, and i really stress the could, make the playoffs next year. At this point last year no one thought the Raptors would win their division, and to boot, the Hawks did win a bunch of games at the beginning of last season so watch out.

Among others is right, almost any lottery pick next year could yeild a gem. I'm not a fan of Kerr as a GM, but unless they win a championship this year(which is entirely possible), there is no way he can just stand pat with his starters again. Nash is getting old, and Bell, Marion, Diaw and Barbosa are all roleplayers. No championship this year equals a shake-up for the Suns which would probably include an injection of youth.

Who's to say it's top five? We haven't played a single game yet.

They would trade it if the right deal came along. Theres a good possibility it won't a top 5 pick. i'd say top 10 is a safer bet.

I would bet my last dollar that if the right deal comes along, the Suns will deal that pick.

I don't see them getting a top 5 pick next year anyway.
