The Phoenix Suns need a dynamic forward to replace Amare Stoudemire, and they may be able to find one in the 2011 NBA Draft.

Just not at pick #13.

Sources say Washington & Phoenix have been the most active teams trying to trade up for Derrick Williams. T'Wolves want a "veteran big man."less than a minute ago via UberSocial Favorite Retweet Reply

The Minnesota Timberwolves, as we know, hold the rights to the second pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. Taking Williams for themselves would make sense, except for the fact that they really don't need another forward. Seeking a trade makes sense on multiple levels.

Enter the Suns.

Admittedly it seems like a long shot. If the T'Wolves are after a "veteran big man" as the tweet suggests, the Suns are not necessarily a viable option.

With only Robin Lopez, Channing Frye or Marcin Gortat to offer, the Suns would seem to be short on assets? After all, would Lopez or Frye really interest Minnesota? Would the Suns be willing to put together a package of say Gortat and a pick for the right to draft Williams?

There is no doubt Williams would be a good fit in Phoenix, but that could also be said of a lot of teams. The Suns owe it to themselves to look into the idea, but at this point it's hard to see a deal being consummated that would keep the UA star in Arizona.

Then again, as long as David Kahn is running the show in Minnesota anything is possible.
