The rumors are swirling as the NBA Draft approaches, and given that this class is not as well-regarded as others, it makes sense that teams might be looking to make some moves.
One such team could be the Phoenix Suns, who currently hold picks five and 30 in the first round. According to Fox Sports NBA columnist Sam Amico, they are the team most likely to move a lottery pick.
And, where might the Suns be sending it?
Maybe. Best shot appears to be to Suns at 5. RT @OhDee92: Will Minny move up from the 9th spot?

The Timberwolves are supposedly “enamored” with Indiana’s Victor Oladipo, and according to ESPN.com, are looking to package picks nine and 26 — along with forward Derrick Williams — in an effort to move up to get their guy.
Williams, who was the second overall selection out of Arizona in 2011, averaged 12 points and 5.5 rebounds per game for Minnesota last season.
