Gortat for Derrick Williams? 10 reasons for pulling the trigger

Though it may be difficult to believe sometimes, I am a Phoenix Suns fan. I grew up watching the team and would like nothing more than to see someone wearing purple and orange hoist the Larry O’Brien Trophy.

It is for those reasons why I have been frustrated with the moves they’ve made over the last seven few years. Watching a team that was so close to a title fall short, largely because of self-inflicted wounds, has not been easy to take.

Back in the lottery, the Suns are rumored to be interested in trading up to the No. 2 spot, securing Derrick Williams while parting with Marcin Gortat.

At first glance I agreed with my colleague Espo, who says the team can’t afford to trade Gortat. The move would have the appearance of a classic ‘Bad Suns’ move, a foolish trade that would set the team back. Thinking about it a little more, though, I decided the trade wouldn’t be such a bad idea after all. In fact, I’m all for it.
