The NBA Draft is underway, and though the Suns are set to pick at No. 13, it appears they’re not content to just sit around and wait.
The Suns remain in aggressive pursuit of a move up in the draft, presumably targeting Frank Kaminsky, league sources tell Yahoo.

First trade of the night could involve Charlotte with the 9th pick, sources say. Phoenix and Boston have been actively trying to move up.

It has been widely reported the Suns have interest in Kaminsky, the 2015 Naismith College Player of the Year who also won the John R. Wooden and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Center of the Year awards, though as ESPN NBA insider Chard Ford reported Thursday, odds were he would not be available at the 13th pick.
