Rumor: Phoenix Suns looking to trade up to top pick, draft Nerlens Noel
The latest comes from ESPN NBA insider Chad Ford, and it's a doozy for the Phoenix Suns.
Hearing Suns are offering Cavs 5 & 30 for 1. Not yet known how Cavs view the offer. Suns after Noel.— Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) June 27, 2013
Interestingly the Suns were never reported to have brought Noel in for a visit, and with the center coming off a torn ACL his status for the 2013-14 season is very much up in the air.
However, he is regarded to be possibly the best player in this draft, and when healthy is expected to be an excellent defender in the NBA.
