The latest news from NBA! The sun is close to getting the hornet demon wing. Can Paul’s dream of championship be realized? Dry goods sharing

With less than a month to go before the trade deadline, NBA teams began to intensify negotiations to strengthen. In addition to the Lakers, the Knicks and the Pistons, there is another team that is deeply involved in the transaction. That is the Phoenix Suns, currently ranked eighth in the West. This season, the Suns have only one player who has never played, that is 32-year-old Jay Claude. After applying to the Sun for a deal during the off-season period, Claude refused to play for the team with a high exemption card, and even completed daily training independently rather than following the team. The Suns have been trying to exchange Claude’s contract for some reinforcement assets since the off-season, but Claude’s refusal to play has made many teams unwilling to pay a high price.

According to incomplete statistics, the Sun has negotiated with eight teams about Claude since the off-season, but none of them has been completed. On the one hand, Claude is the starting flank of the last two seasons. The Sun is not willing to lose a starting player in vain, which causes the lineup to decline. The high return requirements bring more difficulties to this transaction. On the other hand, Claude’s contract has another season to expire, which makes the next team only willing to pay a smaller price. Objectively speaking, although Claude is 32 years old, he still brings a lot of energy on the court. As the toughest flank player in the league, Claude can not only defend players in all positions, but also have a good three-point ability. In today’s small ball worship, it is needless to say the value of a player with full 3D flank attributes.

After the introduction of Paul, together with the growth of Booker, Aton and Briggs, the Suns gradually became a strong team in the league and reached the final in the 20-21 season. However, after losing the championship to the Bucks in 21 years, the Sun began to decline gradually. Paul was injured early this season, and he was in normal condition after his recovery. Now Booker has also been injured and rested, and the Sun ranks only eighth in the West. In this case, Claude has become the last straw for the sun to strengthen. Earlier today, according to the famous NBA reporter Shams Chania, the Suns and the Hornets had in-depth exchanges on Claude’s trade for Jay McDaniels.

Jack McDaniels is one of the important rotation players of the Hornets. Daniels’ average playing time doubled after Briggs failed to play this year, and he gave a good answer. The average score per game was 10.9 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.6 blocks. The three-point shooting rate reached 35.2%, and the free throw shooting rate was even higher than 87%. There is no doubt that McDaniels, who is only 24 years old this year, has the potential to grow into a top 3D player. With a height of 2.06 meters, an arm span of 2.14 meters, and good defensive awareness and outside shooting ability, he will form a young front combination with Briggs. Do fans think Michael Daniels can help Paul achieve the championship? Welcome to discuss and exchange in the comment area!
