The Phoenix Suns are this year's sleeper free agency team. They are off to a good start, selecting Deandre Ayton with the first pick in the draft. Recently they've made some smaller moves that could lead to a much bigger one.


The Sun reportedly will not bring back Elfrid Payton and Alex Len for the upcoming season.

Both players had decent seasons at best for the Suns, but with Brandon Knight and Deandre Ayton on the roster, their value has diminished.


This also opens up about $10M in cap space for the Suns, who can sign a good veteran to help the young team's growth. Don't forget that aside from Devin Booker, Ayton, and Knight, the Suns also have Josh Jackson, TJ Warren and Mikal Bridges. Oh, and they drafted Elie Okobo too.

One great free agent -- if willing to go to Phoenix -- could turn this team into a legitimate threat in the Western Conference.


There are a lot of big names on the market this offseason. Don't be surprised if the Suns come out aggressive next week.
