Makings of a Bulls-Suns trade
It's no secret around Phoenix that Shawn Marion is unhappy with his situation and wouldn't mind going elsewhere. He could be a fit for the Bulls. The key for Phoenix probably would be Ben Gordon. And Phoenix has always liked Andres Nocioni, who could play the forward positions Marion played. The Bulls could make that kind of deal -- maybe they throw in Chris Duhon, a backup point the Suns need -- without giving up their first-round pick (No. 9 overall).
Having Ben Gordon as a Sun would be great. I think he would fit in well into D'Antoni's system. He's obviously a great scorer and him together with Nocioni going to Phoenix would give Nash that many more options while running the break. Or give a solid backup in Chris Duhon who's skills could prosper under Nash's tutelage. When Steve Nash goes to retire, Duhon could step into the starting role. The only problem is that someone would have to become a small forward out of Bell, Barbosa, and Gordon. Also, if Nocioni is traded it would put him into a tough situation trying to play the 4. But picture this for next year: Nash, Duhon/Nocioni, Bell, Barbosa, Gordon, Amare. EYES ON THE PRIZE!
