06:35 PM ET 02.14 | The Phoenix Suns are going nowhere quickly, and hopefully the Suns front office will work their behinds off to change that for the sake of the franchise and Planet Orange. According to a report by ESPN's insider Chris Broussard, the top three Phoenix Suns players with the most interest from other teams are Markieff Morris, Jared Dudley and Marcin Gortat. Here's what Broussard wrote in his article earlier today: "Phoenix is also among the most active teams in terms of talk. In addition to speaking with the Knicks about a possible Jared Dudley-for-Iman Shumpert trade, the Suns have spoken with Utah about Al Jefferson. Those talks haven't gained much traction, though. Clubs calling the Suns have been mostly interested in Dudley, Marcin Gortat and Markieff Morris." It's not a complete surprise that teams are interested in Jared Dudley, Marcin Gortat and Markieff Morris. Dudley is one of the better shooters in the NBA, and his basketball IQ along with his toughness could be of good value to any team. From my understanding, the Suns are hesitant to trade Dudley unless they are going to get solid value in return because Dudley's role on the Suns extends beyond the hardwood into the lock room and ultimately into the Phoenix community.

Gortat would be a good role player for the Lakers.

It's a painful time to be a Suns fan.
