Jaren Jackson Jr. went through a workout with the Suns on Sunday.

"One of the more underrated players in this draft in my opinion. Really shot the ball well in this workout," said Suns' GM Ryan McDonough. "He was really really impressive today." Most reporting suggests that the Suns will be going with Deandre Ayton with the No. 1 overall pick, and McDonough acknowledged on Sunday that it's unlikely Phoenix will trade down. Jackson Jr. is an impressive athlete with a nice shooting touch for a big, and he's projected to go within the top-3 on draft day.

Aaron Holiday had his second workout with the Suns on Thursday.

With the Suns almost certainly taking DeAndre Ayton at No. 1, general manager Ryan McDonough has hinted the Suns will likely look for help at guard at No. 16. Holiday is a defense-first point guard, which the Suns desperately need after ranking dead last in defense last season and in the bottom five in each of the last three. Holiday could possibly compete with Tyler Ulis for the starting job.

The Suns are reportedly prepared to offer Clint Capela "a max or near-max contract" once free agency begins this offseason.

Capela will be a restricted free agent this offseason, and Houston will most likely be matching any offer he receives on the open market, as owner Tilman Fertita has already said he's more than willing to go into the luxury tax to keep Chris Paul, Trevor Ariza, James Harden and Capela together. Capela has been lighting it up through the playoffs thus far with averages of 14.4 points, 12.2 rebounds and 2.8 swats per contest, so he'll assuredly be getting paid this summer.

The Suns have reportedly spoken with Jason Kidd and Vinny Del Negro regarding their open head coaching position.

The Suns are still in the early stages of their coaching search, and there are sure to be more names added to the list. Kidd has been an unfavorable coach in terms of fantasy hoops in the past with his wonky rotations, so the Rotoworld staff would be pleased if he didn't land this particular gig.
Apr 23 - 4:31 PM

The Suns reportedly plan to sign Isaiah Canaan under the injury hardship exception.

Canaan would help provide some depth at the guard spots with Phoenix so banged up, but it's unlikely he'd have much value in 12-team leagues, particularly with how inconsistent Jay Triano has been with the rotations.

The Bulls are reportedly "still intrigued" by Jahlil Okafor's talent, but are hesitant to "give up anything of significance" to acquire him.

According to Bulls writer Carlos Douglas Jr., the team "might just wait until the summer of 2018 to pursue him" in free agency. The Suns were also linked to Okafor in early November, but first they'd need to buy out or trade Greg Monroe. Atlanta and New York have also been rumored as possible landing spots, but there's no clear traction in any of these scenarios.

The Suns are reportedly interested in Jahlil Okafor.

The Suns are looking to open a roster spot by moving or buying out Greg Monroe, and they'd reportedly like to fill that hole with Okafor. However, if they aren't able to move Tyson Chandler or Alex Len prior to acquiring Okafor, he wouldn't really be in a much better situation in Phoenix than the one he's currently in in Philadelphia. The Bulls and Hawks are also rumored to be interested in Okafor, and they'd be a much better spot for him in terms of fantasy hoops.

The Bulls and the Hawks are reportedly the most likely landing spots for Jahlil Okafor.

These are some of the few teams that would make sense for Okafor, but thus far, they haven't come forth with an enticing offer for Philly, as the 76ers would like to secure a draft pick in any deal sending away the former No. 3 overall selection. Phoenix and New York have also been rumored to have interest in Okafor, but those teams are already loaded in their frontcourt and it's tough to see a deal going through where the numbers would work.

Suns waive F Elijah Millsap.

The 30-year-old played two seasons with the Jazz from 2014-16, but he appeared in just two games for the Suns last year. Whether he's playing overseas or in the G-League, it would take a series of events to propel him to fantasy relevance.
