Heavy.com’s Sean Deveney reported earlier this week that a Western Conference executive could see the Lakers trade Anthony Davis to the Suns for a package that includes Deandre Ayton and Cam Johnson.

“Phoenix would also be an interesting fit, once Ayton can be traded,” the exec said, according to Deveney. “They could do Cam Johnson and Ayton, something like that. I’m sure some in LA would expect a big comeback for Davis, but with the injuries of the past few years, it would be difficult to trade him. There are plenty of reasons why they would keep him, but this is one – you won’t get fair value because of injuries.
