The Utah Jazz should go after Devin Booker if he ends up on the trade block

The Phoenix Suns are not looking good this NBA postseason. They're down 0-2 to the far superior Minnesota Timberwolves and went all in on Bradley Beal, who has not produced like they had hoped. Cash-strapped and lacking draft picks, a quick exit will force the Suns to make some big moves to try and rebound. Though, a rebound may not be possible.

If the Suns lose early, they may look to blow things up, whether that's a full rebuild or an expedited one, it's likely that the team opts to move on from some guys. Bill Simmons, a famed NBA commentator, has an idea in mind for moving on from the Suns.

He suggested C.J. McCollum, Trey Murphy, and two "future picks" for Booker. While Murphy is a promising player, I don't see his ceiling being huge, nor do I think McCollum at this stage in his career is a fair one-to-one for Booker.

The Suns are losing this proposed trade.

That's what makes me think the Utah Jazz would be able to build a perfect package for the Suns shooting guard. The Utah Jazz could put together a much more impressive package, with Keyonte George, Brice Sensabaugh, John Collins, Omer Yurtseven, and three first-round draft picks.

I'd be willing to put Collin Sexton on the list of trade prospects as well, or Taylor Hendricks if need be. Booker would elevate the offense and help unlock Lauri Markkanen's scoring potential. The duo would be hard to stop but Booker isn't much of a defender, so you'd want to build the team out focusing on that element.

That's why Kris Dunn and Walker Kessler can't be moved in this trade. You're going to need defense, and if you trade either or both then the Jazz's potential to win goes down dramatically.
