The Phoenix Suns heard that the Utah Jazz are trading away their stars and they have come knocking.
Phoenix is eager to build a stronger team so they can return to the NBA Finals after a truly disappointing 2021-22 postseason.
And they will need to bolster their bench if they want to do that.
REPORT: The Phoenix Suns have interest in trading for Bojan Bogdanović.

The team apparently has its eye on Bojan Bogdanovic, currently of the Jazz.
In fact, the Suns reportedly reached out to the Jazz about the 33-year-old after Utah made their trade of Donovan Mitchell to the Cleveland Cavaliers official.
It’s obvious the Jazz are in rebuilding mode and the Suns want to take advantage of that.
Bye Bye, Bojan
At this point, it wouldn’t be shocking to see Bogdanovic leave the Jazz.
The team is obviously willing to hear proposals from any team about any player.
In fact, he likely wouldn’t be the last Suns player to be sent away during the offseason.
Bogdanovic has been in the league for eight years and has averaged 15 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.6 assists a game during that time.
His 869 three-pointers over the last five years make him the 10th-best three-point shooter in the league and his 38.7% from beyond the arc last season only makes him more tantalizing to the Suns.
Phoenix hasn’t done much this offseason.
After their quest to land Kevin Durant fell apart, they instead spent their time re-signing Deandre Ayton and planning a path forward with the squad they have now.
This would likely be their last play of the summer.
A move for Bogdanovic wouldn’t be earth-shattering but it would give the team a bit more of a boost.
