The Phoenix Suns hit the jackpot when Devin Booker fell to them in the 2015 NBA draft. Book’s scintillating game and Kobe-like devotion provided hope to a team bereft of a franchise-altering talent in the post-Nash era.

In a series of moves that will ultimately save the organization $8 million in salary and luxury taxes, the Nets traded Sekou Doumbouya and a second round pick in 2004 to the Rockets, then agreed to deal the rights to long-time stash Juan Pablo Vaulet to the Pacers in return for Edmond Sumner and a 2025 Heat second rounder.
