Phoenix Suns — Trading Away Isaiah Thomas
In the summer of 2014, the Phoenix Suns acquired diminutive guard Isaiah Thomas from the Sacramento Kings, and looked like he could be a sparkplug sixth-man for the Suns, averaging 15.2 points per game.
But less than a year after acquiring him, the Suns traded him to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Marcus Thornton and a first round pick in 2016.
Thomas eventually named Sixth Man of the Year in 2015, and then averaged 28.9 points per game and challenged for a league MVP award the following season. He’s yet another example of lousy personnel moves made by the Suns over the past two decades.
