The Suns have had interest in acquiring Al Jefferson or Gordon Hayward, according to the Arizona Republic.

The report states that Jared Dudley could be trade bait in a package for either player, but it's difficult to envision the Jazz seriously contemplating an offer for Jefferson built around Dudley or Marcin Gortat, whose contract would probably be needed in any potential deal to bring in Jefferson. Hayward, currently injured, is believed to be part of Utah's long-term plans, so we'll pass this along while noting that it appears unlikely anything will be done between the two parties at this time. Teams may not be interested in overpaying for Jefferson, an unrestricted free agent at season's end.
