The Suns get rid of the logjam at guards, and get a backup big in return who can rebound and play defense and take the minutes left open by the departure of Kurt Thomas.
Phoenix needs to trade an asset along with Banks to get rid of him. He has negative value. Detroit just drafted a backup guard, why would they want Banks taking minutes away?
I'm not sure Phoenix would want Mohammad either.
