Phoenix Suns Move Up to Nab Archie Goodwin at End of Round

The Suns apparently liked Kentucky freshman guard Archie Goodwin so much, they couldn't wait to get him. The Suns moved up one spot to nab Goodwin late in the first round of the 2013 NBA draft on Thursday, swapping the 30th and final pick of the first round for the No. 29 pick belonging to the Golden State Warriors. The trade had not been officially cleared by the NBA as of press time, and no other trade details, such as further compensation, were available. The Suns received the 30th pick from the Lakers as part of the trade that sent franchise icon Steve Nash to Los Angeles. Had the Lakers missed the playoffs, that pick would have become a lottery selection. The 29th pick went through several hands as well. Golden State originally traded with Minnesota to get the 26th pick, but then shipped that selection to Oklahoma City for the right to pick 29th before swapping picks with Phoenix.
