With the regular season underway, NBA teams are ready to make their claim for the top spot after acquiring top college prospects for the team, including some of the big trades of this season.

For the Suns, the free agency resulted in the acquisition of Toumani Camara, now a Portland Trail Blazers player, Trey Jemison, Marcus Carr, and Grant Sherfield on a Summer League contract.

With discussions over every team's strategy for the upcoming 2024 Free Agency ongoing, an action against the Suns has recently been taken in relation to a violation committed against the NBA law.

As per investigations, Pheonix Suns are said to have been engaged with its 2023 draft prospect Drew Eubanks under negotiation discussion prior to its acquisition of the team as an act of violation.

Following the investigation reports, the league later released a statement on Wednesday, penalizing the Phoenix Suns by taking away their second-round pick rights from the upcoming 2024 NBA Draft.

The statement read, "The NBA announced today that the Suns violated league rules governing the timing of this season's free agency discussions and that the league has rescinded its 2024 draft pick."

After going undrafted by the NBA in 2018 and being part of two franchises previously, Pheonix Suns center and power forward Drew Eubanks is currently averaging 6.6 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.
