Even though the Suns were loaded at guard (with fellow Wildcats), the move comes as a surprise after Archie's strong play this preseason. Through six preseason games, he averaged 5.7 points and made headlines with this insane game-winning dunk vs. Trey Lyles and the Jazz: Archie was drafted by the Thunder in 2013, but was quickly traded to the Suns, where he's been ever since. Through three seasons, he's averaged 6.2 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 14.5 minutes per game. With his explosiveness and ability to get to the basket, Archie will find a spot on another roster soon, but man, there goes the novelty All-UK lineup we've been dreaming of seeing in Phoenix this season. Burr on 'em, Archie.
