It's pretty win-win; PHX gains some assets, Doan gets a chance at a Cup, doesn't have to move his family if it's only for few months.
That may be a remote possibility, but knowing that there is no chance at re-signing Doan, I doubt that he would be worth much in a trade scenario. And sir if you want me to contemplate about my team not making the playoffs, you are not going to get on my good side...
