On Tuesday, Phoenix Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said it's likely the team will look to make deals before the NBA's Feb. 18 trade deadline.

One of the Suns' potential trade partners could hail from the Great White North, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

On Wednesday, Stein reported the Toronto Raptors, who beat the Suns on Tuesday night in Phoenix, are interested in a pair of Phoenix forwards.

Stein says not to expect the Suns to make such a trade without seeking something significant in return.

Morris, who famously did not get along with former Suns coach Jeff Hornacek, had season highs in points (30), rebounds (11) and assists (six) Tuesday night in interim coach Earl Watson's debut. He has averaged 10.8 points and 5.1 rebounds in what is his fifth NBA season.

Tucker, who is known for his defense, is averaging 6.8 points and 5.7 rebounds per game this season. He was the Raptors' second-round draft pick in 2006.
