Gortat has been on the trade block since the Suns drafted Alex Len with 5th pick in June's draft.
Okafor will likely miss most of the season after discovering a herniated disc in his neck. Okafor averaged 9.7 ppg, 8.8 rpg, and 1.0 bpg. The addition of the 1st-round pick now gives the Suns four 1st-round picks in next year's draft, which includes many highly coveted prospects.
The Suns are also looking to sign G Eric Bledsoe to a long term contract. Other sources expect that the Suns are not stopping there, and will look to ship starting point guard Goran Dragić for more picks.
