There had to be some uncertainty for Phoenix Suns rookie Josh Jackson over the last few weeks.

Once news broke that Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving was requesting a trade from the Cavs, the Suns emerged as a potential landing spot for the All-Star.

Any theoretical Suns-Cavs trade centered around Irving was also going to involve Jackson, this years No. 4 pick in the NBA Draft, heading to Cleveland.

Jackson recently sat down with SiriusXM NBA Radio to discuss the situation.

He was first asked if he was renting in Cleveland.

I think if that was going to happen, it wouldve happened by now, Jackson said. A little talking to my agent, not really checking social media, because thatt not the way to go. People just say whatever. I handled it the same way I tried to handle Draft Night. Coming in, I didnt know what was going to happen, I still dont know what is going to happen. Im going to make the most of whatever situation Im presented with. If Im traded to China, whatever, Im gonna come out, Im gonna be happy, just try to make the best of it.

I was kind of in the dark a little bit. But I got a feeling that the trade wasnt going to happen.
