Gold Coast Suns list manager Craig Cameron has shared an update on in-demand pair Mabior Chol and Elijah Hollands after discussions with both players potentially being traded to rival clubs.

With Damien Hardwick announced as the new coach of the Gold Coast Suns, the club is hard at work to provide the best list in the hopes that Hardwick can lead the young group to their first-ever AFL finals appearance.

The former Tiger in Chol hasn't been able to receive as many opportunities at the senior level this season in comparison to his first year at the Suns, only featuring in eight games in 2023. Whilst he didn't feature in the main side, Chol played a crucial role in the Suns' VFL success with their grand final win over Werribee in September.

Cameron spoke on AFL Trade Radio on Wednesday, offering his transparency to the players stating that if they wish to test the market, they are more than free to do so.

"Mabior came to us two years ago, he was really good in his first year, but had much less opportunity this year and the feeling is with the way the forward line will be structured with Ben King now, and Jake Lukosius being successful in the forward half, and with the likelihood of Levi Casboult going on and two young talls coming through the draft, that the opportunities for Mabior will be limited," Cameron said.

"We had a conversation between Mabior and his management, and in that conversation, we said to him if he was interested he could have a look to continue his career elsewhere and that we would be open to it. At this stage he doesn't want to be stockpiled, we were open to it and he was open to it, that's the process that is going on at the moment.

"We have got no offers for him at the moment."

The situation around the seventh pick from 2020's draft in Hollands, who has been linked to Carlton, is merely the same, with Cameron again offering the chance for him to explore his options.

Cameron also spoke about how gaining future picks if they were to trade him would be beneficial with their incoming Academy players.

"We got nothing concrete at the moment from anywhere, again, we had an open conversation with Elijah saying to him if he wanted to explore, we are open to it," Cameron stated.

"I think so (gaining future picks from trading), we can use pick four in a way that will allow us to get enough points for this year. With any of the players we may trade out, if we can get some future collateral, that would be good."

Multiple clubs including Richmond are believed to be chasing the Sun's top selction of Pick 4 after reports revealed that Gold Coast is open to potentially using it as a trade asset.
