Two separate moves that I like a lot for Phoenix.

Reports: Phoenix Suns trading for Hedo Turkoglu, Josh Childress


    The Phoenix Suns are responding to the free-agent departure of Amare Stoudemire with two trades, according to multiple media reports.

    The Arizona Republic reported on its website Sunday night that the Suns are acquiring Toronto's Hedo Turkoglu and former Atlanta swingman Josh Childress in separate transactions that will dramatically change the look of a team that made a surprising run to last season's Western Conference finals.

    The Suns, according to the Republic, have agreed to send guard Leandro Barbosa and forward Dwayne Jones to the Raptors for Turkoglu, who badly wants a move after a rough first season with Atlanta. The Raptors then plan to use the trade exception it created in their Chris Bosh sign-and-trade deal with Miami to acquire Boris Diaw from Charlotte, with Jones heading to the Bobcats.


I thought Turkoglu fared a lot better on an Orlando team that already had a starting, All-Star point guard and I think he'll be a lot happier playing for Phoenix. Childress is a guy that hasn't really reached his full potential yet and I think he'll thrive in the Phoenix system. I like both moves and I think this more than makes up for the Stoudemire departure.

I would gladly take a second round pick for Childress, who is of absolutely no use to the Hawks anymore, even if we had the financial flexibility to keep him. However, since the Hawks like to squander second round picks on unknown prospects from Europe, I'm not going to get too giddy about this trade just yet.

You do also get a trade exception of around $3 million, which you can use to pick up a player in a trade later even though you are over the cap...

I didn't think Phoenix could get any softer up front, and yet there they are. Teams with real centers and PFs should be able to dominate in the paint, unless Robin Lopez can assert himself for more than 20 minutes a game.

If any Phoenix fan is reading this, you are going to LOVE Turkoglu .... (cough).

If Hedo complained about the ball not going thru him in Toronto, wait till he gets to Phoenix... although Nash IS universally seen as unselfish and will try to get him involved.

The Bobcats were involved in this deal as a third party, but it looks like that part of the deal is dead


    The proposed three-way trade between the Toronto Raptors, Phoenix Suns and Charlotte Bobcatssending Toronto's Hedo Turkoglu to Phoenix is a two-team trade again, as the Bobcats have pulled out of the deal, according to NBA front-office sources.

    After the Raptors and Suns agreed Sunday to a trade that would send Turkoglu to Phoenix, Charlotte agreed Monday to join the deal by sending Boris Diaw and Tyson Chandler to Toronto in exchange for Jose Calderon and Reggie Evans.

    Sources close to the situation said Tuesday that two main factors led the Bobcats to pull out: Calderon has a 10-percent trade bonus in his contract in addition to the $29 million remaining on the deal over the next three seasons; and Charlotte coach Larry Brown was never in favor of the trade.

    Yahoo! Sports reported Monday night that Bobcats owner Michael Jordan had "second thoughts" about adding Chandler to the trade, after both Chandler and Evans said publicly that they had been informed by their respective teams that the deal was going through.


No need to worry, Raps fans. No one will be taking Jose Calderon off your hands anytime soon.

And now Chandler is going to Dallas. Story: http://sports.espn.go.com/dallas/nba/news/story?id=5377055

Basically: Dallas gets Tyson Chandler and Alex Ajinca for Eduardo Najera, Matt Carroll and Erick Dampier's nonguaranteed $13 million nonguaranteed contract. Cuban also cuts a check (probably $3 million).

So, from my perspective, Dallas gets a serviceable part of the rotation (when healthy) and gains flexibility to make a trade during the season. And, if no trade is made, I believe Dallas will be under the salary cap for next season. Thank you, Michael Jordan.
