The Phoenix Suns sent Raja Bell, Boris Diaw and rookie point guard Sean Singletary to the Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for their leading scorer Jason Richardson, small forward Jared Dudley and a 2010 second-round draft pick.

OK... anyone have any idea why the Bobcats would make this trade? Or am I severely underestimating Bell and Diaw?

Nope, as a Suns fan, I can tell you that Diaw will look great in about 1 out of 10 games (just enough to keep you thinking that he has turned the corned), and Bell is a defensive stopper who is living off his reputation and has been pouting about the new system and it costing him 3 point attempts.

Singletary has looked promising, but Charlotte has Felton and Augistin, so he won't get any time...

Well, the Bobcats aren't exactly known for their shrewd personnel decisions. MJ probably lost a bet on a golf game with Steve Kerr. Kerr probably proposed the Richardson trade if he won and a different trade if MJ won. Which still probably would have been a better trade for the Suns, just looked good to MJ compared to the Richardson trade.
