    Default TRADE: Turkoglu For Barbosa and Jones (Update On Pg. 29)

    Yahooooo!!!! Turk to the Suns...God is good.

    LINK: http://www.azcentral.com/sports/suns...childress.html


    "LAS VEGAS - The Suns are on the verge of acquiring forwards Hedo Turkoglu and Josh Childress, swiftly rebounding from the loss of Amar'e Stoudemire with two quality impact players.

    The Suns would send guard Leandro Barbosa to Toronto for Turkoglu, a 6-foot-10 Turkish forward with versatile skills to shoot from long range and be a playmaker.

    Turkoglu, 31, has played 10 NBA seasons with four teams and wanted out of Toronto after an unhappy first season there. He averaged 11.3 points last season on 40.9 percent shootings, his lowest scoring average and shooting percentage in six years. Two seasons ago, Turkoglu was the NBA Most Improved Player when he averaged 19.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.6 assists with Orlando and followed it up with a 2008-09 season with averages of 16.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists.

    Turkoglu could become the Suns' starting power forward in place of Stoudemire, allowing new acquisition Hakim Warrick to come off the bench with Childress, Channing Frye, Jared Dudley and Goran Dragic.

    Phoenix would acquire Childress in a sign-and-trade deal with Atlanta, which still has his rights after he left the Hawks and the NBA to take a three-year, $20 million deal with the Greek team Olympiakos in 2008. Childress, 27, is able to leave Greece early and has agreed to a five-year, $30 million deal with the Suns. He is a 6-foot-8 swingman who averaged 11.1 points over four seasons with Atlanta, shooting 52.2 percent from the field and 36 percent on the 3-pointers.

    Phoenix will give up a future second-round pick to acquire Childress.

    The Suns would use some of their remaining $12.2 million trade exception to make both deals. They acquired the exception in the Stoudemire sign-and-trade Friday and used the first $4 million of it to do a sign-and-trade for Warrick.

    Turkoglu is represented by Lon Babby, who leagues sources have said will be the next leader of the Suns' basketball operations. Until recently, Childress was represented by Babby's agency before he switched to Octagon."

    Welcome to the New Uptempo Raps, ya'll!! There must be sum'n that BC has as the last shoe to drop. We're probably going for a big name SF, to fill the shoes Turk was supposed to fill.

    If Turk can't work with calderon how is he gonna work with nash? lol. On another note, does this mean we now have around 18 mil in trade exception now?

    IDK, sure Turk didn't play well but I think having him here would be more useful then trading him away for Barbosa.

    BTW I'm wondering the same thing as F9ultra

    Barbosa is an SG? doesn't that mean he will "undermine" Derozen development?

    no, it means if they don't feel like kepp ing him it's easier to trade him then turk.

    Phoenxis has a TPE from Amare's sign and trade with Knicks. They use 9 mil TPE on Hedo in trade one. then we use that new 9 mil TPE to get leandro in a second trade.

    Net effect,

    Phoenix has a TPE remaining worth (Amare's salary - difference b/w Turk and Leandro's salary this year)
    Toronto has a TPE remainign worth (Bosh's salary + difference b/w turk and leandro's salary this year)

    Also I think we'll be trading a pg then to let barbosa play the one. I'm betting jack is gone since his game and barbosa is more similar.

    EDIT: Actually Hedo has a trade kicker, not sure if that kicks in and require a larger TPE than the |9 mil he's earning prior to being traded :S

    Via Paul Coro's twitter:

    Turkoglu is agreeing to yield about $5M of his trade kicker & reduce the guarantee on his deal's final year ($12M in 2013-14)

    Great deal for the Raps. Barbosa isn't perfect by any means, but he can be an explosive scorer. He's also cheaper than Hedo and only signed through next year.

    We even saved just around 3 mill for the first year, no? BC made this move to trigger another for sure. Probably another SF to sign and one of the PGs go, for another PG. Let's see what happens.

    Yeah, ppl elsewhere made a good point that this allows us to use more of our TPE and stay under the lux tax at the same time.
