    The #Suns await league approval on sending Sebastian Telfair to Toronto for Hamed Haddadi & a 2nd-round pick (lowest of TOR & SAC in 2014).

    2nd rd pick for 28 game rental for a team with 20% shot at playoffs.... at best.

    I interpreted it as being the lowest (as in worst of the two)

    Telfair is a downgrade. I rather have JLIII to be honest.

    Telfairs highlights and his averages tell two totally contradictory stories!

    IF he can perform 3/4 of JL3 then our bench has gotten stronger.

    Good that we got rid of Haddi's $$

    I'm guessing Lucas will remain as the backup until Telfair earns it? (if he even does)

    I called this a couple days ago, as soon as the first rumor leaked about Toronto being a possible landing spot for Telfair or Ridnour. I don't really like the fact that a 2nd round pick was involved as well, but they still have one 2nd round pick in 2014 (the better of the two), so it's not too big a deal - if Toronto becomes a playoff team next season, it will be somewhere in the 45-60 range.

    I'm gonna be the optimist and say maybe 7th team's the charm. Not a good scorer, but is a good passer and i heard he's a "decent" defender. Could be a nice run n gun pg for the 2nd unit. Who knows? Maybe we'll this version of Telfair.

    Yes, I would have preferred we send them The Forgotten Raptor instead of a 2nd round pick. What's his name again? Sounds like Zircona Rubic or something like that.

    Haddadi traded twice in a space of a few months to two teams which had no intention to ever give him a chance to play.

    Not sure how anyone can care about this deal. You trade a guy who you had no intention of playing with a guaranteed deal for next year for a short term expiring who fills a need in case of injury this year. I don't understand why people care about the second round pick. Every year there are a dozen of these available. If Toronto really needs another Quincy Acy to hug guys before the game and waive towels (e.g. Quincy Acy's arm gets sore or he's all hugged out) they can buy one for cash....

    Wow what an awful trade! Haddadi was starting to show lots of potential this year and I believe he could average 20 and 10 in his prime and become an allstar eventually..!!..!! yup yup!!

    How about Rickey Sanchez? Drafted in 2005, his rights were traded today from Memphis to Miami. That's the third time he's been traded without ever putting on an NBA uniform. Hmm, ....potential Raptor?

    Default Sebastian Telfair

    Give a friendly welcome to our backup 2nd or 3rd stringer PG in Sebastian Telfair who once was deemed to be one of the better elite PG, the answer who would go along with Lebron James. Unfortunately, he didn't pan out that well except for his tenure days with the Wolves. Let's hope he finds a nice comfortable role as a Rap. I wonder what jersey No he will wear. No3 is given to Lowry, No31 is given to Ross and No5 is given to Lucas. I think we might give Jose Calderon's old jersey No8 or No30.
