Phoenix Suns Trade Sebastian Telfair To Toronto Raptors

Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sports

Sebastian Telfair has never lived up to the hype he has had, but he has still managed to stick around the league. The Toronto Raptors will be his new team after the Phoenix Suns have agreed to ship him out.

This makes a lot of sense for Phoenix because they needed to free up time for Kendall Marshall. The rookie has shown some flashes of talent, so the team needs to see what they have on him. There was no point in keeping Bassy around to block him. With this move up north, he may see some more playing time.

In the scheme of things, this trade really doesn’t have an effect on either team in the long run. I don’t see Hamed Haddadi doing much in Phoenix unless the team decides to move on from Jermaine O’Neal. That could still happen, but it might not make a whole ton of sense in the long run.

The second rounder that Phoenix gets in this deal might be the biggest thing that comes out of this deal.  The Suns want to rebuild and getting picks is a good way to do that.  They might find a steal with that pick or they could package it to make a bigger move.  It may seem like a strange way of doing things, but this deadline hasn’t made a ton of sense this year.

Watch Suns' Morris Attack His Own Teammate Goodwin

Just when it looked like Markieff Morris was ready to put all of the shenanigans behind him and focus on basketball, he does something stupid again. This time, he got so infuriated with teammate Archie Goodwin that he attacked him inside the Suns' timeout huddle. He not only shoved him, but he attempted to choke Goodwin which is way over the line.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.
