Default Bobcats trade Jason Richardson to Suns for Boris Diaw and Raja Bell!

UPDATE: Trade is now an actual official transcation. http://www.insidehoops.com/richardso...e-121008.shtml



http://www.azcentral.com/sports/suns...adeonline.html

The Suns acquired dynamic shooting guard Jason Richardson today in a trade with the Charlotte Bobcats that will also bring second-year forward Jared Dudley and a 2010 second-round draft choice to the Suns in exchange for shooting guard Raja Bell, forward Boris Diaw and rookie point guard Sean Singletary. The deal, pending players passing physicals, brings a new dimension to the Suns' shooting guard position with Richardson, who can hit 3-pointers and be an athletic fit into an uptempo system like he starred in during five seasons with Golden State. The trade call was completed at about 3:45 p.m. Phoenix time today.

Note from Mod: Thanks for the topic, GreatHill. We've updated with the actual story now

That would be totally beast.

I like that trade Diaw can help out Okafor down in the post. Bell can pretty much take dudleys and morrisons minutes.

Doubt its true but no way is Bell>>Barbosa.

Bell is a below average defender now that can only guard slow SG. Barbosa is a bad defender but he provides scoring off the bench and can actually create for himself. Not to mention age.

Wow...great trade for the Suns. You go Nash-Barbosa-Jrich-Amara-Lopez and you could run teams off the floor (not that porter likes that). Really gives them the finisher in the Backcourt that they have been lacking.

Suns are now in win now mode more than ever. theyre gonna need every defender they can get. they dont care about age apparently.

Bell is not a good defender anymore. Jrich is probably just as capable of a defender. Yes we need defense but keeping a below average defender instead of a bad defender while losing a lot of offense makes no sense.

Dammit Colangelo why didn't you get on that. Bargnani. Graham, Parker >> that package. Kills the depth chart however.

J-Rich helps the Suns. Cant say that Im liking what the Bobcats are getting. An older Raja Bell, and Diaw who hasnt played well since he got payed. 4 rebounds isnt too good. Have his minutes been cut?

Nash/Jrich/Hill/Amare/Shaq with Barnes/Barbosa/Lopez/Dragic/Tucker off the bench.

We could really use some front court depth.
