Wow, didnt see this coming.

Like it for the Suns, nice to see Kerr still has the balls to shake things up.

Can't see why the Bobcats do it though..

Hopefully J-Rich can stay healthy. This is going to be a an exciting team to watch. It's all or nothing for the Suns. Kerr has been making big trades since hopping on board. Who's next?

I get that we need a 4, but if this is just J Rich for Boris and Bell we just allowed ourselves to get raped. Diaw and Bell aren't as good as they looked a few years ago under D'Antoni. Why deal the best player in the deal (J Rich) and give up a 1st round pick from last year (Dudley) and a 2nd rounder? I don't get it.

This is why I don't even watch Bobcat games any more. We could have at least got Barbosa back.

Terrible trade for the Bobcats.

They must want to get rid of J-Richs contract or something.

Great trade for the Suns, imo.
They get out from under Diaw's onerous contract.
They lose a little defensively, but Richardson is just better than Bell.

So how long before Felton is traded? Augustine has been outplaying him.

I could see them playing small and starting both Felton and Bell.

PG: Augustine
SG: Felton
SF: Bell
PF: Diaw
C: Okafor

No matter what lineup they play, they really have no chance.

i think it's good for both teams. j-rich will fit seamlessly into the suns' offense for sure. does this mean gerald wallace might be next?

The worse part is we traded for 2 guys with bad contracts. Diaw has 4 years $36 mil remaining and Bell also has 2 years $10 mil left. Considering how they've looked this year, I'd much rather pay J Rich's $40 mil over the next 3 years.

Suns just got 2 physical players who can score and defend. I don't like this at all..
