BREAKING: Phoenix Suns Ship Three To Detroit
Even quicker than the time it took Detroit to bring in Baynes from the Spurs to replace Greg Monroe in the frontcourt, Detroit swung a deal with another western conference team.
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Suns have sent Marcus Morris, Reggie Bullock and Danny Granger to Detroit for future draft considerations.
Wojnarowski also reports that the Pistons will be sending a 2020 2nd round pick to the Suns as compensation, no word yet on any more picks going to Phoenix.
CBS Sports' Ken Berger confirms the trade saying the Suns now have north of $20 million in cap space as it stands.
This deal is certainly all the Suns' idea as they make their pitch for a top free agent in LaMarcus Aldridge. As Berger reports with a max contract able to be stomached by Phoenix they're all in on the Aldridge sweepstakes.
As for the Pistons, this deal gets them Bullock, a depth 2-3 position player, Morris, an on the rise power forward to supplement the 4-spot, and Granger a former NBA All-Star to compete with first round pick Stanley Johnson at small forward.
It's worth noting David Aldridge of TNT reports the Pistons are uncertain as to the future of Danny Granger on their squad.
The Suns dump roster space for Aldridge is what all the headlines will read but don't discount the pieces the Pistons got. They are getting better with each personnel move under Stan Van Gundy.
