I got a chance to talk to Ryne Nelson of SLAMonline
, Stu Holdren of NBA Noise
, Zach Harper of TalkHoops
and Ben of Ben’s Suns Blog
about the two trades that sent eight players packing and on flights to their new NBA homes Wednesday.
The biggest trade had the Phoenix Suns sending Boris Diaw, Raja Bell and Sean Singletary in exchange for Jason Richardson, Jared Dudley and a 2010 second round pick.
In the other trade, the Wizards acquired Mike James from the Hornets and Javaris Crittenton from the Grizzlies, while the Hornets get Antonio Daniels from the Wizards. Memphis comes away with a future first round pick.
Listen in as we talk about the winners and losers, how this trade affects each team, and if Jason Richardson can help get the Suns over the hump and into the finals. Oh and we have some not too kind words about Mike James as well.
