After the Suns drafted Kendall Marshall 13th overall in this year’s draft then went on to sign former Suns point guard Goran Dragic to a 4yr/30M dollar deal it leaves Suns’ back-up point guard Sebastian Telfair the odd man out.
Telfair’s performance last year showed that he’s very capable of being a quality back-up and since he probably won’t be getting any playing time in Phoenix; the Suns will probably look to move him.
The possible trade partners for the Suns right now are the Orlando Magic who are in need of a back-up point guard. The Washington Wizards could also be looking for a back-up point guard to back up John Wall. Another team could be the Indiana Pacers who missing a back-up point guard behind George Hill.
A rumor floated around on ESPN’s NBA rumor section today that Orlando is indeed in search of a back-up point and Telfair was listed as a possible target for Orlando along with Dallas’ Rodrigue Beaubois, Minnesota’s Luke Ridnour, Utah’s Earl Watson and Jamaal Tinsley. Telfair is the 3rd most productive of those guys behind Ridnour, and Beaubois however Telfair comes cheaper than those two guys and Dallas may not be willing let Beaubois go cheap at this point.
