Yup, it's this kind of deadline.
Telfair is on the books for just more than $1.56 million and Haddadi for $1.3 with a nonguaranteed season next year. Moving Telfair makes room for Kendall Marshall in the rotation for the rebuilding Suns while clearing a little bit of money. Telfair gives the Raptors another guard after they traded Jose Calderon in the Rudy Gay deal earlier this month.
It's good that Phoenix is committing to cutting salary and clearing money for the young players. You'd just think they would have made more moves with their veterans. But this is a good, small deal for both sides to accomplish some basic goals.
Telfair will compete for time with John Lucas III in Toronto. He averaged 6 points and 2.5 assists for the Suns this season.
