The Suns drafted Josh Jackson No. 4 overall just two years ago.
Already, Phoenix is treating him like a salary dump.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
Chris Herrington of The Daily Memphian:
Given far more playmaking responsibility than he can handle, Jackson has too frequently forced and missed bad shots. He has shown flashes of impressive creation, but he hasn’t sustained it nearly enough.
This trade is costly for Phoenix, letting another team take fliers on Jackson and Melton and surrendering two second-round picks. But the Suns are clearly targeting their type of players without much concern for the value.
The Grizzlies are the latest team to take advantage.
Korver’s $7.5 million salary is just $3.44 million guaranteed until Sunday. He has declined significantly at age 38, especially defensively. But the sharpshooter can still help a good team in a limited role.
