Sebastian Telfair traded to Raptors for Hamed Haddadi, according to reports

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

The Phoenix Suns have sent journeyman point guard Sebastian Telfair to Toronto, adding big man Hamed Haddadi in the deal.

The Phoenix Suns have traded point guard Sebastian Telfair to the Toronto Raptors for Hamed Haddadi and a second-round pick, according to reports from Ken Berger and Chris Broussard. Broussard cited a source that said the deal was done.

When the Suns dropped to the bottom of the Western Conference, Telfair fell out of the playing rotation, as Phoenix started giving rookie Kendall Marshall more minutes. Telfair is earning $1.6 million this season, the last year of his contract.

In Toronto, Telfair will likely replace John Lucas III as the backup to Kyle Lowry. The Raptors replace Lucas' scoring ability with Telfair's playmaking, but the difference is marginal.
