The proposed three-team trade that would send Robin Lopez to the New Orleans Hornets and Wesley Johnson to the Phoenix Suns now has a 50/50 chance of happening, according to a report from BrightSideOfTheSun.com.
Babby told meeting of Suns fans that Lopez trade is 50/50 due to rules complications.— BrightSideoftheSun (@BrightSideSun) July 26, 2012
Babby would be Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby. The deal reportedly involved five players and a first-round draft pick, so it's possible the issues are salary cap related. Earlier Wednesday, Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic reported the issue could be the first-round pick Phoenix will receive.
Part of the hang-up on the Lopez 3-way deal is the terms of the 1st-rounder the #Suns will get from MIN. It might be a MEM pick owed to MIN.— Paul Coro (@paulcoro) July 25, 2012
