The Phoenix Suns have traded backup point guard Sebastian Telfair to the Toronto Raptors for center Hamed Haddadi and a second-round pick. The 7-2 center became the first Iranian-born player in NBA history when he made his debut with the Memphis Grizzlies in 2008-09, according to insidehoops.
Haddadi, who played his first four-plus seasons with the Grizzlies (2008-13), was part of the Jan. 30 trade between Memphis and Toronto that sent Rudy Gay to the Raptors.
Haddadi owns career averages of 2.0 points and 2.1 rebounds in 134 career contests, and this season appeared in 13 games for Memphis before the trade. He has not played a game as a member of the Raptors.
Originally signed by the Suns on Dec. 11, 2011, Telfair appeared in 106 games (three starts) for the Suns over the last season-plus. The eight-year pro owns career averages of 7.5 points and 3.5 assists in 535 games (192 starts), and averaged 6.0 points and 2.5 assists in 46 games (two starts) with the Suns this season.
