The Phoenix Suns have acquired forwards Royce O’Neale and David Roddy in a three-team trade with the Brooklyn Nets and Memphis Grizzlies, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
Brooklyn sent O’Neale to Phoenix for three second-round picks while Memphis ships Roddy to Phoenix for a pick swap. In return, the Grizzlies will get Yuta Watanabe from the Suns as well as three other minimum-salary players: Keita Bates-Diop, Jordan Goodwin and Chimezie Metu.
The Suns retain assets after this three-team deal for O'Neale and Roddy -- including a second-rounder and pick swaps. Additionally, Phoenix now has two roster spots open to pursue additions on the buyout market.
O’Neale and Roddy are two big wings who will fortify the Suns' playoff rotation. O’Neale, 30, is averaging 7.4 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 49 games this season. Roddy, 22, is averaging 8.4 points and 4.2 rebounds in 48 games this season.
