Suns Officially Acquire Landry Shamet From Nets

The Nets have officiallt traded guard Landry Shamet to the Suns for guard Jevon Carter and first-round pick Day’Ron Sharpe, a center from North Carolina.<a rel=

Shamet, 24, is 6-foot-4 and averaged 9.3 points in 61 games this past season, as the Nets were his third team in three seasons. He is eligible for a rookie-scale contract extension in 2022. 

Carter, 25, is 6-1 and averaged 4.1 points in limited action with the Western Conference champions. He did appear in 60 games, though, and assuming he sticks in Brooklyn, will offer some depth behind the likes of Kyrie Irving and James Harden.

Sharpe is 6-11 and was selected with the No. 29 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.

Now the Nets have added guards Patty Mills and DeAndre’ Bembry, and forward James Johnson, as well as Carter and a nice propsect in Sharpe since the end of the season.

β€œSome context to Landry Shamet being traded to the Suns: Monty Williams was a huge advocate for Shamet after coaching him in Philly,” wrote Jordan Schultz of ESPN. β€œNets also wanted to get off Landry before he was eligible for his extension this fall, according to league sources.”

Phoenix is coming off a run to the Finals after missing the playoffs for 10 straight seasons.
