Who saw this one coming? Not even Miss CleoÂ saw this happening and she’s the all knowing! Given the new direction Steve Kerr has been building towards emphasizing defence, this move is a bit of a surprise. Yesterday, RajaÂ Bell along with forward Boris Diaw and guard Sean Singletary were dealt to the Charlotte Bobcats for Jason Richardson and forward Jared Dudley. This trade automatically works for the Suns offensively with Richardson giving them an added scoring punch, in the form of a legit shooting guard. However, Richardson is still allergic to defence and Bell will be missed against the likes of Kobe Bryant and the Lakers.
Straight up, this trade doesn’t work for the Bobcats because Diaw will be joining an already crowded front court and lets just face it. Nothing ever works out for them anyway. Their I said it!
