Phoenix sent Telfair, a backup point guard, to the Raptors for a protected second-round draft choice.
The Phoenix Suns acquired Marcus Morris from the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, but that move wasn't their last before the NBA trading deadline.

Telfair signed with the Suns as a free agent before the 2011-12 season and played 106 games, with three starts, in his one-plus seasons with Phoenix. He had averaged 17.3 minutes per game in 2012-13. Moving him for a draft pick frees up more playing time for Kendall Marshall, the point guard who has made just 21 appearances in his rookie season out of North Carolina.
