Wesley Johnson To Phoenix Suns, Robin Lopez To New Orleans Hornets In Three Way Deal

A three-way trade between the Phoenix Suns, New Orleans Hornets and Minnesota Timberwolves has apparently occurred that will send Wesley Johnson from Minnesota to Phoenix and Robin Lopez and Hakim Warrick to New Orleans. Here are the details of the trade from Brett Martel of the Associated Press.

  • Receive Lopez and Warrick from Phoenix

Minnesota Timberwolves
