Phoenix Suns trade Marcin Gortat, Shannon Brown, Hamed Haddadi and a 2013 second-round pick (from the Denver Nuggets). Atlanta Hawks trade their own 2013 first-round pick and their own 2015 first-round pick.
Analysis for Phoenix
Phoenix gets two more first-rounders to either select potential impact players or make more trades during their rebuilding period.
In addition, Phoenix gets rid of two players (Brown and Haddadi) that likely wouldn't play much next season and free up a little more than $12.5 million in cap space.
Analysis for Atlanta
Atlanta has only five players under contract for next season and will have close to $30 million in cap space. To be frank, they need capable bodies for next year.
In this deal, the Hawks get a capable replacement for likely departure Josh Smith. Also, getting a legitimate center like Gortat would finally allow Al Horford to play his natural position of power forward.
To conclude the deal, Brown would give them a versatile scorer for their bench and Haddadi provides frontcourt depth.
Atlanta may not want to give up their first-round pick, but they'll consider it if it means they remain in playoff contention, which would seem likely with the addition of Gortat.
