Hamed Haddadi, 2nd round pick to Phoenix Suns for Sebastian Telfair

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

It happened! We got us a huge backup, backup center! And then, reportedly, the Suns are releasing Haddadi immediately.

This story is NOT confirmed by the Suns, but it is reported on the interwebs.

Seriously though, the Phoenix Suns effectively replaced the second round pick they traded away for Marcus Morris by sending backup, backup point guard Sebastian Telfair for backup, backup Center Hamed Haddadi.

For those who don't know who Hamed Haddadi is, you need to learn up quick!

It's possible that Haddadi will play for the Suns, but if they keep Gortat and O'Neal he would not get any minutes.

UPDATE at 1:30: Haddadi will be released, per Gambo.
