Listen, the National Basketball Association is a business, and you’ll treat it as such. Keep that in mind when evaluating the latest Suns addition.
Phoenix has acquired veteran guard Troy Daniels from the Memphis Grizzlies.
OFFICIAL: Suns Acquire Troy Daniels From Memphishttps://t.co/uCigobpeLT— Phoenix Suns (@Suns) September 22, 2017
No, you’re not mistaken. It is that Troy Daniels.
February 8th of last season the Suns and Grizzlies met and the two teams were unable to finish that meeting without a physical altercation.
After the game, with emotions running predictably high, Booker addressed the journeyman Daniels, with whom he had been engaging in verbal fisticuffs with for much of the evening.
"I don't know why he's talking to me," Booker said. "He's been on five teams in three years and he has the nerve to talk to me."
And then there was this:

And now they’re teammates. So hopefully they can get along.
Troy Daniels is 26-years-old and the Suns will be his fifth NBA team in three years. Obviously Devin’s math included the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the NBA G League. Last season he averaged 8.2 points in 17.7 minutes per game for Memphis.
The deal includes the two teams swapping second-round picks in 2018.
What do you think of the move?
