    Jared Dudley, Draft Pick Traded to Nets; Suns Get Darrell Arthur

    The Phoenix Suns reportedly agreed to trade Jared Dudley to the Brooklyn Nets on Friday.

    Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nets will receive Dudley and a 2021 second-round pick from Phoenix for Darrell Arthur.

    Wojnarowski added Arthur, who will make $7.4 million, is headed for a buyout from the Suns, and Dudley could have similar discussions with the Nets.

    Arthur has appeared in just 60 games over the past two seasons combined. The 30-year-old averaged a career-low 2.8 points per game in 2017-18.

    Dudley signed a three-year, $30 million contract with the Suns prior to the 2016-17 season, and his return to the desert was marked by a transition to a new role.

    After operating primarily as a shooting guard-small forward hybrid during his first four-and-a-half seasons (2008-2013) with the Suns, he shifted to power forward following a resurgent 2015-16 campaign with the Washington Wizards.

    Operating primarily as a floor-stretching, small-ball 4 during his lone year with the Wizards, Dudley averaged 6.8 points and 3.5 rebounds per game on 45.4 percent shooting from the field, including 37.9 percent shooting from three.

    In 48 games last season, Dudley averaged 3.2points and 2.0 boards on 39.3percent shooting and 36.3percent from three in a career-low 14.3minutes per game.
