Goran Dragic Heat – Miami Heat offer three players, two first-round picks for Phoenix Suns point guard
Utah Jazz center Enes Kanter and Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Reggie Jackson are the latest players to be traded. Kanter will be headed to the Thunder while Jackson will be going to the Pistons.
This is part of a three-team trade that will also send Thunder center Kendrick Perkins to the Jazz. The Thunder are getting a major upgrade at center with the addition of Kanter.
The Pistons needed a guard since most of their production came from their big men, and Jackson reportedly had a rocky relationship with Thunder head coach Scott Brooks.
