Memphis Grizzlies Acquire Josh Jackson From Phoenix Suns in Trade

The Memphis Grizzlies have acquired Josh Jackson, De’Anthony Melton and two second-round picks from the Phoenix Suns for Kyle Korver and Jevon Carter. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN was first to report the deal.

Memphis continues to acquire young talent as Jackson was the number four overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Jackson hasn’t quite lived up to the billing of a fourth overall pick yet, as he has only 11.5 points per game last season for the Suns. Melton was a second-round pick last year and averaged 5.0 points per game for Phoenix.

The Suns will keep Carter, which will give them point guard depth behind newly acquired Ricky Rubio. Carter was a rookie last season for the Grizzlies and averaged 4.4 points per game. They will reportedly buyout Kyle Korver, who will likely draw interest from the Lakers, 76ers and Bucks.
