Reports have not yet surfaced of what the Suns are giving the Wizards in return for Aaron Holiday. However, they are receiving a sophomore center in Vernon Carey, Jr. and one of the most veteran guards in the league in Ish Smith in return for power forward Montrezl Harrell.
Smith is in his 12th season in the NBA. This will be his second stint with the Wizards, and keeps his number of teams he has played for at 12.
