Goran Dragic Shipped Off by Phoenix Suns for Ball-Hogging, Brick-Shooting Houston Rockets PG Aaron Brooks

Yeah, that Aaron Brooks
The Phoenix Suns' front office was hinting at bringing in some big name players as the trade deadline approached Thursday, but all they ended up with was a point guard shooting 34.6 percent from the field and barely 6 feet tall.

The Suns announced their acquisition of Houston Rockets point guard Aaron Brooks, in exchange for Slovenian native Goran Dragic and a protected first-round pick.

John Gambadoro of KTAR had reported about some trades the Suns were considering -- including for Oklahoma City's Eric Maynor, Denver's duo of Ty Lawson and Raymond Felton, as well as a three-way trade that would have shipped off Robin Lopez, his hair, and Mickael Pietrus for Utah playmaker Paul Millsap.

Now with Dragic (and his smokin' hot girlfriend) in Houston, the Suns are stuck with Aaron Brooks, who shot just over 25 percent from the field in his five games before the trade.

Gambadoro says the Suns were frustrated with Dragic's inconsistent play -- we're not sure if that includes his 42.1 percent field-goal percentage -- but it seems like the Suns just wanted a guy who they were sure would play crappy basketball just about every night.

If Brooks plays in Phoenix as terribly as he has been in Houston this year, it wouldn't be that detrimental to the Suns.

If the Suns don't make the playoffs they'll hang on to their lottery pick for next year's draft, and fork over the previously-acquired first round pick from Orlando over to Houston.

Add in the fact that Brooks will cost $2 million more than Dragic next year, and you have just about all you need to know about the Suns' front office.

If anyone watched the Lakers and Suns playoffs last year you may have noticed 11 minutes of Nash to Stoudamire resulting in an obviously thrown game by coach Gentry. Dragic and crew came out and nearly tied that game. The best part was when the Suns lost the playoffs and Gentry smiled from ear to ear. Watching him and Kobe laughing it up was all you needed to know. Professional sports is bullshit and the outcome is known before the game is played. Why waste your time on this crap? They take your money and put you to sleep. Go buy a $30.00 t-shirt and drink some $10.00 beer.


I take it you're not a fan of this trade. : )
