Robin Lopez Three-Way Deal Hits Bump, Still Likely To Go Through
While Robin Lopez is likely to be eventually moved to the Hornets in a sign-and-trade, a proposed three-way deal had hit a few bumps as of Wednesday evening.
Phoenix, New Orleans and Minnesota have agreed to the framework of a three-way deal that would send Lopez and Hakim Warrick from the Suns to the Hornets and Wesley Johnson, a first-round pick and Brad Miller's contract to the Suns.
The Suns would waive Miller, who has a buyout of about $800,000 and announced he would retire after last season.
Phoenix would get the first-round pick that Memphis owes Minnesota via Houston.
Lopez and the Hornets have already agreed upon a three-year, $15.3 million contract.
