Telfair Open to Move; Fine with Staying
While Jared Dudley and Marcin Gortat are most often rumored in trade scenarios, the more likely candidates would be veterans on expiring contracts such as Jermaine O’Neal and Sebastian Telfair.
For Telfair, he already has been relegated to a non-rotation role to make way for first-round draft pick Kendall Marshall at backup point guard. Telfair came to Phoenix two years ago in hopes of playing in the playoffs for the first time.
“If they’re a contender, and I’m going to get an opportunity to go compete in the playoffs and for the championship, then definitely, absolutely, right away,” Telfair said. “But other than that, I’d rather stay with my guys that I’m with right now…. I ain’t counting myself (out) as a Phoenix Sun yet.”
