Suns take Day’Ron Sharpe, trade rights to Nets

PHOENIX (AP) The Phoenix Suns selected Day'Ron Sharpe with the 29th overall pick in Thursday night's NBA draft but quickly traded the rights to the North Carolina big man to the Brooklyn Nets in a deal to land shooting guard Landry Shamet.

The Sharpe trade to the Nets was announced during the draft. Published reports said the Suns were getting Shamet, a three-year veteran who was the No. 26 selection in 2018 out of Wichita State, in exchange for the pick and guard Jevon Carter.

The Suns sent out a news release Thursday night confirming Sharpe had been traded to Brooklyn but saying the "planned trade has other terms and is not yet final."
