Phoenix Suns point guard Sebastian Telfair will reportedly be shipped to the Toronto Raptors in exchange for Iranian big man Hamed Haddadi and, more importantly, a second-round pick, according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard and CBS Sports’ Ken Berger.

The second-round pick is reportedly protected.

Update (5:45 p.m. MST): The trade is official and is the lesser of a second-round pick of the Raptors and the Sacramento Kings in the case that the Toronto selection is not a top-36 pick.

Haddadi, 27, was part of the deal presumably for no other reason than to make the salaries line up. He is making $1.3 million this season and has a team option for next. With Phoenix still with Marcin Gortat and Jermaine O’Neal on the roster 45 minutes before the trade deadline, the 7-foot-2 Haddadi does not appear to have a future with the Suns.

He was traded from Memphis earlier this season in a throw-in to the Rudy Gay deal, but he never reported to Toronto because of visa issues, according to the Toronto Sun.
