Suns acquire Devin Booker nemesis Troy Daniels from Memphis Grizzlies

The Suns' acquisition of guard Troy Daniels, along with a second-round pick, from Memphis could be a little awkward at the beginning of their new relationship.

Daniels and Suns guard Devin Booker had a memorable exchange last year, and now they are teammates.

From an azcentral sports story in February:

(Booker) was involved in a scuffle near the end of Wednesday nights loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. Troy Daniels launched a 3 that Booker contested. The shot dropped. Booker was called for a foul. According to several Phoenix players, Daniels talked trash.

That led to pushing ... . After a long review " even Suns center Tyson Chandler yelled from the bench for officials to hurry up and make a decision " three players were ejected. Three others, including Booker, received technical fouls.

After the game, Booker had harsh words for Daniels.

"I dont know why he would be talking to me,'' Booker said. "Hes been on five teams in three years and he has the nerve to talk trash to me. Hes on a winning team, so you have those muscles when youre on a winning team. It is what it is. We will see him again.


Well, those words now certainly ring true. The Suns gather in the Valley for media day Monday, before heading up to Flagstaff for a week of training camp.

Daniels comes to the Suns along with a 2018 second-round pick from the Grizzlies in exchange for a conditional Suns 2018 second-round pick. He'll help fill the hole created when rookie Davon Reed went down with a knee injury that will sideline him four to six months.
