Suns trade Morris, Granger, Bullock to Pistons

POSTED: Jul 9, 2015 2:44 PM ET


— The Phoenix Suns have made it official, confirming the trade of forward Marcus Morris, guard Reggie Bullock and forward-guard Danny Granger to the Detroit Pistons.

The move, reported by The Associated Press and several other outlets last week, was a salary dump as the Suns made a strong but ultimately unsuccessful push to sign coveted free agent LaMarcus Aldridge.

The trade separates the Morris twins, a move that reportedly has upset the Suns' Markieff Morris. Marcus Morris got into a courtside shouting match with coach Jeff Hornacek last season. The twins also have pleaded not guilty to assault in an incident outside a local recreation center.

The Suns receive a 2020 second-round pick in the trade.
