Fresh off an appearance in the NBA Finals, the Phoenix Suns are not wasting any time looking to improve their depth. That now includes adding guard Landry Shamet in a trade with the Brooklyn Nets.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Phoenix has acquired the veteran guard from Brooklyn for Jevon Carter and the 29th pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.

A first-round pick of the Philadelphia 76ers in 2018, Shamet gives the Phoenix Suns some more depth out on the perimeter behind Devin Booker. He averaged 9.3 points on 39% shooting from three-point range for the Nets a season ago.

In return, Brooklyn picks up a late first-round selection to go with the 27th overall pick. We can expect more movement from the Nets once the 2021 NBA Draft kicks off Thursday evening in New York City.
