Jordan 'Having Second Thoughts' About Dealing Chandler, Diaw
The proposed trade was first reported on Monday, but Yahoo! Sports now has a source quoted as saying, "Right now, Michael is having second thoughts."
Jordan was reportedly hesitant to deal Chandler, the talented albeit often enigmatic 7-footer with a propensity for both blocking shots and getting in foul trouble. They had been scheduled today to meet with the intention of completing the trade.
Even so, the Raptors are not finished making moves. The Toronto Star is reporting that their trade with the Phoenix Suns, which would send Hedo Turkoglu to the Suns and Leandro Barbosa to Toronto is still going to happen.
Turkoglu was the beneficiary of a massive five-year, $60 million contract last summer. However, the move did not work out as Turkoglu struggled mightily in his one season up north, averaging just 11.3 points on 40.9 percent shooting from the field, his lowest numbers since the 03-04 season with the Kings.
