Landry Shamet and the Pheonix Suns came to an agreement on a four-year, $43 million extension.
Shamet is part of a deep Suns backcourt so his playing time might be a little up and down, but this extension clearly shows how they view Shamet as a player.
The Brooklyn Nets have traded Landry Shamet to the Pheonix Suns in exchange for Jevon Carter and the 29th pick in Thursday's NBA Draft.
Shamet showed flashes during his tenure with the Nets, but he never got consistent playing time to show for it. There should be more opportunity open for him with the Suns second unit. Carter adds a potential defensive piece to what is already a relativley deep Nets roster. We will see who they end up taking with that draft pick as well on Thursday.
Landry Shamet will be available to play Saturday for Brooklyn ahead of game one of their first-round series against Boston.
Shamet has been dealing with a left ankle sprain, but he will be good to go for the Nets.
Landry Shamet scored 12 points (4-8 FG, 4-7 3PT) to go along with two rebounds and three assists in the Nets win Sunday over Cleveland.
Shamet saw the start in the Nets final regular season game of the year. Brooklyn will prepare to play the winner of the Celtics/Wizards play-in game in round one.
Landry Shamet scored 21 points (7-9 FG, 5-7 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds, one assist and one block in the Nets win Wednesday over the Spurs.
After a stretch of games where he scored a combined seven points in four games, Shamet finally found his rhythm as a scorer against San Antonio.
