NBA Trade Rumors: Wes Johnson To Suns As Part Of Robin Lopez Deal?

The Minnesota Timberwolves have already made small deals this summer to ship out Wayne Ellington and Brad Miller, but the newest NBA trade rumor carries quite a bit more weight as the team is apparently shopping former fourth overall pick Wesley Johnson.

Johnson struggled mightily last season and, after showcasing him a bit in the NBA Summer League, the team has apparently found a way to get good value for him as a part of a three-way deal apparently centered around the Phoenix Suns shipping Robin Lopez to the New Orleans Hornets.

Wojnarowski has yet to report what the team would get in return (aside from the minor pieces of Jerome Dyson and a return of Brad Miller), but the Star Tribune's Jerry Zgoda is guessing that they'd receive Carl Landry and possibly another piece.
