The Phoenix Suns acquired guard Landry Shamet from the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for guard Jevon Carter and the draft rights to Day’Ron Sharpe(29th overall pick in the 2021 draft), the team announced on Friday.
Shamet has played three NBA seasons, appearing in the playoffs three times, and averaged a career-best 9.3 points for the Nets in 2020-21.
The 24-year-old has averaged 9.2 points per game on 41.6% shooting from the field, 39.7% from three-point range, and 83.4% from the free-throw line in 193 career regular-season games (69 starts) with Philadelphia, the LA Clippers, and Brooklyn.
Shamet has totaled 407 career three-point makes as his 39.7% career mark from beyond the arc ranks 17th among all active players (min. 300 3PM).
The 26th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft should give the Suns decent scoring off the bench next season. Phoenix is trying to win now, and bringing in a guy like Shamet should help that cause.
