Diaw about to be traded?

LAS VEGAS - The Suns are on the verge of acquiring forwards Hedo Turkoglu and Josh Childress, swiftly rebounding from the loss of Amar'e Stoudemire with two impact players.

The Suns would send seven-year veteran guard Leandro Barbosa and late-season addition Dwayne Jones to Toronto for Turkoglu, a 6-foot-10 forward from Turkey with versatile skills to shoot from long range and be a playmaker. Toronto would then move Jones and its trade exception from the Chris Bosh sign-and-trade deal to Charlotte for former Suns forward Boris Diaw.

Good trade I think. It's mostly a salary dumb. We'll free up like 8 million from what I read and also have a MLE. We may still get a decent PG or something, who knows. Anyway, I'm glad because this means TT is DEFINITE starter as we all wanted.

He has been in the Bobcats camp before.

Basically he is a big man that is only in the NBA because of the shortage of big men.

There are other reports which also indicate that TC is part of this deal.

More on this story from Rotoworld:

The Bobcats will reportedly send Boris Diaw to the Raptors in what amounts to a salary dump.

Charlotte gets little-used Dwayne Jones, though details of the trade might reveal further incentive. It's a solid move for Toronto, who on Sunday managed to dump an overpaid and disgruntled player (Turkoglu) for Leandro Barbosa and Boris Diaw.

There is no way that the Bobs aren't looking at getting a PG now. Diaw was the best passer on the team.

Can't agree. The Bobs are trying to upgrade the team. If they were rebuilding, they would be trying to trade for expiring contracts not trading away expiring contracts.
