The Phoenix Suns didn’t want their summer to be defined by losing Amar’e Stoudemire to the New York Knicks, and they made sure of it Sunday night with two major deals, acquiring veteran forward Hedo Turkoglu from the Toronto Raptors for guard Leandro Barbosa and agreeing to a trade with the Atlanta Hawks that will bring restricted free agent Josh Childress, whose rights the Hawks still hold, to Phoenix in exchange for a second-round pick. Childress will receive a five-year, $34 million deal from Phoenix.

Hedo’s Pizza Party is coming to Phoenix (insert your own Arizona immigration laws joke here).

Also, this deal will mark Childress’ return to the league after playing in Greece for two seasons. No word if Childress is a fan of the Chillwave movement.
