Bell asked for trade

Suns guard Raja Bell asked for a trade two weeks ago, according to a KTAR-AM report that was confirmed by two team sources. It also has come to light that Bell had inquired about an extension this summer with two years left on his deal.

Reached for comment Friday, Bell said, "I wish them the best of luck. That part of my life is over."

Interesting. As much as I should dislike Raja, I'm actually a big fan of his. I hope he does well and finds his way.

I Met Him Last Year At A Hotel And He Was Really Cool, So I Wish Him Nothing But Success...

Might Be Hard Pressed For Success On The Bobcats Though LOL....

Yeah, well its a business, its not like they still won't be friends. Clearly he was unhappy with the situation, as is understandable. Sometimes just being friends with somebody isn't enough to stay in a ****** situation.

That's fine, Raja was upset and would preferr to spend his final years in mediocrity. Fine with me I got J-Rich out of it.

Okay they're not Butt Buddy Boyfriends man. I hate the term BEST FRIEND! RAJA AND NASH WERE SO BFF! LIKEZ OMGZ WHY'D HE LEAVE HIS BFF! OMFG! So stupid.

They were really close friends and Raja wasn't happy in Phoenix anymore which has nothing to do with Nash. Raja made a decision and his friendship isn't based on him playing for the Suns. What kind of friendship would that be then?

And how would trading away an over-the-hill average defender and a huge under-performer be a bad trade? Unless you can see the future you have no idea what your talking about.

What are the rules on trading a player once hes been acquired within season? Not that I think the bobcats will ship raja out, and I'm sure larry brown will love him. but is it 90 days befor he can be traded again?

Didn't realize Raja Bell was an important enough player to be demanding trades...but he got his wish I guess. So good for him.
