The Nets have made a deal with the Phoenix Suns before the start of the 2021 NBA Draft, dealing G Landry Shamet in exchange for PG Jevon Carter and the No. 29 pick in the draft, SNY's Ian Begley confirmed.

Shamet was rumored to be discussed in potential trades with the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers, Begley reported earlier.

But Suns head coach Monty Williams worked with Shamet during their time with the Philadelphia 76ers, and now they're reunited.

Shamet, 24, played 61 games with 12 starts for Brooklyn last season, averaging 9.3 points, 1.6 assists and 1.8 rebounds per game. He shot 41 percent from the field with 38.7 percent from beyond the arc for the Nets, too.

As for Carter, the West Virginia product played 60 games with only one start last season in Phoenix, earning 12 minutes per game. He averaged 4.1 points and 1.2 assists in that span, as he's been a backup throughout his early career. With Kyrie Irving on board, he should remain that way.

And as for the draft, the Nets now have the No. 27 and No. 29 picks heading into Thursday's festivities. Could that be packaged for a higher pick? We'll find out.
