The Phoenix Suns acquired Emeka Okafor from the Washington Wizards as part of a five-player trade on Friday. He is currently sidelined due to a herniated disk in his neck and there is no timeline for a return to the active roster. The Suns believe Okafor will be healthy at some point, although if he never plays for the team that is okay as the plan this season is to develop the young players with a focus on the 2014 NBA draft.

The Suns are going to be one of the worst team in the NBA this season and Okafor could seek an exit at some point so he can play for title contender.

From Grantland's Bill Simmons: "Okafor now becomes a super-intriguing February buyout guy if healthy. Exactly the kind of vet big man the Clips are praying for."

The Suns will likely agree to a buyout if Okafor is willing to accept at least a reduction in owed salary equaling the amount of the veteran minimum. Simmons is correct that several playoff teams will target Okafor if he is healthy and comes available via a buyout. Chicago, along with the Clippers might be at the front of the line.

he's injured soooo... even if he is bought out now, he can't play till he's healed. Feb is the estimated return date.
