The Phoenix Suns have acquired Isaiah Todd from the Washington Wizards as part of the Bradley Beal trade package. On Sunday, Washington finalized a trade to send Beal to Phoenix for Chris Paul, Landry Shamet, Jordan Goodwin, multiple second-round draft picks, and a picks swap.
Todd, 21, was selected 31st overall by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2021 NBA Draft. Todd was then traded to the Indiana Pacers and Washington Wizards. While with the G League Ignite in the 2020-21 season, Todd made two starts in 15 appearances. He averaged 12.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 24.4 minutes per game.
Per multiple NBA betting sites, the Suns now hold fourth-shortest odds to win next season’s championship in 2024. Check out which sportsbooks are showing better odds for the Denver Nuggets, Boston Celtics, and Milwaukee Bucks.

With the Capital City Go-Go in the 2021-22 season, the forward logged 11.7 points, 5.1 boards, 1.0 assist, 1.0 block, and 30.7 minutes per game in 27 games. In August 2021, Todd signed a four-year, $7 million contract with the Wizards.
In 12 games off the bench with Washington in his rookie 2021-22 NBA season, the forward averaged 1.7 points, 1.0 rebound, and 6.2 minutes per game. He also shot 26.9% from the field and 33.3% at the foul line.

Moreover, in the 2022-23 season, Todd made six appearances with Washington. The 6-foot-10 wing averaged 1.5 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 10.2 minutes per game while shooting 15.8% from the floor and 10% outside the arc.
Additionally, in Washington’s 114-109 regular-season finale loss to the Houston Rockets on Apr. 9, the forward recorded career highs of seven points and 12 rebounds in 46 minutes of his first career start.
However, the second-year wing missed quite a few shots. He finished 2-of-14 (14.3%) shooting from the floor, 1-of-7 (14.3%) beyond the arc, and 2-of-2 (100%) at the free throw line.
We have a third piece to the Beal trade, Isaiah Todd.
He’s a former 5-star recruit and you can see why. 6’10” with a 7’1” wingspan and the ability to stretch the floor.
He’s yet to put it all together, but maybe Vogel and the Suns can help him do that.pic.twitter.com/npI1T89Ci6

In the 2022-23 G League season with the Go-Go, the forward averaged 6.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 20.4 minutes per game. Todd’s best G League season was his rookie year.
Regarding his NBA contract details, Todd is projected to earn $1,836,096 in 2023-24 and $1,988,598 in 2024-25. Of course, 2024-25 is not guaranteed. His 7-foot-1 wingspan should benefit the Suns’ frontcourt.
