Justin Upton to Atlanta Braves? It's been discussed

The Justin Upton trade winds have been swirling for a while now, though at this point it does not seem like a deal is imminent.

One of the teams rumored to be interested in the young D-back's services is the Atlanta Braves. You know, the same Braves team that just inked Justin's brother B.J. to a big contract.

So, could there be a brotherly reunion in Hotlanta?

The two have discussed it, apparently.

According to Braves beat writer for MLB.com Mark Bowman, the brothers Upton have thought about sharing the same outfield.

"B.J. Upton said he and his brother Justin Upton have had a few conversations about possibility of playing together in Atlanta."

And, as David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution tweeted out, there brothers would like to make it happen.

The D-backs are rumored to be seeking, at the very least, a young shortstop in return for Upton, and the Braves have one in Andrelton Simmons.

Atlanta was not willing to part with the 23-year-old when his name was brought up a month ago, but it's fair to wonder if that stance will change with the team's latest acquisition.
