The Phoenix Suns had a busy day at the NBA trade deadline on Thursday.

The team announced the acquisitions of forward Torrey Craig and guard Aaron Holiday on Thursday night.

And in corresponding moves, the Suns also waived forward Abdel Nader released forward Justin Jackson.

Nader, 28, last played on Nov. 19 and has been inactive since Dec. 10 due to right knee injury management.

In 14 appearances for Phoenix this season, the forward averaged 2.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 0.6 steals in 10.4 minutes played per game.

Jackson, 26, signed two 10-day contracts with the Suns this season.

The first came on Jan. 4 and the second came on Feb. 1.

The forward made seven appearances for the Suns this season, averaging 2.1 points and one rebound in 5.2 minutes per contest.

Phoenix hosts the Milwaukee Bucks in an NBA Finals rematch on Thursday night at 8 p.m.

Catch all the action from Footprint Center on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
