The Suns receive forward Darrell Arthur in return, but are expected to waive Arthur following a contract buyout. Arthur is due $7.4 million for the upcoming season.

The second-round pick is for 2021 and reportedly is protected through No. 35, the latest in a haul of draft picks collected by the Nets.

Dudley, 33, joins his sixth team as he heads into his 12th season. He’s a career .396 shooter from beyond the arc and has averaged 8.0 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists over 788 career games.

He’s due $9.5 million this season.

Arthur came to the Nets in a separate trade with the Denver Nuggets last Friday, which also included forward Kenneth Faried and a protected 2019 first-round pick going to Brooklyn.

Arthur, 30, has averaged 6.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 503 career games with Memphis and Denver.
