As previously mentioned, the Suns are signing Justin Jackson to a 10-day hardship contract.
He could stick on a two-way contract down the road if the Suns waive Wainright or Hutchinson. That may be wishful thinking though.
I don't think he's eligible since he's been in the league for more than 4 years.
I remember liking him in the draft in 2017 but we didn't have a mid round 1st to use. Of course he hasn't panned out but he's got some skill.
I like this signing. I saw a bunch of him in college. I beleive we have the right system for him to thrive in. He can shoot the ball which is what we need. Maybe he can take some of Shamet's min's given Shamet has been abysmal thus far.
Meh. Does he really have any chance of breaking Montes rotation in 10 days?
Lets hope so. I guess.
They overlapped in Jackson's last year and Cam's first year of college.Smart player can shoot wonder if Cam Johnson knows him?
Head scratching, because seems he’s more of what we need and more nba than Wain
We don't have guys out with covid anymore so our covid exemptions are gone.
Like Mainstreet said, Wainwright is on a 2 way contract which Jackson isn't eligible for. Also, if the rumor (or supposition) that Justin isn't vaccinated is true, that might explain why we are reluctant to waive someone to bring him in on more than a 10 day contract.Head scratching, because seems he’s more of what we need and more nba than Wain
I was looking towards Justin Jackson being more of a replacement for Abdel Nader unless the Suns are planning for a different move.
Of course Nader is on a guaranteed minimum contract. He would have to be waived or traded.
I might add, Jackson is not eligible for a two-way contract which Wainright is on.
Apparently we need Nader's approval to trade him. At least that's what ESPN said in an article. It may happen but I wouldn't be surprised if he's waived also since next season isn't guaranteed. That is if we're after a roster spot.
