The last 5 games he should play 20 minutes a game at least in my book.
That is quite the celebration for a 2 way contract.
Doesn't it expire at season end? If he doesn't get his Visa worked our real soon, he may not even get to play for us this year.
There could be an option for a second year. There usually is in these cases. Ty-Shon Alexander had a deal like that. It keeps them with the team at least through Summer League.
In Iffy's case, he's 27 so I'd imagine this was viewed as sort of a last chance to make it to the NBA also.
All I could find on the contract he signed is that if we choose, he can be restricted this offseason. That could also be if we don't pick up an option. We can then sign him to another Two-Way deal this offseason.
Yep. I did notice that. His outside shot looks effortless. Like he is shooting a five-footer. He doesn't jack-knife his body to get it to the rim. It just floats out of his hands.Here are some interesting comments from a Duane Rankin article at the Arizona Republic regarding Gabriel Lundberg:
“My first name is Gabriel, but my middle name is Iffe."
“He’s got a great body for a guard,” Williams said. “He really shoots the ball a lot better than I anticipated. I didn’t know much about him and when he first got into the gym, I saw how easy he shot the ball. Saw the body. He’s square. He’s got a strong build and that means he can take a pounding when he’s going to the basket."
“I haven’t had enough time to really dive into him on film, but James spoke so highly of him and we wouldn't have him here if we didn't believe he could play," Williams continued. "So we're excited to have a Danish player on our team, but especially in the NBA."
Gabriel Iffe Lundberg has gone from leaving Moscow amid Russia's invasion of the Ukraine to return home to Denmark to joining the Phoenix Suns.www.azcentral.com
Your stay was much to short. Goodbye.
One of the Suns' most recent international players Gabriel "Iffe" Lundberg isn't on the summer league team as expected.
The first Danish player in NBA history was signed in March to this past season's roster after he left playing professionally in Russia in March. But Lundberg said on Sunday he made a family decision to not take the risk playing without a contract and no guaranteed return to the Suns next season.
“I have always said that I would not play in the Summer League if I was not guaranteed a contract," Lundberg said. "I feel it's too big a risk to take, especially with a view to my family's future. I stand by that."
