The Phoenix Suns, as expected, waived three camp players on non-guaranteed contracts today.

Jamil Wilson, Joe Jackson and Casey Prather are no longer going to wear Phoenix Suns uniforms for the foreseeable future. Jackson and Prather got playing time in Monday's loss, while Wilson played last week. None were expected to make a team already loaded with 15 guaranteed contracts that are three-deep at every position.

All three, however, can be signed to play with the Bakersfield Jam this season. The Jam is the Suns' exclusive affiliate in the NBA D-League, and will run the basketball operations for the team.

NBA Training Camp Allocations: Up to three players released from the roster of an NBA team before the D-League Draft can be allocated to that team's D-League affiliate provided they sign the standard D-League contract. They are known as "affiliate players."

By waiving the players during training camp, the Suns now have the ability to keep them in Bakersfield, but they are under no obligation.
