Phoenix Suns Sign Point Guard Phil Pressey To 10-Day Contract

New, comments

The Suns are churning the bottom of the roster again. Meet the newest Phoenix Sun, Phil Pressey.

Today, the Phoenix Suns have reportedly signed Phil Pressey, a 25 year old point guard formerly from the University of Missouri who also played brief stints with the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers, to a 10 day contract.

Pressey was waived this past December from his last NBA team, the Sixers, before signing with the Idaho Stampede in the NBA D-League.

The former Mizzou point guard averaged 3.9 points and 3.3 assists in just over 12 minutes of play with the Sixers before being released.

Without Eric Bledsoe, and Brandon Knight's injury still lingering, the Suns are still looking for a capable back-up to pair with Archie Goodwin and Ronnie Price. Jordan McRae's 10-day contract expired after last night's game against the Rockets, and this seems to indicate that the Suns are moving onto the next hopeful.

As for Pressey, time will tell how much he'll play or contribute, if much at all, but he certainly has a chance to stick on a roster like Phoenix's which is looking for some sort of stability.

I actually covered him as being a possibility for the Suns to draft with their 57th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft (Hello, Alex Oriakhi). For a detailed breakdown of Pressey's game, and his combine measurements, read here.

Good luck Phil...Let's see what you've got!
