Mike Moser, Shaquille Harrison, and Derrick Jones Jr. That’s the three guys who will be joining the Phoenix Suns when they open training camp at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff.
Moser, 25, is likely a familiar name for basketball fans in Arizona. In 2008 he dropped his committment to the University of Arizona following Lute Olson’s retirement, and instead committed to Pac-12 rival UCLA. A forgettable season with the Bruins led to a two seasons at UNLV where he was named All-American honorable mention as a sophomore. After graduating at UNLV he played a season at Oregon. He’s a 6-foot-8, 225 pound power forward who shot 38 percent from three while with the Ducks. He last played in Israel.
Jones played one season at UNLV before the NCAA opened a case involving his ACT stores as a senior at Archbishop John Carroll High School in Radnor, Pennsylvania. The investigation resulted in termination of his eligibility late in the season and Jones declared for the 2016 NBA Draft where he was not selected. He’s quick but light at 6-foot-7, 190 pounds and doesn’t have much of an outside shot.
Harrison, 23, played four seasons at Tulsa before going undrafted this summer. The Suns are familiar with him, he worked out in Phoenix before the draft. He’s a 6-foot-4, 190 pound point guard whose poor shooting is holding him back.
2016 Phoenix Suns training camp gets started on September 27th.
