In the past two days, the Phoenix Suns have shut down a pair of point guards - Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight - for the rest of the season.
The only real point guard remaining on active duty is rookie Tyler Ulis.
They are a bit short on big men too, given that Tyson Chandler is no longer going to play this year.
The most well-stocked positions on the team at the moment are the swing positions: small forward (T.J. Warren and rookie Derrick Jones Jr.) and shooting guard (Devin Booker and Leandro Barbosa).
So the Suns signed a swing man.
The Phoenix Suns plan to sign forward Jarell Eddie of D-League's Windy City on a 10-day contract, league sources tell @TheVertical.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) March 19, 2017
Jarell Eddie, 24, is a 6’7” shooter who’s been shooting at a high level in the D-League and has played most recently for the Washington Wizards.

Excellent shooting ability, shows flashes of passing ability as well. https://t.co/8VSbsA0wib— The Bright Side (@BrightSideSun) March 19, 2017
Eddie is taking more than 6 threes per game in the D-League this year, making 41% of them, and averaging 14 points.
The Suns have 14 games left in the season, beginning on Sunday night against the Detroit Pistons.
