Phoenix Suns to sign Jarell Eddie to 10-day contract

NBA: Atlanta Hawks at Washington Wizards Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

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.

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.

Our social media helper, Jake Weingarten, is a long time Wizards fan who shared some thoughts on Eddie on the Bright Side account.

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.
