I resisted the urge to write that headline as “Suns sign Millsap for remainder of season.” I think I should get some points for that.
Sources: Suns signing former NBA guard Elijah Millsap of D-League, younger brother of Hawks star Paul Millsap, for rest of the season.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) April 9, 2017
Millsap has been with the Northern Arizona Suns all season long, and he’s played well. In 50 games he averages just a hair under 20 points per contest. A week ago he put together his top scoring effort of 2016-17, 38 points against the Reno Bighorns.
The University of Alabama-Birmingham product has been up to the big league before. 67 games with the Utah Jazz. In his NBA career he averages 4.2 points in 16.4 minutes.
The final home game for your Phoenix Suns is tonight against the Dallas Mavericks. Tip is scheduled for 6p ET. They’ll wrap up the 2016-17 campaign on Tuesday with a road date against the Sacramento Kings.
