David Pick is reporting that someone else is reporting that University of Virginia product Darion Atkins will be added to the Phoenix Suns Summer League roster.

The 2015 ACC Defensive Player of the Year went undrafted that year before signing with the Summer Spurs. He’d catch on with the Knicks, appearing in three preseason games before joining their D, now G, league affiliate in Westchester.

Atkins was named an Israeli Basketball Super League All-Star last season.
