Adjust your fantasy training camp rosters. The Phoenix Suns have extended an invitation to Georgia State University standout R.J. Hunter.

Hunter has bounced around a little bit since being selected by the Boston Celtics with the 28th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.
The two-time Sun Belt Player of the Year bounced back and forth between Boston and the D-League his rookie season before he was waived by the Celtics in October of 2016.
Less than a week later he was signed by Chicago. He was with the Bulls organization for two months before they let him go. He appeared in three games.
Suns training camp runs Tuesday, September 26th to Friday, September 29th. It will be held on the campus of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff for the fifth consecutive year and 21st-time overall.
Update: Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic is reporting that Hunter, along with Isaiah Canaan, Andre Dawkins, and Xavier Silas were in for separate workouts. Hunter has not been officially signed to a training camp deal, but one or two likely join the squad in Flagstaff for camp.
