The Phoenix Suns had two options on Friday. Guarantee Davon Reed’s contract for the 2018-19 season or don’t. They chose the third option.

The Suns will wait until after NBA Summer League in Las Vegas to determine if Reed will be back for the second year of his four year deal. Year two would pay the University of Miami product $1.37 million.

Reed was the second pick of the second round in the 2017 NBA Draft. He missed the first four months of the 2017-18 season thanks to knee surgery.

He made his Suns debut January 14th against the Indiana Pacers. Reed appeared in 21 games, and averaged three points in 11.5 minutes per contest.

The Suns have the opportunity to evaluate free agency during that time. They have a similar decision to make on Saturday with guard Tyler Ulis who would earn $1.54 million next season.
