Report: Suns release rookie guard James

Mike James was waived by the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday.

The Phoenix Suns are releasing guard Mike James, according to a report by Yahoo Sports.

James is a 27-year-old rookie and averaging 10.4 points and 3.8 assists on the season. His two-way contract was converted into an NBA deal in early December.

“Mike established himself as an NBA player here and our partnership proved to be beneficial,” Suns general manager Ryan McDonough told Yahoo Sports. “Mike had a handful of 20-point games and helped us win a few games. We wish Mike the best as he works to find another home.”

James’ deal has no more guaranteed money but odds are he will land with another team.

    Why can’t we get a player like Jordan bell who scores 20 pt. We only have Lebron and Love doing that. The other players if they are lucky scores only from 10 -15 points. We will not win the championship unless a miracle happen that they can shoot well.Sorry cavaliers. I am a realist but still hoping.
