The Phoenix Suns (hereafter referred to as the Phoenix) proceeded to cover the boulders for the prospects.
On the morning of the 2nd (Korean time), Phoenix released Duane Washington Jr. (22) through the official social network service (SNB) and announced that it had signed a two-way contract with Saven Lee (23).
Washington Jr. was released due to the sign-and-trade of Deandre Ayton, which Indiana was trying to promote, and signed a two-way contract with Phoenix last August.
Washington Jr. played 31 games for Phoenix this season, averaging 12.7 minutes, averaging 7.9 points and 2 assists. He showed off his individual scoring ability and shooting flair at Phoenix.
However, what Phoenix needed was not scoring power, but the ability to lead bench time in place of Chris Paul and Devin Booker. Washington Jr. was gradually lost and released from Phoenix for this reason.
Meanwhile, Lee plays at the point guard position at 6 feet 2 inches and 183 pounds (188 cm; 83 kg). He signed a three-year contract with the Detroit Pistons last year in recognition of his leadership ability. 스포츠토토
Later, Lee was released as soon as the team moved to the Utah Jazz in return for the Boyan Bogdanovich trade. Immediately, Lee signed a contract with the Toronto Raptors, but was released on the same day and signed a two-way contract with the Philadelphia 76ers. However, Lee was released from Philadelphia a month after signing the contract and signed a first 10-day contract with Phoenix on the 11th of last month.
Seizing an opportunity as Washington Junior lost his place, Lee played 10 games in a Phoenix uniform. He played an average of 17.3 minutes, 7 points, 3.3 assists, 45.5% field goal success rate (4.4 attempts), 50% 3-point success rate (0.6 successes), and 77.4% free throw success rate (3.1 attempts).
In particular, Lee committed 1.1 turnovers while recording 3.3 assists. Therefore, Lee’s assist-to-turnover ratio is 3. This means that Lee has excellent leadership ability to lead the game stably.
As a result, Phoenix took notice of Lee’s talent and signed another 10-day contract. And they released Washington Jr., a two-way contract, and filled the spot with Lee.
Meanwhile, Phoenix this season is in seventh place in the Western Conference with a record of 27 wins and 25 losses. After the recent slump, they have succeeded in rebounding and once again aim for the upper ranks in the West.
