Phoenix Suns sign forward Ishmail Wainright to 2-way contract
The Phoenix Suns have signed forward Ishmail Wainright to a two-way contract, according to the team.
Wainright, 27, was recently on the Toronto Raptors’ training camp roster, fighting for one of their last roster spots before being waived on Sunday.
The four-year player out of Baylor went undrafted in 2017 before going on to play professionally overseas for the next three seasons in Germany and France.
The Suns’ summer league roster this past offseason consisted of mostly players with international experience and little to none in the NBA, which is the profile that Wainright fits.
Wainright fills the Suns’ second two-way spot, with the other being taken by wing Chandler Hutchison.
Phoenix’s roster will now be at 16 players. One spot on the regular 15-man roster remains open.
