The Suns have waived camp invitee James Nunnally, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic (via Twitter). Nunnally represented the most obvious cut on the team’s roster, since he was the only player on a fully non-guaranteed contract.
Nunnally played for the Suns’ D-League affiliate, the Bakersfield Jam, last season, averaging 10.3 PPG in 49 contests. The 23-year-old also joined the Heat’s Summer League squad this July before eventually signing a camp deal with Phoenix.
With Nunnally no longer on their books, the Suns are down to 17 players, meaning they’ll have to cut at least two more before opening night. Phoenix is carrying 16 players on fully guaranteed contracts, along with Dionte Christmas on a partially guaranteed deal, so in all likelihood the team will have to eat some salary in order to get down to 15 players.
