Suns Hesitant To Commit To 10-Day Signees

Many teams use 10-day contracts as tryouts of sorts for players they’re interested in signing for the rest of the season and beyond. That evidently hasn’t been the case for the Suns this year, who’ve cycled through six players on 10-day contracts this year without signing any of them for the balance of the season. It remains to be seen what they end up doing with Alan Williams, who’s on a 10-day deal that expires after Thursday’s game against the Jazz, but the five other Phoenix 10-day signees have since moved on.

Two of them — Jordan McRae and Orlando Johnson — are with other NBA teams. The Cavs took a much different approach with McRae, signing him to a deal that covers the rest of this season and next after he completed just one 10-day contract, dispensing with the conventional practice of doing a pair of 10-day deals before committing for a longer stretch.

Injuries have surely played into Phoenix’s strategy, as the Suns are missing Eric Bledsoe and T.J. Warren, and they’ve been without Brandon Knight and others for significant stretches of the season. Still, it’s unusual to see a team go through this many 10-day contracts without keeping at least one of the players. Here’s a look at what has happened with each of the players the Suns have had on 10-day deals, with an assist from our 10-Day Contract Tracker:
