After we heard earlier today that the Suns had added a handful of players to their training camp roster, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic adds another name to the list. According to Coro, Ike Diogu will also be part of the team's camp roster and will compete for a regular-season roster spot.
Diogu, the ninth overall pick in 2005, has appeared in 225 games over his NBA career, averaging 6.0 PPG and 3.1 RPG in 12.4 MPG for the Warriors, Pacers, Blazers, Kings, Clippers, and Spurs. The former Arizona State star also played for Nigeria at this summer's Olympics, averaging 14.8 PPG and 9.0 RPG for his country.
The signing brings the Suns' roster count to 18 players, including six who are on non- or partially-guaranteed contracts, so Diogu should have a reasonable chance at earning a roster spot.
