The Suns have waived John Jenkins, according to John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM (Twitter link). The move will bring the team’s roster count to 14 players.
Jenkins’ minimum salary contract was partially guaranteed and this year’s salary would have became fully guaranteed had he remained on the roster through Saturday. He hasn’t seen much playing time for the Suns this season, scoring a total of seven points in 13 minutes of action.
Phoenix had claimed Jenkins off waivers after the Mavericks let the shooting guard go during the middle of last season. He was originally drafted by the Hawks with the No.23 overall pick in the 2012 draft.
