Suns Waive Sullinger, Scott; Sign Ronnie Price

FEBRUARY 24, 5:52pm: The Suns have waived Mike Scott and Jared Sullinger while signing Ronnie Price for the remainder of the season, the team announced through a press release.

FEBRUARY 23, 9:00pm: The Suns will waive Jared Sullinger and Mike Scott, both acquired in trades today, and plan to sign Ronnie Price for the rest of the season, tweets Doug Haller of AZ Central Sports.

Phoenix received Sullinger and two second-round draft picks from Toronto in exchange for P.J. Tucker. Sullinger missed most of the season after foot surgery in October and played in just 11 games for the Raptors.

Scott was acquired from Atlanta along with the draft rights to Cenk Akyol and cash considerations in exchange for a protected second-round pick. This was Scott’s fifth season with the Hawks, but he had fallen out of the rotation and appeared in just 18 games.

Price had signed two 10-day contracts with the Suns, with the last one expiring February 15th. The 33-year-old point guard saw action in just two games.

    I can understand getting rid of Scott but i would have gave Sull a chance.

      it was a deal and dump trade. it was already going to happen. no need to give him a chance

    • Mike_Davis

      The team has young players who they need to play. He was only acquired to match salaries.

      Why? He is overweight and doesn’t fit in with the suns plans or rotation.

    I almost wonder if the Celtics will explore a Sully reunion. He’s not spectacular by any means, but he can rebound here and there.

      Boston let him go for a reason. He hasn’t played most of this year, until recently, because of foot and back problems. Some team may take a flyer on him, never know.

        Well thing is like can he really be worse than a Tyler Zeller or Jordan Mickey? Remember he was a starter for the Cs last year. The fit is actually there? I don’t necessarily endorse it (I endorse Bogut to Boston myself), but I can definitely see a reunion.

    I think there’s some Derrick Williams overlap there, making it appear a tough fit

    Sullinger will go to Cavs for a small salary and free cereals! Mark my words the Cavs will go to the WNBA Finals!!!$#$$#%
