Christmas: Patience with Suns Paid Off
(Dionte) Christmas received multiple offers to return overseas and estimates five NBA training camp offers as well. He liked the Suns, though, and was willing to give them time.
Waiting would pay off, he believed.
“Phoenix told me to be patient,” he said. “When the whole Mike Beasley thing happened (the Suns waived Beasley on September 3), they kept in contact with my agent every day and they told me to come out. It was a blessing. I was being patient, I wasn’t rushing anything. I had a lot of overseas deals, a lot of camp offers, but Phoenix was at the top of my list. I was just really waiting for them.”
