Suns Ink Guard Dionte Christmas to Deal
The Suns’ training camp just got a little more competitive.
With seven guards already under contract, the Suns signed shooting guard Dionte Christmas on Friday after he showed his pure scoring ability on their NBA Summer League entry in July.
Christmas, a 6-foot-5 guard who has improved tremendously on defense since his Temple years, averaged 10.1 points in only 20.9 minutes per game over seven reserve appearances in Las Vegas. He shot 46 percent from the field and 32 percent on 3-pointers, showing an adept ability to quickly get his shot off and to score in catch-and-shoot situations.
