Darius Bazley was traded to the Suns by the Thunder before the trade deadline but has found himself in difficult situation due to the depth of the team at his position.
The 22-year-old power forward has appeared in just three games for Phoenix since the trade – twice against his former team.
He is averaging 3.3 points and 2 rebounds in 8 minutes per game for the Suns. Phoenix’s head coach Monty Williams admits that his new player is in a difficult situation.
Via Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman:
“He understands where he is in our program. I’ve talked to him a couple times about how tough it is for him to be traded to a team like our’s that has a number of guys in his spot. He hasn’t been given a fair shot, a shot, anything you want to call it, he hasn’t been given that. But he works his tail off.”
