Phoenix Suns have parted ways with former Baskonia and Panathinaikos guard Mike James.

This despite the Suns signing James to a two-way contract. They release him as Phoenix have given more playing time to Isaiah Canaan.

“Mike established himself as an NBA player here and our partnership proved to be beneficial,” Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said.

“Mike had a handful of 20-point games and helped us win a few games. We wish Mike the best as he works to find another home.”
