Suns announce Vegas Summer League Roster and Schedule

The Phoenix Suns take the floor for the Las Vegas Summer League starting July 11th through the 21st. This time of year has proven to be very beneficial for players to make a name for themselves that carry over to the NBA season. That can bee seen by two players on this current summer league roster as Dionte Christmas’ performance last season aided on him making the team last season and the performance of Miles Plumlee (with Indiana last summer) paved the way for confidence and success.

It is also a great opportunity for recently drafted players to become acclimated with the coaching staff and elevated level of play. Archie Goodwin made a name for himself in a hurry last summer and the same opportunity could present itself for rookies Tyler Ennis and T.J. Warren.
