Ish Wainright deserves a new contract from the Phoenix Suns.

On an NBA Summer League roster full of players from different backgrounds, nationalities and levels of experience, Ish Wainright is the lone holdover from the Phoenix Suns’ roster. And despite being the new guy just a few months ago, he’s come to represent this organization’s best case-scenario for player development on the margins.

Ish Wainright may be able to fill the small-ball 5 role for the Phoenix Suns in a pinch.

On the season, Ish Wainright holds averages of 2.2 points and 1.5 rebounds in 7.6 minutes per game. He’s shot 38.5 percent from the field, has only appeared in 23 games for the Phoenix Suns and is playing on a two-way contract that would make him ineligible for the playoffs. But against the San Antonio Spurs Sunday night, and sparingly...

The Phoenix Suns are learning hard but important lessons about their depth with key players out.

Take away two of an NBA team’s best players and you’ll learn a lot about the other guys. Take away two of their best players and several other rotation players, and suddenly things get interesting in a hurry. So far for the Phoenix Suns, the results have been somewhat mixed ever since Devin Booker and then Deandre Ayton went down...
