Ish Wainright is due to make a comeback to the Phoenix Suns on a two-way contract. This has been revealed in a tweet made by Shams Charania of The Athletic. The contract deal was confirmed by Wainwright’s two agents, Jim Tanner and Deirunas Visockas of Tandem.
The power forward, Ish Wainright, 27, made his NBA debut last season after three years of playing outside the NBA. He went to training camp with the Raptors, but was waived before the start of the season.
Five days later, Phoenix signed him to a two-way contract, which was converted to a standard deal on the final day of the regular season.
The former Baylor star appeared in 45 games as a rookie and averaged 2.4 points and 1.2 rebounds in 8.0 minutes per night. He got into seven playoff games, but saw just 3.7 minutes per contest.
Wainright plays national basketball for Uganda. He scored 36 points and collected 13 rebounds in his national team debut in a win over Cape Verde in November 2020. He was also on the roster during the 2021 AfroBasket tournament held in Rwanda.
Meanwhile, the Suns, earlier in the day, signed another two-way contract with Duane Washington Jr.
Therefore, the number of new contracts deals signed by the Suns on August 3, 2022, amounts to two.
