Jarell Eddie Drains the 3-pointer

No Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker, Tyson Chandler, Brandon Knight, Dragan Bender, Leandro Barbosa or Ronnie Price.

The Suns faced off against the Detroit Pistons on Sunday with just eight men in their rotation. This included newly-signed Jarell Eddie coming off the bench.

Eddie played 29 minutes in his first game wearing a Suns jersey, scoring 13 points with two three-pointers. He has spent most of his three-year career in the NBA Developmental League, but played 26 games with the Washington Wizards last season.

He was the three-point shootout champion at the 2015 NBA D-League All-Star Game while he was on the Austin Spurs. Head Coach Earl Watson was one of his assistant coaches with Austin at the time.
