Phoenix Suns Waive Three Players to Trim Preseason Roster

The Phoenix Suns have waived center Gracin Bakumanya, forward Derek Cooke Jr. and guard Shaquille Harrison.

Bakumanya, Cooke and Harrison originally signed with the Suns on Sept. 25. The three players did not appear in any of the team’s first three preseason games.

The Suns’ roster now stands at 16 players. Teams are permitted to carry up to 15 players on their regular season roster.

Phoenix returns to the court this week for a pair of preseason games. The Suns travel to Utah on Wednesday to take on the Jazz before returning home on Friday to face the Mavericks in their final home game before the regular season.

That matchup at Talking Stick Resort Arena will be streamed live on and the Suns' official mobile app beginning at 7 p.m. for fans living in the Phoenix area.
