The native Phoenician led the Suns with 15 double-doubles overall and ranked third in the NBA with 15 double-doubles off the bench in 2016-17. The third-year pro averaged career-bests of 7.4 points and 6.2 rebounds in 47 total games last season.
The NAZ Suns next play against the Texas Legends tomorrow, Wednesday, March 21 at the Prescott Valley Event Center with tip-off at 6:30 p.m. (Phoenix time).
