When the Phoenix Suns signed Mike James to a two-way contract over the summer, they had Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight and Devin Booker in the fold.

With each of these players unavailable or off the roster, the Suns have had to use James more than they planned. As a result, the rookie guard will have his two-way deal converted into a regular NBA contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports.

This means the Suns are going to have to part ways with one of their active-roster players to get down to 15. Wojnarowski reports the team plans such a move by Thursday morning.
