After joining the Suns on a hardship exception, guard Isaiah Canaan will remain with in Phoenix after reportedly being signed to a minimum deal. To make room for Canaan, the Suns will reportedly waive guard Mike James, who was signed to a standard contract on Dec. 7 after his two-way contract expired on Dec. 6. Canaan was signed with the Suns on a hardship waiver due to the injuries to Devin Booker and Davon Reed. Now, he will reportedly remain with the Suns after averaging 13 points per game along with five assists over the course of four games with Phoenix. After Canaan scored a career high 17 points in the Suns’ win over Dallas on Monday, Suns GM Ryan McDonough spoke highly of the 26-year-old guard, eluding to a contract that would keep him in Phoenix for the remainder of the season.
