The Phoenix Suns announced on Wednesday that they had signed Paris Bass on a second 10-day contract.
Bass was originally signed from the hardship waiver on Dec. 31, one of five additions the Suns made to the league’s streamlined rules to allow teams to field more players when their roster is impacted by COVID-19.
The Suns had originally let MJ Walker and Bass’ 10-day contracts expire before bringing Bass back a few days later. He joins forward Justin Jackson as an additional roster spot as center Bismack Biyombo’s contract left him bottom of the 15 on the roster during the regular season.
Bass played in two games for the Suns, both appearances taking place during trash time.
Phoenix left Toronto with a win Tuesday despite losing four wings: Cam Johnson (left ankle sprain), Ish Wainright (health and safety protocols), Abdel Nader (right knee injury management) and Jackson (not on the team). ).
The Suns play the second game of their five-game road trip against the Indiana Pacers on Friday. Tip-Off is set for 5:00 p.m. on ESPN 620 AM and 98.7 FM HD-2.
