Weems has not played (coach's decision) in each of the team's past two games. Weems was already playing limited minutes for the Suns, playing under 10 minutes per game in November, but he has now been surpassed by Archie Goodwin. And given Phoenix's backcourt depth, neither is a legitimate fantasy option.
The Suns signed guard/forward Sonny Weems , General Manager Ryan McDonough announced on Friday. Weems has played for CSKA Moscow in the Euroleague the last three years, averaging 13.0 points. He last played in the NBA for Toronto in 2011. "Sonny Weems has been one of the best players outside of the NBA over the past few years," McDonough said. "We've seen him dominate high-level competition at both ends of the floor and we think his versatility and experience help solidify our wing rotation."
The Toronto Sun reports the Raptors have withdrawn their qualifying offer for Sonny Weems, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Sonny Weems, who is a free agent, will not play in the NBA this season. Weems will play in Lithuania without an out clause this season. Weems hopes to return to the NBA next year. "I will be going back to the NBA unless I get an offer in Europe that I can't refuse," said Weems.
After his best season as a pro, Raptors guard Sonny Weems is heading into free agency as a restricted player. Toronto will have the opportunity to match any offer that Weems receives from other teams. He's made his stake for a solid deal after improving in each of his first three seasons in the NBA. Weems did deal with some injury issues that caused him to miss 23 games on the year, including the team's final three. Still, he managed to score a career-best 9.2 points per game with a respectable 44 percent shooting from the floor.
