Pressey wasn't attending training camp with a guaranteed contract, which made him a long shot to open the regular season with a 15-man roster spot. The point guard ended up seeing action in 23 totals games a season ago between the 76ers and Suns, so the door presumably isn't closed on Pressey eventually making his way back to the NBA, be it with the Warriors or another team.
Pressey spent time last season with the 76ers and Suns, appearing in 23 total games and averaging 3.4 points and 3.3 assists per game. The 25-year-old also appeared in 31 games for the Idaho Stampede of the D-League, posting averages of 13.7 points, 6.8 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game. Pressey's chances of cracking the Warriors' final 15-man roster out of camp appear slim at this juncture.
Phil Pressey returned to the D-League's Idaho Stampede last week, Chris Reichert of Upside Motor reports.
The Suns have been cycling in a number of players on 10-day contracts throughout the season, with Pressey earning two such deals with the Suns. However, with Brandon Knight (groin) returning from an extended absence a few games ago, there wasn't really a need for the Suns to sign Pressey for the rest of the season. He'll more than likely finish up the season in the D-League and will hope to receive a training camp invite from an NBA team over the offseason.
Phil Pressey will sign a second 10-day contract with the Phoenix Suns , Craig Grialou of ArizonaSports.com reports.
Brandon Knight (groin) has been ruled out for the Suns' upcoming four-game road trip, and with the team inclined to develop Archie Goodwin as a shooting guard, Pressey will continue to serve as the team's backup point guard behind Ronnie Price. Even once Knight is cleared to return to action, Pressey could still stick with the team in a third-string role for the rest of the season, as the Suns only have 14 players on their roster at the moment.
Phil Pressey scored six points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-5 FT) and added five assists, three blocks, two rebounds, and one steal in 28 minutes during the Phoenix Suns ' 118-111 loss to the Spurs on Sunday.
Pressey turned the ball over four times and committed five fouls, but saw 28 minutes in his Suns' debut thanks in large part to Ronnie Price fouling out in 20 minutes. Suns' interim coach Earl Watson decided not to play Archie Goodwin at point guard on Sunday, and Goodwin split time with Devin Booker at shooting guard, allowing Pressey to earn meaningful minutes. Pressey averaged 3.9 points and 3.3 assists in 12 minutes per contest with the 76ers this season in 14 appearances, and even if Brandon Knight (groin) doesn't end up returning, Pressey is highly unlikely to be worth rostering in fantasy.
