Nets' Keita Bates-Diop: Slated to debut Saturday
Bates-Diop (recently traded) will be available for Saturday's game against the Spurs, NBA writer Billy Reinhardt reports.
Bates-Diop wasn't able to make his team debut Thursday since his trade was still pending, but he's been cleared to suit up a few days later. He saw inconsistent playing time to close out his time in Phoenix, so it's unclear how many minutes he'll garner off the bench with the Nets.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Keita Bates-Diop: Headed to Brooklyn
Bates-Diop was traded from the Suns to the Nets along with Jordan Goodwin as part of a three-team deal that sent Yuta Watanabe and Chimezie Metu to Memphis, and David Roddy and Royce O'Neale to Phoenix, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
Bates-Diop had relatively consistent minutes for the Suns early in the season, but his playing time fluctuated over the past few weeks. He'll now attempt to carve out a reserve role in Brooklyn, but it seems unlikely that he'll be a significant contributor as long as the team is relatively healthy.... See More ... See Less
Suns' Keita Bates-Diop: Gets double-digit minutes again
Bates-Diop tallied five points (2-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block across 18 minutes in Monday's 115-113 win over the Bulls.
After he looked to be on the fringes of the Phoenix rotation last week, Bates-Diop has now logged double-digit minutes off the bench in consecutive games. He looks to have at least temporarily reclaimed a spot on the second unit, though Bates-Diop could find himself as the odd man out once Eric Gordon (wrist) and Bol Bol (foot) -- both of whom were sidelined Monday -- are back in action....

Suns' Keita Bates-Diop: Quiet in 17 minutes
Bates-Diop amassed three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and two steals across 17 minutes during Monday's 109-88 victory over Portland.
The Suns were missing Kevin Durant (hamstring) on Monday, but Bates-Diop only picked up a few extra minutes. Bol Bol was the biggest beneficiary, as he nearly double-doubled in 20 minutes with 11 points, nine rebounds and one assist. Bates-Diop hasn't eclipsed 20 minutes in a single game since Nov. 26, and he'll likely remain a fringe rotation player going forward.... See More ... See Less

Bates-Diop supplied 13 points (5-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT) and two rebounds in 18 minutes during Thursday's 132-121 loss to San Antonio.
The Suns fell behind early in Thursday's matchup, and although they mounted a comeback bid in the second half, Bates-Diop saw extended run for the first time this season after appearing in just one of the team's first four games of the year. The 27-year-old was efficient with his double-digit minutes, tying for the highest scoring total among the team's bench players. While he showed what he can do with ample playing time Thursday, it seems unlikely that he'll be part of the team's rotation regularly.... See More ... See Less
