Basketball: Suns sign Japanese forward Watanabe
The Phoenix Suns have signed Japanese forward Yuta Watanabe, the team announced Tuesday.
The 28-year-old three-point specialist will enter his sixth NBA season with his fourth team.
“Yuta has proven to be one of the best three-point shooters in the league and has the size and ability to defend multiple positions,” Suns General Manager James Jones said in a press release.
Watanabe averaged 5.6 points per game last season playing 58 games for the Brooklyn Nets and making a career-high 44.4 percent of his three-point attempts.
