You had a pretty good feeling former Ohio State sharpshooter Duane Washington would find another NBA suitor before too long. That’s exactly what happened on Tuesday when the Phoenix Suns reportedly inked the former Buckeye start to a two-way deal. The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Washington declared for the 2020 NBA draft a year early but had to settle for a two-way deal with the Indiana Pacers as an undrafted free agent. He found some success with the Pacers and even did enough to sign a real, live, multiple-year deal with the team before being waved in mid-July because of business decisions with cap space.

Now, after averaging 9.9 points per contest with the Pacers, Washington will get another shot with a Suns team that could use his hot outside shooting to bolster the offense.
