Phoenix Suns assign rookie forward Jalen Smith to G League


PHOENIX — The Suns have assigned rookie forward Jalen Smith to the NBA’s G League.

The No. 10 overall draft pick out of Maryland hasn’t played much this season for Phoenix, which has won six consecutive games and has a 17-9 record. Smith has appeared in eight games and is averaging 1.8 points and 1.3 rebounds.

Smith, 20, was inactive for Sunday night’s game against the Orlando Magic. The Suns recently had several players return from injuries, which made the 6-foot-10 Smith’s path to playing time even harder.

Smith will play for the Agua Caliente Clippers, the affiliate of the LA Clippers. The league’s games are being played this season near Orlando, Florida, at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
