The Suns waived PG Ish Smith on Tuesday.

Smith's $992k salary was on the verge of becoming fully guaranteed, but Phoenix doesn't have a need for him with Goran Dragic, Isaiah Thomas and possibly Eric Bledsoe in the backcourt. Smith should be able to earn a backup role with an NBA team, but it's not a certainty.

Ish Smith finished Sunday's road victory with eight points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 19 minutes of action.

There was precious little defense being played, which helped Smith's case, and this marks his highest-scoring game since Feb. 28. He did most of his damage in the first half while Eric Bledsoe sat due to foul trouble, and Smith's solid game doesn't have lasting implications.

Ish Smith started at point guard for the Suns on Wednesday vs. the Jazz, finishing with 13 points, eight boards, five assists and two 3-pointers.

He shot 5-of-15 from the field and this 36-minute effort was a little bit of a letdown. Smith was the only point guard on the active roster tonight and he couldn't take advantage of a plus matchup. Goran Dragic (ankle) has a chance to play on Friday vs. the Pelicans, so there's not much incentive to add Smith if he was left on waivers leaving up to tonight.

Ish Smith will start in place of Goran Dragic on Wednesday vs. the Jazz.

He should be extremely busy tonight as the only healthy point guard on the roster. Smith is basically a must-play in daily formats in a terrific matchup, but he may not have value beyond Wednesday night. Archie Goodwin will get in the rotation with a little bit of Dionte Christmas mixed in as well.

Suns backup PG Ish Smith handed out eight assists in just 19 minutes of action on Saturday, earning praise from coach Jeff Hornacek.

"We knew that he could push the ball, knew he could pass it," Hornacek said. "He's a very good ball-handler, obviously. We expected that if we needed him to go in our [up-tempo] style, it would work well." Smith stepped up in the rotation with Eric Bledsoe (knee) ruled out for at least one week, but he's only of interest to deep-league owners in need of assists.

Ish Smith was traded to the Suns on Thursday.

He was acquired by the Bucks during their horrible J.J. Redick trade along with Gustavo Ayon, and now the team essentially has just a 33-year-old Caron Butler to show for it. Smith played just 9.9 minutes per game last season, making only 35.2 percent of his shots. Even though he's guaranteed $985K this year, the 25-year-old guard is unlikely to get many minutes and may not be in the rotation.
