Jenkins signed a contract Monday with Spanish club CB Miraflores of the Liga ACB, freelance reporter David Pick reports.

EDGE Analysis

A first-round pick of the Hawks in 2012, Jenkins will head overseas after five years of limited success as a three-point specialist at the NBA level. Given his pedigree, Jenkins could immediately become one of the top scorers in Spain, which may allow him to attract some NBA attention next summer.

Jenkins agreed to a training camp deal with the Hawks on Sunday, Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins locked up one of the last roster spots with the Suns a season ago, but ended up taking part in just four games before being waived in January. He'll now join Atlanta for training camp ahead of the upcoming campaign, though he faces an uphill battle for making the final roster. Even if he does make the team, Jenkins would likely just fill a role as a deep reserve, which should keep him off the fantasy radar.

Jenkins was waived by the Suns on Friday, ESPN.com's Marc Stein reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins has been outside coach Earl Watson's rotation all season, appearing in just four contests and averaging 3.3 minutes per game. With the rebuilding Suns determining that Jenkins wasn't a part of their long-term plans, they decided to cut bait in order to free up a roster spot for another player.

Jenkins (coach's decision) didn't see the court in Tuesday's 112-105 loss to the Jazz.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins is buried on the depth chart at shooting guard and the Suns haven't dealt with any extensive injuries at the position, so he's had few chances to play this season. He's only appeared in three of the team's 21 games, logging a grand total of 10 minutes.

Jenkins has made the Suns' final 15-man roster, Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

After being released by the Mavericks in February, Jenkins was claimed by the Suns and was with the team throughout the offseason and into training camp. His contract for the upcoming season was not guaranteed and his chances of making the final roster appeared slim, but after the Suns opted to surprisingly release Archie Goodwin earlier Monday, Jenkins roster spot, as well as his contract, are now slated to become guaranteed. He's expected to operate in a depth role in the backcourt during the 2016-17 campaign, but remains a bit buried and likely will struggle to see fantasy worthy minutes in his time off the bench.

Jenkins (abdomen) participated in Monday's scrimmage, Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins sat out the Suns' last two preseason games while nursing an abdomen injury, but is now back to full strength. He should be available for Friday's preseason finale versus the Lakers and will need to have a strong showing, as it will be his last chance to prove he deserves a spot on the final regular season roster.

Jenkins (abdomen) has been ruled out for Friday's preseason game against the Mavericks, Paul Coro of AZCentral.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Missing yet another game is not good for Jenkins and his chances of securing a roster spot before the start of the regular season. With an entire week before the Suns play their next preseason game, Jenkins should have plenty of time to nurse the abdominal strain, but in competing with rookie Derrick Jones Jr. for the final roster spot and playing on a non-guaranteed contract, Jenkins will want to get back on the court as soon as possible.

Jenkins has been ruled out for Wednesday's preseason game against the Jazz with an abdominal strain, Paul Coro of AZCentral.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

When exactly the shooting suffered from the ab strain is currently unknown, but he should be considered day-to-day at this point. Jenkins is buried on a Suns team that has good depth in their backcourt, so barring any major injuries, his impact this season should be fairly minimal.

Jenkins tallied 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-3 3Pt), eight rebounds and two assists over 29 minutes in Friday's 116-94 loss to the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

Getting the starting nod in place of Brandon Knight (illness), Jenkins acquitted himself well overall. He couldn't do much on the ball distribution end, but did assert himself on the glass with eight rebounds. Acquired from the Mavericks on Feb. 25, Jenkins now has three double-digit scoring outings in a Suns uniform, although Friday marked his first start. He could be in line for a second straight night of run with the first unit if Knight is forced to miss Saturday's tilt versus the Celtics.

Jenkins will draw the rare start Friday against the Kings, James Ham of the Bay Area Comcast Sports Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins is getting the start because Brandon Knight was a late scratch due to an illness. Backup point guard Ronnie Price is dealing with an illness as well. Jenkins will get a rare opportunity to shine in this one. Since joining the Suns on Feb. 25, Jenkins is averaging 4.6 points, 1.3 rebounds, and 0.8 steals in 10.8 minutes.
