Tyler Ulis’ guarantee date postponed until next weekend

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Phoenix Suns have pushed Tyler Ulis’ guarantee date on his contract until Saturday. The date was originally set for today.

What this means is that Ulis can be released before next Saturday without any penalty incurred by the Suns. Once Saturday passes, he will be guaranteed $1,544,951.

In his two seasons in Phoenix, the former Cat has averaged 7.6 points and 4.1 assists in just over 21 minutes per game. Due to some injuries, Ulis did start 43 games for the team that finished with the worst record in the NBA.

The Suns have a few options, they can decide to keep Ulis, negotiate a new guarantee date for later in the summer or release him all together.

Phoenix did draft French point guard Elie Okobo in Thursday’s draft. Some believed that this pick was made as the inevitable replacement for the Chicago native.

If the Suns do decide to move on from Ulis, I don’t expect him to remain a free agent for long. With that being said, I would be very disappointed if Phoenix did split up Booker and Ulis.
