Our favorite denim-clad athlete has been playing very well for the Phoenix Suns’ summer league team. After a cold start, Jorts has scored 28 points and collected 15 rebounds during the team’s last two games – while only playing a total of 30 minutes.
His play is gaining him fans in Phoenix – including this Sun’s writer Gerald Bourguet, who thinks Josh deserves a training camp invite. Though the Suns already have Alex Len and Tyson Chandler, Bourguet says that Harrelson’s shooting, rebounding, and nickname make him a worthy third-string option.
If Jorts can somehow make Phoenix’s roster, the Suns should go ahead and start scheduling games in Rupp.
