John Jenkins did not ensure his Suns future by extending his contract-guarantee date, but he would rather continue pursuing a future in Phoenix than be a free agent to 29 other teams. Jenkins faced the prospect of being waived before his 2016-17 salary became guaranteed Monday, but he agreed with the Suns to delay the date until October. Jenkins will participate in the Suns’ training camp. “I’m good here,” Jenkins said while attending the Suns’ NBA Summer League games in Las Vegas. “I love the vision. I love the direction. When I heard it may happen, I wanted it to happen. My agent loved the idea.” The Suns claimed Jenkins, 25, off waivers from Dallas on Feb. 24 and inherited a contact that has non-guaranteed years of $1.05 million for 2016-17 and $1.18 million for 2017-18.
