The 6-5 shooting guard has been chasing his NBA dream since going undrafted out of Temple University in 2009. He played internationally for multiple years, most recently in Italy, but has kept his eyes on his main goal the entire time. "To have an opportunity like this to fulfill my dream and play in the NBA, it's always been kind of like a no-brainer for me," Christmas told CSNNE.com in a telephone interview Friday evening after signing the multi-year contract. "I worked hard all my life to get to the NBA, so when a team like this comes where I actually have the opportunity to play, that's always the top priority for me. I have been overseas for some time now, but I'm trying to make the NBA my home and hopefully Phoenix can be my home for the next couple of years. I can't wait until everything starts." CSNNE.com

Christmas signed a multi-year contract with a small guarantee on the first season, a deal that is similar in structure to what he had with Boston last year. Suns general manager Ryan McDonough was with Boston last year, when Christmas was waived during the preseason. “He was a key contributor for our Las Vegas Summer League team and his scoring ability, leadership and toughness will help us this season,” McDonough said in a prepared statement.
