The Suns waived center Garret Siler after Monday's game, putting the roster at the 13-man minimum. Siler was a project when he signed a two-year contract last season, but this season's salary was not guaranteed. Siler, 25, played in 21 games last season but had not played this season. He would have been a likely choice to be inactive once guard Michael Redd is ready to play. Redd had his first workout with the Suns on Monday after returning from Columbus, Ohio. He will participate in his first practice Tuesday and figures to be at least a week away from playing. Arizona Republic

If the season is canceled, Siler has a backup plan. Overseas teams, including his former squad in Shanghai, are offering him a chance to play. Siler, though, is still under contract with the Suns for the 2011-12 season, the final year of his contract. "If the situation permits it, then I'll go," he said. "I don't want to leave. But the option is there." Augusta Chronicle

The Phoenix Suns knew Garret Siler was a project when they invited him to training camp this fall, and after seemingly doing everything they could in practice, Suns brass has decided to send Siler to the NBA D-League for the next stage in the big man's development. Siler, a behemoth listed at 6-foot-11 and 305 pounds, will fly to Bismarck, North Dakota, to join the Suns' D-League affiliate Iowa Energy for a game against the Dakota Wizards on Monday night. It will be his first game action in nearly a month; the last time he had actual game action was in a Dec. 5 victory against the Washington Wizards where Siler scored three points and grabbed three rebounds in just three minutes of court time.

Suns rookie center Garret Siler has been assigned to D-League affiliate Iowa. Siler has made six appearances for 35 minutes with the Suns but not played in a game since Dec. 5. He was the lone inactive player for the win against Philadelphia on Friday, when rookie power forward Gani Lawal made his pro debut in the final two minutes. The Suns are carrying the minimum allowed 13 players. Without Siler, all 12 remaining players will be on the active roster for tonight's game at Sacramento. Teams are allowed to begin signing players to 10-day contracts on Wednesday. Arizona Republic

Suns General Manager Lance Blanks' first stamp on his new team is a large one in the literal sense. Short of bringing back Shaquille O'Neal, the Suns could not do much more about adding size than inviting Garret Siler to next week's training camp. Siler joined Phoenix's informal workouts Monday after accepting a contract that likely has no guaranteed money past the preseason, much like his competitor for a roster spot, Dwayne Jones. Siler, 23, is a 6-foot-11, 300-pound center who is fine with being considered a "work in progress" because he has been one since he began college. Arizona Republic
