Iffe Lundberg stayed in Phoenix planning to play for the Suns in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, but he needed “security” for that to happen. Without a guaranteed deal, Lundberg headed back to Denmark ahead of the Suns beginning Summer League play Friday against the Los Angeles Lakers at Thomas & Mack Center.
“I didn’t want to risk playing in the Summer League without having some kind of security,” Lundberg told the Republic on Monday. “They didn’t want to give me that, so I went home. I can’t risk getting injured without having a deal. My family depends on me to provide for them.”
