Mike James: But i can say nahhhhh
Panathinaikos announced the return of Mike James. The American guard has played with the Greens last season before signing in the NBA with the Suns.
James is expected to officially join Panathinaikos, as club owner Dimitris Giannakopoulos had previously stated. In four games with the Pelicans, he totaled four points and six assists in 18 minutes.

Mike James could be an option for Barcelona, according to El Mundo Deportivo.
“Mike established himself as an NBA player here and our partnership proved to be beneficial,” Suns general manager Ryan McDonough told Yahoo Sports. “Mike had a handful of 20-point games and helped us win a few games. We wish Mike the best as he works to find another home.” James’ release comes as young star Devin Booker and rookie Davon Reed are working to return to the court for the Suns, while Isaiah Canaan also has had strong performances since joining the team on an injury-hardship exemption. Canaan, who’s averaged 13 points and five assists in four games backing up Tyler Ulis, agreed to a minimum deal for the remainder of the season on Friday, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
It took two more years, but James finally made it. Phoenix signed him to a two-way, 45-day contract, but his play already has convinced the Suns that they want to keep him beyond the 45 days. General Manager Ryan McDonough told azcentral sports Friday that he hopes the team can negotiate a deal with James. Maybe then James will look back on what it took him to get here. Then again … “I don’t reflect a lot,” James said. “I probably should. Maybe when I’m retired, I can look back and say I did that and that and that.”

American combo guard Mike James will sign a guaranteed contract with the Phoenix Suns. It’s a deal that takes him away from Europe, where he’s spent the entirety of his career so far, and materializes his dream of playing in the NBA.

James was part of the amazing run of Baskonia the season that ended and now he is ready for the next step in his career as a member of the Greens. The deal signed is valid for next season, will pay him one million euros and also includes an NBA out option for this summer. However, the option can be used only if James gets a guaranteed contract for the NBA, which should be lucrative enough to compete with the deal he got from Panathinaikos.
