2016 Digest:   Delisted and re-rookied after a potential trade didn’t come to fruition. Has been a handy performer since joining the Suns as an unheralded recruit in season one. Needs a big year to reach the hallowed 100-game mark and continue his career beyond 2016.

2016 NAB Cup:   Elevated to the senior list as the nominated rookie. Will need a big year though to continue career past 2016.
