Ex-Toronto Raptor Sonny Weems just got a big gift on his 29th birthday—a multi-million dollar entrance back into the League courtesy of the Phoenix Suns.
Weems, who was a second-round pick by Chicago in 2008, played for Denver and Toronto but has been overseas the past four seasons. Playing with CSKA Moscow in Russia the last three years, Weems most notably was able to develop a reliable three-point shot.
Sources: Sonny Weems and Phoenix Suns agree to 2-year deal worth $5.8 million

Like the Sonny Weems signing for PHX. Per 40 pace #s for CSKA last year (57 games, VTB/Euroleague): 20 PTS, 5.4 REB, 5.7 AST, 46 2P%, 40 3P%

Sonny Weems was a nightmare for overseas rivals. Best small-forward outside the NBA. Phoenix bound.
