Zabian Dowdell Not Resigned by Phoenix

When former Hokie and All-ACC First Teamer Zabian Dowdell’s 10-day contract ran out on January 19th, the Phoenix Suns elected not to sign him to another 10-day contract or for the rest of the season. ?Dowdell played in two games – 4 points in 12 minutes in a woodshed beating, and going 0/1 in 1 minute against Portland.

Unfortunately, it might be back to the D-League and the Tulsa 66ers for Dowdell.

    I read somewhere that he might rejoin the Suns after they finished their road trip. From the boxscores, he looked good in everything but scoring if I recall correctly. Would certainly bring better defense than they’re capable of playing right now. Everyone has an off shooting night now and then, so 1-6 and 0-1 (from memory) in two nights seems like an awfully small sample size to make a decision off of. Of course we don’t know what he looked like in their practices.
