The Suns and Elie Okobo have agreed to terms on a 4-year, $6 million rookie contract with team options for the last two years of the deal.
Okobo will likely be the backup this season since they might not keep Tyler Ulis, so he will have the opportunity to show if he is worthy of playing time. He is a raw prospect with high potential that the Suns took the risk on. Okobo is one of three rookies that the Suns drafted this year and he will likely have the smallest role of the three. However, he should be able to contribute more if he proves he can play well in his bench role.
