Sonny Weems believes he can do "a lot more" than what he has shown this season.
"I think I can do a lot more," Weems said. "I think I’m a more complete player than most think I am. It’s still a long season. I still have got time to show the complete game that I have." Weems has scored a combined 22 points over his last two games and played more than 21 minutes in each game, but he could lose minutes with Jordan McRae in town. Owners in deeper leagues can just keep an eye on him for now. Jan 29 - 10:49 AM

Sonny Weems - G/F - Suns

Sonny Weems played 21 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday with two points, one assist and two turnovers.

He might be in the rotation for over 20 minutes going forward because of how thin the Suns are. Weems still has very little per-minute appeal in almost any league.

Sonny Weems - G/F - Suns

Sonny Weems suffered a cut above his right eye on Thursday.

He looked to be fine besides the blood and shouldn't miss time going forward. Weems was the fourth guard on the roster before tonight, but Archie Goodwin leapfrogged him for the time being after the injury to Ronnie Price (concussion). You would have to be in an insanely deep league to add him.

Sonny Weems - G/F - Suns

Sonny Weems handed out eight assists in 28 minutes off the bench on Friday, and also chipped in with five points on 1-of-5 shooting.

Weems played on the ball a lot tonight with Brandon Knight logging just 18 minutes and Eric Bledsoe (stomach virus) taking the night off. Even in the deepest leagues, we're not sure that he's on the radar without a major, unlikely surge.

Sonny Weems - G/F - Suns

The Suns signed Sonny Weems to a two-year deal worth $5.8 million

He was in Russia last year and wanted to get back into the NBA. Weems is 27 years old and hasn't been in the league since 2010-11, averaging just 9.2 points and 2.6 boards in 23.9 minutes per game during that season. He'll need to play very well to get in the rotation.

Sonny Weems - G/F - Suns

Unrestricted free agent Sonny Weems has yet to receive an offer from an NBA team, and FC Barcelona is making a strong push to sign him.

Weems will be an afterthought during free agency, so it's not surprising that he has yet to receive any deals with a number of big name free agents still on the board. If he does end up coming stateside, Weems is still unlikely to be a regular rotation player, and he won't be worth drafting in most leagues.

Sonny Weems - G/F - Suns

Sonny Weems has officially left CSKA Moscow, and he will weigh his NBA opportunities as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Weems has been out of the league since the 2010-11 season, and he owns career averages of 7.7 points and 2.5 rebounds. Perhaps he's able to sign on with an NBA team, but it's very unlikely he'll be a relevant name in standard fantasy leagues.

Sonny Weems - G/F - Suns

Former Raptors swingman Sonny Weems is reportedly leaving CSKA Moscow to pursue an NBA contract.

It's a bold move for the 27-year-old Weems, who is "leaving around $6 million on the table in Russia." Weems averaged 13.1 points in 26.9 minutes per game with CSKA last season, and seems to have improved his shooting range -- he made 37.1 percent of his 3-pointers last year after making only 24.1 percent in three NBA seasons from 2008-2011. He's not currently on the fantasy radar.

Sonny Weems - G/F - Suns

Sonny Weems signed a three-year contract with CSKA Moscow on Sunday.

Weems signed with a team in Lithuania last season, averaging 15.5 points in 30 minutes per game. The Raptors withdrew a $1.1 million qualifying offer for Weems this summer and he obviously had much greater appeal in the EuroLeague.

The Raptors have withdrawn their qualifying offer for Sonny Weems, making him an unrestricted free agent.

The QO was worth $1.1 million, but it seems the Raptors decided they wouldn't even want him on a one-year deal. A handful of teams have expressed interest in Weems, including the Cavaliers, Celtics, Clippers and Pistons.

Sonny Weems - G/F - Suns

The Raptors have extended a qualifying contract offer to G/F Sonny Weems, making him a restricted free agent.

By extending the qualifying offer to Weems, the Raptors will now be able to match any offer on him. Even though Weems played last season in Lithuania, the Celtics, Cavs, Pistons and Clippers all reportedly expressed interest in signing him before the draft, but it remains to be seen which teams are still interested. Weems is still only 25 years old and could provide swing man help to several NBA teams.

Sonny Weems - G/F - Suns

Restricted free agent Sonny Weems, who played this season in Lithuania this year, is set to return to the NBA next season.

The Celtics, Cavs, Pistons and Clippers have all reportedly expressed interest in Weems, but it's still incredibly early in the process. He shouldn't have trouble finding a new home in free agency, and it will be interesting to see what type of offer he receives. He'll still be just 26 years old when next season begins.

Sonny Weems - G/F - Suns

Sonny Weems, who will play in Lithuania without an 'out clause' this season, said he hopes to return to the NBA next year.

"I will be going back to the NBA unless I get an offer in Europe that I can't refuse," said Weems. He hopes that his experience as a go-to player in Lithuania will help improve his game at the NBA level, where in three years he averaged 7.7 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists.

Sonny Weems - G/F - Suns

Former Raptors swingman Sonny Weems has signed with the Lithuanian team Zalgiris Kaunas, and his contract does not include an opt-out clause.

Weems averaged a career-high 9.2 points per game last season, with 2.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists. As those numbers make obvious, he won't be missed in fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous item, Sonny Weems is on the verge of finalizing his one-year deal with Zalgiris in Lithuania.

Weems will not have an opt-out clause in his contract and will likely test the NBA once again when the lockout ends and his deal in Lithuania is up.
