Former Suns guard Zabian Dowdell has signed with the Turkish team Anadolu Efes Istanbul.

Dowdell played 24 games with Phoenix last year, averaging 5.0 points and 2.1 assists, but the arrival of Ronnie Price and Sebastian Telfair made him expendable.

The Suns have waived Zabian Dowdell.

The chose to sign Ronnie Price makes a lot more sense with this news. Dowdell had been having issues with his knee and his return was not imminent, so the team chose to move on. He'll look to latch on elsewhere when he's healthy.

Backup PG Zabian Dowdell missed Saturday's workouts due to pain under his right kneecap.

This is bad timing with newly acquired PG Sebastian Telfair coming on board to compete for the No. 2 job behind an aging Steve Nash. The winner of this battle will have significant upside if they can create separation from the other, but only in very deep leagues in which relatively low-value players can be stashed.

Zabian Dowdell and referee Ken Mauer were fined undisclosed amounts by the NBA for an exchange they had in a game on March 30.

Dowdell has alleged that Mauer used a derogatory name toward him. The NBA says it does not believe that to be the case, but still deemed Mauer's actions to be "inappropriate." Dowdell averaged 5.0 points in 24 games for the Suns this season.

Zabian Dowdell (flu) returned to action on Friday, playing 18 minutes on his way to eight points on 3-of-3 shooting with two rebounds, five assists, and one steal.

He will have no fantasy value with Aaron Brooks now in town, but has performed beyond the modest expectations folks had when he was called up for his first 10-day contract.

Zabian Dowdell (flu) may not be available for Wednesday's game.

Dowdell is the third-string PG behind Steve Nash and Goran Dragic, so there's no measurable impact here.

The Suns signed Zabian Dowdell to a second 10-day contract on Thursday.

The 26-year-old has appeared in two games for the Suns this season, averaging 2.0 points per game.

The Suns will sign guard Zabian Dowdell to a 10-day contract from the D-League on Saturday.

Obviously, he has no fantasy value, but he is the first D-Leaguer to be called up on a 10-day contract this season.
