Phoenix will incur a $1.4M cap hit this season with the waiver of Davon Reed. Any team interested in claiming the former second round pick must have cap space or a trade exception. The contract for Reed in 2019-20 ($1.61M) and 2020-21 ($1.75M) is non-guaranteed with a July 10 trigger date for each season.

The Disabled Player Exception that Phoenix applied for with regards to Darrell Arthur is now voided with his waiver. The Suns will have a $7.4M cap hit on Arthur and $50K with Shaquille Harrison. Teams eligible to claim Harrison must have cap space or a trade exception to claim him based on the guard signed a three-year contract in March. The remaining $1.4M on the Harrison contract is non-guaranteed and he has a $1.6M team option in 2019-20. The Suns will need to waive or trade one player before Jamal Crawford is signed.
