LAS VEGAS – Amid a strong finish over the final week of NBA summer league, Dionte Christmas has received interest from teams, including from the organization he played for, the Phoenix Suns. “I’m getting positive feedback from a lot of teams,” Christmas told RealGM. “Perhaps I get a call saying they want to see me in training camp or hopefully sign me for the season.” Christmas averaged 10.1 points and 2.7 rebounds in seven games, helping lead the Suns to the summer league championship game. In his mind, the Suns are one of the organizations he hopes to land on. “Yeah, it would be a dream come true,” Christmas said. “If they sign me for the year, that’s what I’m here for and that’s my goal. “There were a lot of games through the course of three, four weeks in Orlando and Vegas, but I held my own and hopefully I get a call from one of these teams in the next week or so.” After finishing a four-year career at Temple, Christmas reached deals at different points with the Philadelphia 76ers, Houston Rockets and Boston Celtics, but he ultimately never played a game with either team. Christmas, 26, spent last season overseas.
