FRIDAY, 1:22pm: The deal is official, the team announced. The Suns refer to it a contract for the remainder of the season rather than a multiyear arrangement.
THURSDAY, 7:39pm: The Suns intend to sign Earl Barron to a contract for the remainder of the season, Shams Charania of RealGM reports (Twitter link). It’s unclear if the deal stretches into next season and if so, if any guaranteed money is involved. Barron’s second 10-day pact expires today.
This move will give Phoenix 14 players on its roster with fully guaranteed deals for this season. The team also has Seth Curry, whom they recently signed to a 10-day pact. Phoenix will still be able to offer Curry another 10-day deal before having to decide to sign him for the remainder of the season.
The 33-year-old out of Memphis has appeared in eight contest for Phoenix, including one start. Barron is averaging 1.1 points and 0.8 rebounds in 5.6 minutes per night. His career numbers are 4.7 PPG and 3.6 RPG, with a slash line of .374/.071/.717.
