Suns Sign Damian Jones

NOVEMBER 29: Jones’ signing is official, according to the RealGM Transactions Page.


NOVEMBER 22: The Suns have agreed to a two-year deal with free agent center Damian Jones, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (Twitter link). Jones will earn the veteran’s minimum, tweets John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7.

Jones, 25, spent last season with the Hawks and was acquired in July of 2018 from Golden State. He spent the first three seasons of his career with the Warriors, having been drafted by the team at No. 30 in 2016.

Jones played 55 games with Atlanta last season, averaging 5.6 points, 3.7 rebounds and 16.1 minutes per contest. He’s expected to provide depth behind starting center Deandre Ayton in the frontcourt, with Phoenix seeking their first playoff berth since the 2009-10 season.

Over the past week, the Suns also traded for Chris Paul (in a deal that sent out Kelly Oubre Jr. and Ricky Rubio), agreed to sign Jae Crowder, and reached a deal to bring back Jevon Carter.
