Suns re-sign guard Shannon BrownPosted by Inside Hoops
The Phoenix Suns’ search for a shooting guard has apparently come to an end, as they’ve reached contract terms with free agent Shannon Brown, who spent the 2011-12 season with the team.
According to Arizona Sports 620’s own John Gambadoro, the contract is for two years.
Brown, 26, played in 59 of 66 games for the Suns last season, averaging a career-high 11.0 points while grabbing 2.7 rebounds. In 19 games as a starter, Brown averaged 15.8 points and 3.7 rebounds per contest, while shooting .406 from three-point range.
The Suns were active in their flirtation with free agent shooting guards before re-signing Brown. On July 3, Phoenix inked restricted free agent Eric Gordon to a four- year, $58 million offer sheet that was ultimately matched by the New Orleans Hornets.
