Suns Sign NBA Champion Guard

The Phoenix Suns have signed free agent guard Damion Lee to a one-year deal, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Lee won a championship this past season with the Golden State Warriors.

In 63 games, the 6-foot-5 guard averaged 7.4 points and 3.2 rebounds in nearly 20 minutes per game with the Warriors in 2021-22.

Lee has been with Golden State since the 2018-19 season. His best statistical season came in 2019-20, when most of the Warriors' stars were out due to injuries. In that season, he averaged 12.7 points and 4.9 rebounds in 29 minutes per contest. 

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr likes Lee for his ability to space the floor. He shot just 33.7 percent from three this past season, but he did make a career-best 39.7 percent from deep in 2020-21.

Lee should bring that reliable outside shot to the Suns next season.
