Suns Sign Free Agent Guard

The Phoenix Suns have added some depth to the backcourt, signing free agent guard Frank Jackson to a training camp contract. 

It's a non-guaranteed deal for the 6'3" point guard, who'll be going into his 5th season in the NBA. 

Jackson, in his second season with the Detroit Pistons last year, averaged a career-best 10.6 points. He shot 53% from two-point range, though struggled from beyond the arc, hitting on just 30.8% of his threes. The Pistons declined their $3.15M option on Jackson, making him a free agent.

He'll now try to make the Suns' roster, and provide some backcourt depth behind Chris Paul, Devin Booker, Cam Payne and Landry Shamet.

Jackson was the No. 31 pick overall in the 2017 NBA Draft, but sat out his first year with a foot injury. He played for the New Orleans Pelicans for two seasons after that.

In his four seasons, he's played in 213 NBA games, averaging 8.5 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.0 assist, while shooting 33.3% from 3-point range.
