PHOENIX As first reported last week, free-agent guard Shannon Brown is returning for a second season with the Suns.
The team announced Brown's signing on Wednesday. He will compete with Jared Dudley and Wesley Johnson for time at the shooting guard position.
Shannon was a valuable member of our team last season, especially during the second half of the season when we were at our best, said Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby. We look for his improved play to continue.
Brown, a 6-foot-4 guard, is a six-year NBA veteran who had his best statistical season as a pro with Phoenix in 2011-12. He averaged a career-best 11.0 points per game while averaging 23.7 minutes. He averaged 15.6 points a game when inserted into the starting lineup in place of an injured Grant Hill for the season's final 17 games.
Brown has a career scoring average of 7.7 points in 315 games with Cleveland, Chicago, Charlotte, Los Angeles Lakers and Phoenix.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Phoenix Suns have re-signed guard Shannon Brown.
The contract is for two years with the second year partially guaranteed.
Brown averaged 11 points and 2.7 rebounds in a career-high 23.7 minutes per game last season. He appeared in 59 games, 19 as a starter.
He came to the Suns as a free agent in 2011, signing a one-year deal.
Shooting guard is a position of need for the Suns...
Names like Goran Dragic, Michael Beasley and Wesley Johnson weren’t going to grab the majority of the headlines. Not with “Steve Nash is a Laker” demanding all the attention.
Take a closer look from the Suns’ point of view, however, and you’ll find something nearly as shocking as L.A.’s new No. 10.
Phoenix’s management is playing it smart in the offseason.
Gone is the...
The fourth game for the Suns, and third for the former North Carolina Basketball player Kendall Marshall, was once again not the best performance for the team, but even if the stats definitely do not reflect it the rookie floor general seems to be improving each game. In a match up where the Phoenix Suns (1-3) lost to the NBA D-League Select (2-2) by fourteen points, with the final...

The really hardcore NBA fans have flipped ahead in their hoop calendars and circled Dec. 29, 2012, as appointment viewing.
Well, assuming doomsday -- as interpreted through study of the Mayan calendar -- doesn't co-opt the season (and the entire planet) 17 days earlier, the Suns will be in Minneapolis to take on Derrick Williams, Alexy Shved and the Timberwolves. It will be...
The Suns will sign P.J. Tucker to a two-year contract with partial guarantees on the first year.
The Hornets are attempting to execute a sign-and-trade with the Suns for Robin Lopez.
Long before the d-bags in Miami were rocking black uniforms and acting like jerks, Charles Barkley and the Phoenix Suns rocked the cleanest black jerseys in pro sports. (Shut up Raiders fans… you know I don’t speak hoodrat) Uni-watch.com broke the news that the Suns are bringing back the classic 90′s black uniforms that Barkley,
