The Phoenix Suns have signed former All-Star guard Michael Redd to a one-year contract.
Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby said Thursday that Redd is a proven scorer. He averaged 20 points in 11 seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks.
Redd was in the final season of a six-year, $91 million deal he signed with the Bucks in 2005. Two injuries to his left knee cost him large chunks of three straight seasons.
The 6-foot-6 guard was the 43rd overall pick of the 2000 NBA draft by the Bucks, his only pro team.
