Veteran guard Jamal Crawford has signed a one-year deal with the Phoenix Suns per The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Crawford spent the 2017-18 season with the Minnesota Timberwolves, averaging 10.3 points per game over 80 games off the bench. The three-time Sixth Man of the Year adds much-needed depth at the guard position for the Suns.

Phoenix fired its General Manager, Ryan McDonough, on October 8th. The Crawford signing was one of the first moves by interim GMs James Jones and Trevor Bukstein.

It seemed imperative that the Suns signed a guard prior to the start of the season and Jones and Bukstein found their guy. Crawford only has two days to get accustomed in Phoenix before the Suns host the Dallas Mavericks on opening night Wednesday.

Crawford has averaged 15.0 points per game throughout his 18-year NBA career. He is fifth all-time in made three-pointers and top-10 in scoring among active NBA players.
