Suns agree to contract with Sebastian Telfair
Arizona Sports 620's John Gambadoro reports the Suns have agreed to a one-year contract worth between $1.5 and $2 million with the 26-year-old former lottery pick.
Telfair was originally drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers with the 13th pick in the 2004 NBA Draft, and has also played for the Celtics, Timber Wolves, Clippers and Cavaliers in his seven NBA seasons.
With career averages of 7.8 points and 3.8 assists per game, Telfair will be asked to lead the Suns' second unit when starter Steve Nash gets a rest.
According to Gambadoro, the Suns like Telfair's on the ball defense and ability to push the ball.
And, in a completely unrelated note, Telfair is a cousin of former Sun Stephon Marbury.
