Suns sign Michael Redd
Redd, 32, is an 11-year NBA veteran who has spent his entire career with the Milwaukee Bucks. Redd's career scoring average is 20.0, and averaged a career-high 26.7 points per game in 2006-07.
"Michael Redd has a proven pedigree as a first-rate NBA scorer," said Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby. "He will work with our renowned training staff to get into basketball shape. When he is ready to play, Michael will be a welcome addition to our team."
The Ohio State product has also had a long history with knee injuries. In fact, he's torn both the ACL and MCL in his left knee twice.
He's played in just 61 games in the last three seasons while dealing with his knee injuries.
In 2008, Redd represented the United States at the Summer Olympics in Beijing, averaging 3.0 per game off the bench for the gold medal-winning squad.
The Suns are hoping that Redd, a feared outside shooter, can help a struggling offense that has averaged just 84 points per game in their first two games of the season.
