Phoenix Suns sign Earl Barron, Joe Jackson, Casey Prather and Jamil Wilson

The Phoenix Suns added four players to their training camp roster on Friday.

Veteran center Earl Barron along with rookies Joe Jackson (guard), Casey Prather (guard/forward) and Jamil Wilson (forward) are the newest Suns, as the team brings its roster up to 18 players.

Barron is a seven-year NBA veteran who played for the Suns during the 2010-11 season. The 7-foot, 250-pound center last played for the New York Knicks in the 2012-13 season.

The 33-year-old has averaged 4.9 points and 3.7 rebounds per game in 124 career games. Barron played 12 games in Phoenix, averaging 3.0 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.

Jackson had a four-year career at the University of Memphis, averaging 12.1 points, 4.1 assists and 2.8 rebounds per game. The undrafted point guard is one of only two players in Memphis history to accumulate more than 1,500 points, 500 assists and 175 steals (former Sun Elliot Perry being the other).

Prather spent four years at the University of Florida and led the team with a scoring average of 12.8 points last season.

Wilson played three years as Marquette, averaging career highs in points (11.7) and rebounds (5.9) last season as a senior.
