Report: Phoenix Suns add veteran point guard Ronnie Price

Jul 8, 2015, 2:29 PM | Updated: 2:30 pm

Apparently the Price is right for the Phoenix Suns.

AZCentral Sports’ Paul Coro is reporting the team will sign veteran point guard Ronnie Price to a one-year, $1.5 million contract, giving them the backup they sought for the position.

The 32-year-old spent last season with the Los Angeles Lakers, where he averaged 5.1 points and 3.8 assists while appearing in 43 games.

This will be the 6-foot-2, 190-pound Price’s second stint with the Suns, as he was with them in 2011-12. He averaged 3.6 points and 1.9 assists for the team.
