The Phoenix Suns added some point guard depth Saturday, signing Phil Pressey to a 10-day contract.

The 25-year-old undrafted point guard out of Missouri has spent three seasons in the NBA. In his first two seasons with the Boston Celtics, Pressey started in 11 games. He averaged 3.5 points and 2.3 assists per game in his second and final season with the Celtics in the 2014-15 season.

After spending time with the Portland Trail Blazers and Utah Jazz before the start of the 2015-16 season, Pressey played in 14 games for the Philadelphia 76ers before being waived on Dec. 4.

Since being waived, Pressey has been playing for the Idaho Stampede in the NBA D-League.

Orlando Johnson went back to the D-League after his 10-day contract with the Suns and Jordan McRae’s second 10-day contract expired after Friday’s loss to the Houston Rockets.

Ronnie Price returned in that loss and Brandon Knight has not played since Jan. 19.
