Phoenix Suns agree to terms with center Jermaine O’Neal
The Phoenix Suns have agreed to terms with veteran center Jermaine O’Neal on a one-year contract worth $1.35 million, according to a report by the Arizona Republic.

A six-time All-Star, O’Neal spent the last two seasons with the Boston Celtics, where he was limited to 49 games because of knee and wrist injuries. He averaged 5.0 points and 5.4 rebounds this past season.

In an attempt to revive his career, O’Neal went to Germany this summer to receive the Orthokine treatment on both of his knees. Kobe Bryant, Alex Rodriguez and Grant Hill also have had that procedure performed in the past.

The 6-foot-11 O’Neal, who will turn 34 years old in October, has career averages of 13.7 points and 7.4 rebounds in 911 games. With the Suns, O’Neal will provide depth in the frontcourt for a team that traded center Robin Lopez this offseason.

The Phoenix Suns have signed forward P.J. Tucker to a two-year contract.
The Suns say the team’s front office and coaching staff were impressed with Tucker’s performance in the Las Vegas Summer League, leading to the signing.
The 6-foot-6, 244-pound forward played the last five seasons internationally, with stops in Puerto Rico, Greece, Israel and Germany. Tucker was a second-round draft pick of the Toronto Raptors out of Texas in 2004, the 35th selection overall.

Phoenix Suns re-sign Shannon Brown to two-year deal
The Phoenix Suns have re-signed guard Shannon Brown.
The contract is for two years with the second year partially guaranteed.
Brown averaged 11 points and 2.7 rebounds in a career-high 23.7 minutes per game last season. He appeared in 59 games, 19 as a starter.
He came to the Suns as a free agent in 2011, signing a one-year deal.
Shooting guard is a position of need for the Suns, who had signed restricted free agent Eric Gordon to a contract but it was matched by New Orleans.
The team has worked out a three-team trade that would send Minnesota guard Wesley Johnson and a first-round draft pick to the Suns.

Robin Lopez joins New Orleans Hornets in 3-team trade
The Hornets, Suns and Timberwolves have agreed to a multiplayer trade sending 7-foot center Robin Lopez and forward Hakim Warrick from Phoenix to New Orleans, while moving forward Wesley Johnson and a first-round draft pick from Minnesota to Phoenix, a person familiar with the deal said.
The person told The Associated Press about the trade on condition of anonymity Wednesday because it has not been announced pending the completion of some routine logistical matters.
The deal also sends guard Jerome Dyson and retiring center Brad Miller's $5.1 million contract from New Orleans to Minnesota, allowing the Timberwolves to clear space under the NBA's salary cap as they pursue free agents. Minnesota also will receive two second-round draft picks from New Orleans, while the Hornets will receive cash.
The Timberwolves were also finalizing a two-year, $20 million deal with former Utah Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko, according to a Yahoo! Sports report.
Minnesota general manager David Kahn declined to confirm the multiteam deal when asked about it on a conference call Wednesday, saying only that he is “not allowed to comment on anything that hasn’t been consummated.”
The acquisition of Lopez fills a need at center for the Hornets, who traded away Emeka Okafor and let Chris Kaman go in free agency.
While the Hornets were able to draft 6-foot-11 Kentucky star Anthony Davis first overall in last month’s draft, Davis is expected to play often at power forward because his slender build could leave him at a defensive disadvantage in one-on-one matchups against some of the league’s more powerful centers such as Dwight Howard or Andrew Bynum.
The Hornets also have 7-footer Jason Smith on the roster, and while he has filled in at center well when called upon, he has been primarily a reserve power forward during his career.
New Orleans now has made two trades to acquire new front-court players, having also dealt forward Gustavo Ayon to Orlando for 6-foot-10 sharpshooter Ryan Anderson, a perimeter threat who can space out an opposing defense.
Lopez was drafted 15th overall by the Suns in 2008. Before that, he starred at Stanford with his twin brother, Brook, now a starter with Brooklyn Nets.
Robin Lopez has been an off-and-on starter in the NBA and was a reserve for all 64 games in which he appeared last season, averaging 5.4 points, 3.3 rebounds and 0.7 blocks in 14 minutes a game.
Warrick, a former Syracuse standout now entering his eighth season, started periodically in Memphis early in his career, but played a reserve role the past two seasons in Phoenix. For his career, he has averaged 9.5 points and 4.1 rebounds in 20.4 minutes.
The 6-foot-7 Johnson is entering his third season in the NBA out of Syracuse. He has averaged 7.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in 24.6 minutes in his young career.

Minnesota Timberwolves, Phoenix Suns, New Orleans Hornets discussing trade
A multi-team deal has emerged that could serve to clear cap space for Andrei Kirilenko to return to the NBA with the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to a league source.
The potential deal comes amid reports that the Timberwolves are interested in signing the 31-year-old Kirilenko.
In the deal, the Phoenix Suns would send Robin Lopez and Hakim Warrick to New Orleans, and the Suns would get Wesley Johnson and a future first-round pick from Minnesota. The source said New Orleans would trade Brad Miller to the Suns. It’s unclear what Minnesota would get from the deal.
New Orleans and Phoenix discussed a similar four-team trade last week, with Boston and Houston replacing Minnesota, but the Suns pulled out as the deal fell apart. That’s when the Timberwolves entered the picture.
Earlier Tuesday, ESPN’s Marc Stein reported the Brooklyn Nets were pushing hard to bring Kirilenko back to the NBA, despite their own limited salary-cap flexibility. Kirilenko, who spent last season with CSKA Moscow, wants to return to the NBA. Sources said that Team USA guard Deron Williams, Kirilenko’s former Utah Jazz teammate, was part of the effort to recruit Kirilenko.
Sport Express in Russia on Tuesday quoted Kirilenko saying: “I want to decide my new team before the Olympics. There are several options in the NBA, but the final choice has not been made yet.”
Kirilenko also told Ria Novosti, another media outlet: “Which club in particular, we’ll know in a day or two.”

Los Angeles Clippers agree to contract with Grant Hill, sources say
Grant Hill has committed to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers, two sources close to the process told ESPNLosAngeles.com
The team is finalizing the terms of the deal, the sources said. Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Hill will receive a two-year contract.
The Clippers could acquire Hill with their $1.9 million bi-annual exception or via a sign-and-trade with the Phoenix Suns, likely involving backup forward Ryan Gomes, who is due to make $4 million in the final year of his contract.
The Clippers have long been searching for perimeter players to complement their nucleus of Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. They have so far signed shooting guard Jamal Crawfordand re-signed guard Chauncey Billups this summer.
Hill would give the team depth at the small forward position, behind starter Caron Butler.
Hill would add a defensive presence and more overall play-making ability. Belinelli is considered one of the top shooters on the free-agent market.
Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro has had a previous relationship with Hill — Del Negro was a member of the Suns’ front office during Hill’s tenure with the team.

Phoenix Suns sign point guard Kendall Marshall to rookie deal
PHOENIX — The Phoenix Suns have signed first-round draft pick Kendall Marshall to a rookie contract.
Terms of the deal were not released.
The Suns used the 13th overall pick of the NBA draft to take Marshall, a 6-foot-4 point guard from North Carolina. He’s expected to be the Suns’ point guard of the future after they sent two-time league MVP Steve Nash to the Los Angeles Lakers in a sign-and-trade deal on July 4.
Marshall won the Bob Cousy Award as the nation’s best point guard last season after leading the nation with 351 assists, the fourth-highest total in NCAA history, and led the nation in assist-to-turnover ratio at 3.5.

The Clippers believe they have a strong chance at landing Hill because of coach Vinny Del Negro’s previous relationship with him — Del Negro was a member of the Phoenix Suns' front office during Hill's tenure with the team.
The Los Angeles Times first reported the team’s interest in Hill.

Phoenix Suns win amnesty auction for Luis Scola
The Phoenix Suns have won the amnesty auction for former Houston Rockets forward Luis Scola, according to sources with knowledge of the auction outcome.
The NBA’s 30 teams were notified shortly after 5 p.m. ET on Sunday that the Suns won the blind bidding for Scola, which requires interested teams under the salary cap to bid no less than $3 million for this season and $10-plus million for the next three seasons.
It was not immediately known how many teams placed bids on Scola beyond the Suns and the Dallas Mavericks.
The 6-foot-9, 245-pound Scola averaged 15.5 points and 6.4 rebounds last season for the Rockets, who used their amnesty provision to waive the remaining three years and $21 million on his contract.
Scola, 32, would be the latest acquisition in a busy offseason for the Suns, who have moved quickly to rebuild since trading two-time MVP Steve Nash to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Scola is set to join a frontcourt that features newly acquired forward Michael Beasley, who agreed to terms with Phoenix on an $18 million contract earlier this month, according to sources. The Suns also recently landed Goran Dragic to replace Nash, agreeing with the free agent point guard on a $34 million deal, according to sources.
