The Suns scooped up the 6-5 combo guard in the second round of the 2007 NBA Draft with the 59th overall selection. Hoping to add some defensive toughness and versatility to both positions in the backcourt, Strawberry already has made an imprint with his play in the Las Vegas Summer League.
The first-year guard ran the team at the point, averaged 15.6 points and led the entire summer league with 6.4 assists a game. [...]
On Tuesday, Strawberry inked a two-year contract that includes a guaranteed first season and a second-year team option, giving Phoenix 12 signed players for the coming season.
The Mohave Daily News reports that Strawberry will earn the NBA rookie minimum salary.
