The Phoenix Suns have will sign veteran guard/forward Trevor Ariza to a one-year, $15 million deal, Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania reported Saturday.

Ariza is a 14-year NBA veteran who spent his last four seasons with the Houston Rockets. He averaged 11.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game and shot 36.8 percent from 3-point range last season. Alongside 2017-18 NBA MVP and ASU alum James Harden, Ariza helped guide the Rockets to a 65-win regular season and a postseason run that finished one win shy of the NBA Finals.

The 33-year-old Ariza has played for six NBA teams during his pro career and won an NBA championship in 2009 as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. He played collegiately at UCLA and was the 43rd overall pick by the New York Knicks in the 2004 NBA Draft.

Earlier on Saturday, the Suns waived point guard Tyler Ulis. The Suns will reportedly not re-sign point guard Elfrid Payton and center Alex Len.
