According to multiple reports, the three-time Sixth Man of the Year has reached an agreement on a one-year deal with the Phoenix Suns for the veteran's minimum.

The deal will pay the 38-year-old Crawford $2.4 million, a source told The Undefeated's Marc Spears.

The Suns have been looking for a long-term option at point guard since trading Goran Dragic in 2015. "He's a great player, he's a great guy", Jamal Jones said on 98.7 FM Arizona's Sports Station. "Those are the types of players that we will look towards as we go through the season". I'm focused on who's here and we know who those guys are. "He's someone that we've expressed interest in, one of many names".

There's an argument there's too many tournaments, and it's a shame that these ones with history and ones that get support [are allowed to disappear].

Crawford played last season for the Minnesota Timberwolves and averaged 10.3 points - his lowest PPG since the 2001-02 season, in which he played just 23 games.

A three-time Sixth Man of the Year award victor, Crawford is a proven scorer who has averaged 15.0 points 3.4 assists and 1.7 3-pointers made per game during his career. In the playoffs, Rozier was even better, showing exceptional ball-control and playmaking ability as he averaged 16.5 points, 5.3 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 1.3 steals per game in place of an injured Kyrie Irving.
