Phoenix Suns Win Waiver Auction On Luis Scola, Amnesty Josh Childress

Luis Scola, who was released by the Houston Rockets via the new amnesty clause earlier this week, has been awarded to the Phoenix Suns, according to a report. The Suns already have a pretty full roster as far as forwards and post players go, but there is no denying that Scola is a very talented player who can be a big contributor on the offensive end.

Here is the latest from Marc Stein of ESPN.

Scola, 32, has really emerged into a fine player the last few seasons in Houston. He averaged 15.5 points and 6.4 rebounds in 2011-12, which are right on par with his career averages. He's a physical player who knows how to use his body, although his defense is not great.

SB Nation Arizona's Seth Pollack is fine with the move to acquire Scola, although he's a bit unsure of how everything will come together with Channing Frye, Robin Lopez, Marcin Gortat and Hakim Warrick all projected to be on the team next season. Everything should work itself out in the end.

To make room for Scola, Phoenix has reportedly amnestied Josh Childress.
