2011 NBA Free Agents: Suns Reportedly Sign Michael Redd

After working him out on Tuesday and doing their due diligence on his troublesome knee, the Phoenix Suns have signed veteran SG Michael Redd, according to Arizona Sports.

Redd, 32, comes to a Phoenix squad in serious need of some extra bench scoring, bringing his 11 year’s of experience and 20 point carrer scoring average along with him.

"Michael Redd has a proven pedigree as a first-rate NBA scorer," said Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby. "He will work with our renowned training staff to get into basketball shape. When he is ready to play, Michael will be a welcome addition to our team."

Redd has had some major knee issues in the past, tearing his ACL and MCL in his left knee at the same twice in consecutive seasons, limiting his play to only 61 games over the past three seasons. Hopefully those injuries don’t become an issue is Phoenix.

An All-Star in 2004, Redd has finished in the top-11 in NBA scoring five separate seasons (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008), as well as averaging 20 or more points in six-straight seasons (2003-09). He spent his previous 11 years with the Milwaukee Bucks.
