Suns reach two-year deal to bring back Shannon Brown

UPDATE 6:03 pm: And it’s official. From the twitter of Marc Spears of Yahoo.

Suns guard Shannon Brown is re-signing, his agent Mark Bartelstien says.

This is a two-year, $7 million deal. Which sounds about right.

4:40 pm: The Suns have traded out Steve Nash for Goran Dargic at the point guard spot, but they have struck out bringing in a quality new two guard.

So, it looks like they may bring Shannon Brown back. So tweets John Gambadoro of KTAR in Phoenix.

Hearing the Suns are closing in on a deal with free agent Shannon Brown. With Gordon, Mayo and Lee all gone now it makes the most sense.

The Suns made a max offer to Eric Gordon but the Hornets matched it and get to keep the restricted free agent. O.J. Mayo chose to go to Dallas, while Courtney Lee is a fantastic fit in Boston.

Last season in Phoenix Brown played the most minutes per game, took the most shots and scored the most points (11 a contest) that he had in his career. He wasn’t particularly more efficient or better at it (PER of 13.6 the past two seasons), he just played a larger role in the offense. One that may continue into next season.

    It stinks for Suns fans that you’re bringing back Shannon Brown. Hopefully the team is still trying to work something else out.

    Shannon Brown is not a productive player. Ownership can bring him back but they need to begin plans for the future at two guard.

    On behalf of all the Suns fans:

    noooooooooooooooo :(

    He just endlessly jacks up his shot whether it’s falling or not. If he gets the ball, not only does he never pass, he doesn’t even pretend to. Runs down the floor holding up the 1 telling everybody he’s taking the shot. 42% from the field and 36% (which was a career high) behind the arc, both extraordinarily mediocre (and really, 42% from the field, when he’s, you know, a shooting guard, is bad). He’s not going to play well with B-easy at all, and he’ll be the 3rd or 4th option (which means he’s going to sulk).

    Despite how much Laker fans love the guy, theres a reason he’s played on 4 different teams in 6 seasons (and also why he is still a free agent).

    Wish he’d come back to LA!

    Gonna need a shooting guard in the future. Too bad they missed on Gordon and waited too long to woo Mayo.
    With Dragic-pg, Dudley/Beasley-sf, Scola-pf and Gortat-c, the hole is at shooting guard. The bench mob is Morris, Lopez, Marshall, Warrick and then what.
