The Phoenix Suns will add free agent Josh Okogie on a one-year contract, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The 23-year-old shooting guard became unrestricted this week when the Minnesota Timberwolves declined to give him a qualifying offer. He spent his first four NBA seasons in Minnesota after being selected with the 20th pick in the 2018 draft.

Okogie has seen his playing time reduced over the past two seasons and averaged just 10.5 minutes in 49 games this year. A fresh start in Phoenix may help revitalize his career.

The Suns also added former Golden State Warriors shooting guard Damion Lee in free agency. They lost Aaron Holiday to the Atlanta Hawks, while Elfrid Payton remains unsigned.
