PHOENIX (AP) -The Phoenix Suns signed first-round draft pick Alando Tucker to a two-year contract Saturday.
Terms were not disclosed by the team, but the NBA rookie scale guarantees Tucker will make $776,000 in his rookie season and $834,900 in his second year. The contract also has a team option for a third year.

Also on the Suns' summer roster is second-round draft pick D.J Strawberry - a guard out of Maryland - but he has not signed a contract yet.
