 PHOENIX (AP) -The Phoenix Suns and D.J. Strawberry, their second-round draft pick, have agreed to a two-year contract that guarantees him a roster spot this season.
Strawberry, the 59th overall selection in the June draft, will receive the rookie minimum salary of $427,163 for the 2007-08 season. The second year of the contract is a team option.
The 6-foot-5 Strawberry, a former University of Maryland star and son of former baseball star Darryl Strawberry, played point guard in the NBA Summer League and could provide depth at that position for the Suns.
``D.J. brings toughness, defense and athleticism to our team and we're excited that he's a part of our organization,'' Suns general manager Steve Kerr said. ``The fact that he spent four years in college as part of a very strong program with a winning tradition is important.''
In another move, the Suns promoted Vinny Del Negro to assistant general manager. Del Negro, who joined the club's front office in 2003, served as director of player personnel last season.
Before that, he spent three seasons as a color analyst on Suns broadcasts and worked as a scout.
