According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Phoenix Suns have agreed to a one-year contract with free-agent wing Damion Lee.
The deal would be the first reached by the Suns in free agency, which opened on Thursday at 3 p.m. local time in Arizona. Aaron Holiday, the former Suns backup guard, is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks, and Lee appears to be in line to take his place.
In addition to being able to play both guard and wing, Lee’s athleticism also allows him to contribute as a capable shooter. His first Larry O’Brien Trophy was won by the Golden State Warriors over the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals in June, and Lee, who will be 30 this October, was a supporting player during that season.
A 6-foot-5, 210-pound guard, he played 19.9 minutes per game last year, averaging 7.4 points, 3.0 boards, 1.0 assists, and 0.6 steals. Lee also shot 44.1 percent from the field, 33.7 percent from three-point range, and 88 percent from the free-throw line in 63 games (five starts).
Before joining the Hawks in 2018, the five-year professional had a career average of 8.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 0.07 steals in 21.0 minutes per game after being undrafted from Louisville.

Lee has a career field goal percentage of 43.4%, a three-point percentage of 35.7%, and a free throw percentage of 86.8% in 216 regular-season games (53 starts).
After playing with the Warriors from 2018-22, Lee only saw action in the playoffs last season, averaging 7.8 minutes per game and dishing out two assists while pulling down one rebound.
Curry-younger Lee’s brother Stephen and his brother-in-law Seth are both married to Lee’s wife, Sydel Curry-Lee, a former NBA player’s daughter. Phoenix Suns guard Damion Lee and the team have agreed to a one-year deal, ESPN reported on Friday.
In 63 regular-season games (five starts) with the Golden State Warriors last year, Lee had averages of 7.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, and one assist. After 16 games in the playoffs, he played 7.8 minutes per game, averaging two points and 1.6 rebounds. His most productive season so far was the 2019-20 campaign, when he averaged 12.7 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per contest.
