Metu will be reportedly making $2.53 million in his one-year deal, according to Spotrac.

The 26-year-old Metu was a key part to the Sacramento bench last season, helping turn them around and become the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference.

In 66 games last season, he averaged 10.4 minutes, 4.9 points and three rebounds on  59/24/74 splits. Metu, listed at 6-foot-9, 225 pounds, has played five years in the league, his first two with the Spurs and last three with the Kings. He was drafted 49th overall by San Antonio in 2019.

He will likely be the Suns’ third-string center behind Deandre Ayton and Drew Eubanks, but could also play the four in some lineups.
