The Phoenix Suns have officially signed second-round pick Toumani Camara to a standard contract, according to Spotrac’s Keith Smith.

The deal is for four years, $7.64 million and is fully guaranteed for the 2023-24 season per Spotrac and Hoops Hype’s Michael Scotto.

The Suns selected the 6-foot-8, 23-year-old Dayton product with the 52nd overall pick in this year’s draft.

In his four collegiate seasons, first at Georgia then at Dayton, Camara averaged 11 PPG, 6.9 RPG, 1.4 APG, 1.0 SPG, 0.8 BPG on 51/31/63 splits. He was named to the Atlantic 10 All-Conference first team his senior year, as well as to the Atlantic 10 All-Conference defensive team.

The Suns now have 16 standard contracts on their roster. While they are only allowed 15 in the regular season, they can carry more into camp and then make a decision from there. As of now, the big names to watch for that last spot would be Isaiah Todd (fully guaranteed contract), Camara, Ish Wainright (non-guaranteed until January) and Jordan Goodwin (partially guaranteed).

The team also currently has all three of its two-way spots left (Saben Lee is a restricted free agent right now). With that being said, it’s worth noting that a player on a standard contract can’t be converted to a two-way deal. They would have to be waived and then re-signed.

Camara was recently named to the Suns Summer League roster, as were Todd and Goodwin.
