Suns trade DJ Strawberry to Rockets for Sean Singletary

by August 25, 2008 @ 12:00 am

The Phoenix Suns announced today that the club has acquired rookie guard Sean Singletary from the Houston Rockets in exchange for guard D.J. Strawberry.
?Sean gives us depth at the point guard spot,? said Suns President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Steve Kerr.  ?We like his instincts and his ability to run a team.  He also puts a lot of pressure on the ball defensively. We thank D.J. for his contributions and wish him well.?
In Singletary, the Suns acquire a dynamic 6-0, 185-point rookie guard, who was the 42nd overall selection (second round) of the Sacramento Kings in the 2008 NBA Draft.  Singletary was then traded to the Rockets along with Patrick Ewing, Jr. in the deal that sent Ron Artest to Houston in exchange for Donte Green, Bobby Jackson and a future first-round pick on August 14, 2008.  Singletary was a member of the Kings’ 2008 Las Vegas Summer League squad, averaging 5.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 32.2 minutes with appearances in each of the club’s five games.
A four-year standout at Virginia, Singletary was a three-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference First Team selection.  During his senior season of 2007-08, the soon-to-be 23-year-old led his team in scoring for the second-straight season (19.8 points) and was the lone Division I player to rank in the top 40 in both scoring and assists.  That production earned Singletary an Honorable Mention All-America Selection from the Associated Press and made him a finalist for the Bob Cousy Award, given annually to the nation’s top collegiate point guard.
A three-time co-captain for the Cavaliers, Singletary finished his career as the only player in ACC history with 2,000 career points, 500 assists, 400 rebounds and 200 steals.  Singletary’s jersey was retired by Virginia before his final home game.
Strawberry was selected by the Suns with the 59th overall pick (second round) of the 2007 NBA Draft.  In his rookie campaign with Phoenix in 2007-08, the 6-5, 201-pound guard averaged 2.2 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 8.1 minutes, appearing in 33 games.
