PHOENIX (AP) — The Phoenix Suns traded guard D.J. Strawberry to the Houston Rockets on Monday for rookie guard Sean Singletary.

"Sean gives us depth at the point guard spot," Suns general manager Steve Kerr said. "We like his instincts and his ability to run a team. He also puts a lot of pressure on the ball."

Singletary was the 42nd overall pick in the 2008 draft by the Sacramento Kings, who quickly sent him along with Patrick Ewing Jr. and Ron Artest to Houston in exchange for Bobby Jackson, Donte Greene and a 2009 first-round draft pick.
