Jermaine O'Neal Signs With Phoenix Suns, According To Report

Veteran free agent center Jermaine O'Neal has elected to sign with the Phoenix Suns, according to a report from Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. O'Neal, who has played two injury-prone seasons for the Boston Celtics recently, will look to revive a career that has fallen off since he was once one of the NBA's best players.

O'Neal will turn 34 in October and has been in the league since 1996, but has missed a lot of games recently. He played in just 25 contests for the Celtics this season after being surprisingly effective for Boston and the Miami Heat in the two prior years. However, the Suns have a history of taking injury-prone players and making them healthy, thanks to their pristine medical and training staffs. Injury-prone players such as Grant Hill and many more have rediscovered their health and their step while playing for the Suns.

O'Neal averaged just five points and 3.9 rebounds for the Celtics last season.
