The Phoenix Suns were awarded the rights to Luis Scola on Sunday by submitting the highest bid for the free agent forward, according to multiple reports.
Scola was waived by the Rockets on Friday via the amnesty provision, and several teams, including Dallas and Cleveland, submitted bids for Scola, according to NBA.com.
The Suns had to submit a bid of at least $3.3 million per year for Scola, and commit $10 million over three years.
Scola, 32, averaged 15.5 points and 6.5 rebounds with Houston last season.
To make room, the Suns waived Josh Childress using the amnesty provision, the Arizona Republic reported.
