The Phoenix Suns announed Friday that the team has signed 2014 first-round draft picks Tyler Ennis and T.J. Warren.

A 6-foot-3, 19-year-old from Brampton, Ontario, Ennis played one season at Syracuse, earning All-ACC Second Team honors after averaging 12.9 points and 5.5 assists in 2013-14. Ennis has also played in international competition, leading Canada with a tournament-high 20.8 points per game at the 2013 FIBA U19 World Championship.

Warren, a 6-foot-8 forward from Durham, N.C., earned Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Player of the Year honors this past season to complete a two-year career at North Carolina State. In his sophomore season, Warren ranked third in the nation with 24.9 points per game while also averaging 7.1 rebounds and shooting an ACC-best 52.5 percent from the field. Named a Second Team AP All-American, Warren also played on the defensive end, leading the ACC in steals in conference games.

Both players made their Suns' debuts as members of Phoenix's entry at NBA Summer League 2014 in Las Vegas. Ennis posted team-highs of 3.2 assists and 1.6 steals in addition to 4.2 points and 4.0 rebounds, while Warren was named to the All-NBA Summer League Second Team after averaging a team-high 17.8 points on 54.4 percent shooting.
