PHOENIX -- Two people with knowledge of the situation say free agent Anthony Tolliver has agreed to a two-year, $6 million contract with the Phoenix Suns.

Both spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced.

Only $400,000 of the second year of the contract is guaranteed.

The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 6.1 points and 2.6 rebounds in 64 games last season with Charlotte, his sixth team in six NBA seasons. Tolliver shot 42 per cent from 3-point range, and the Suns see him as a "stretch forward" to help fill the void created by the departure of Channing Frye, who opted out of the final year of his contract and signed with Orlando.

Tolliver has a career average of 6.1 points.
