Luis Scola will sign with the Phoenix Suns after the team won an amnesty auction on Sunday evening for the former Houston Rockets forward, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com:

The NBA's 30 teams were notified shortly after 5 p.m. ET on Sunday that the Suns won the blind bidding for Scola, which requires interested teams under the salary cap to bid no less than $3 million for this season and $10-plus million for the next three seasons.

Stein said it's not immedately known how many teams bid for Scola, beyond the Suns and Dallas Mavericks.

Scola will join a revamped Suns team that saw the departure of two-time MVP Steve Nash this offseason but also the acquisition of Scola's former teammate in Houston, Goran Dragic, and Minnesota Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley.

The Rockets used the team amnesty clause on Scola during the off-season to free up $21 million off their cap that's owed to him over the next three years. He averaged 15.5 points and 6.5 rebounds in 31 minutes last season for the Rockets.
