The Phoenix Suns have brought back swingman P.J. Tucker on a three-year deal worth $16.5 million, reports Yahoo Sports' Marc Spears. 

Tucker averaged 9.4 points and 6.5 rebounds for the Suns last season. It was his second year with Phoenix after a five-year hiatus from the NBA during which he played abroad in leagues in Israel, Ukraine, Greece, Italy and Germany. Tucker hit threes at a 38.7 percent rate and was one of the Suns' best perimeter defenders last season.

Phoenix, initially expected to tank last year, shocked the NBA by contending for a playoff spot in the West. The Suns finished with a 48-34 record.

​Grade: C+. Tucker is a good fit in Phoenix, but likely wouldn't have received this type of generous deal from anyone else. To Tucker's credit, a physical defender who can knock down three-pointers is a player any team could use. But at 29, Tucker is unlikely to improve much from what we've already seen.
