Tariq Owens went undrafted after exploding onto the scene at Texas Tech in his final year of college basketball helping the team get to the team to the National Title game. After going undrafted it was reported that Owens received an opportunity to play with the Suns in the Summer League.

After getting with the team he didn't play in the Summer games but he stayed with the Suns and has now signed a one-year contract with the team.

The deal is a minimum deal and can be converted into a two-way contract later on.
