Suns sign Toumani Camara to standard deal

Toumani Camara and the Phoenix Suns agreed to a standard contract, according to Spotrac's Keith Smith.

Camara was selected by the Suns with the No. 52 pick in the 2023 NBA Draft.

The 6-foot-8 forward is now the 16th player under contract. The Suns will have to cut one more player so they do not exceed the roster limit.

Camara, who is 23 years old, will become the fourth Belgian-born player to debut in an NBA game assuming he plays, joining a list that also includes Tony Parker, Xavier Henry and Frank Nitilikina. Camara is the only one of those players who was also raised in Belgium.

Toumani Camara is seen as a player who could fit within the Suns' identity under coach Frank Vogel. He has a 7-foot 1/2 wingspan and an 8-foot-11 standing reach, according to numbers posted before the draft.

He improved as a 3-point shooter in each of his four college seasons. He shot 36.3 percent from three last season at Dayton after he shot just 17.2 percent from that range as a freshman at Georgia.

Camara is bought in as a defensive player. He was named to the Atlantic 10's all-defensive team last season and was an all-conference first-team pick, averaging 13.9 points on 54.6 percent shooting overall and 8.6 rebounds per game.
