PHOENIX (AP) -- The Phoenix Suns announced Monday the club has acquired rookie guard Sean Singletary from the Houston Rockets in exchange for guard D.J. Strawberry.

In Singletary, the Suns acquire a 6-foot,185-point rookie guard, who was the 42nd overall selection (second round) of the Sacramento Kings in the 2008 NBA Draft.

Singletary was then traded to the Rockets in the deal that sent Ron Artest to Houston August 14th.

Singletary was a member of the Kings' 2008 Las Vegas Summer League squad, averaging 5.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 32.2 minutes with appearances in each of the club's five games.

Strawberry was selected by the Suns with the 59th overall pick (second round) of the 2007 NBA Draft.
