PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. – The Northern Arizona Suns have added two former players, the team announced Friday.

The NAZ Suns have acquired Zach Andrews and Steven Green from the Available Player Pool, following the call-up of starting point guard Josh Gray to the Phoenix Suns.

Northern Arizona’s roster now consists of 12 players.

Andrews (6-9, 230) played two games with the NAZ Suns earlier this season, tallying two points and five rebounds in 17 combined minutes. The 32-year-old will continue his fifth season in the NBA G League. He and Green will be available when the Suns host the Maine Red Claws at the Prescott Valley Event Center at 7 p.m.

In Andrews’ NBA G League career, he has averaged 7.5 points and 6.1 rebounds in 110 games (59 starts). After trying out for the Los Angeles D-Fenders in 2011, he earned a spot on the All-Star team and was named an All-NBA G League Honorable Mention in 2012. That season, he signed with the Los Angeles Lakers for a short period.

Green could make his NBA G League debut tonight. The 6-foot 5-inch, 195-pound guard tried out for the Northern Arizona Suns this past offseason. He was one of three players to earn a training camp invite.

In the Suns’ preseason game at South Bay on Oct. 29, he was one of four to score in double figures for NAZ, recording 10 points, six rebounds, two assists and a steal.

The 24-year-old played two years at Oklahoma Baptist University from 2014-16 after a two-year run at Phoenix College. Green went to Alhambra High School in Phoenix.

Andrews was waived on Nov. 12 when Northern Arizona acquired Malik Dime. Green was waived when the Suns announced their opening night roster on Nov. 2.
