The Phoenix Suns today acquired center Jock Landale from the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for cash considerations. Landale (6-11, 255 pounds) played in 54 games in his rookie NBA season with San Antonio in 2021-22, averaging 4.9 points on 49.5% from the field and 82.9% from the free throw line plus 2.6 rebounds in 10.9 minutes. He had 10 games scoring in double figures including a career-high 26 points, making 12-of-15 field goals, on March 12 vs. Indiana.
