According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, forward 'Chase Budinger plans to sign with the Phoenix Suns once he clears waivers'.

Budinger was only released by the Indiana Pacers on Saturday due to the fact the side needed to create a roster spot for free-agent guard Ty Lawson. Another team in the league already has their eye on acquiring the 27-year-old.

He is expected to clear waivers Monday to which then the Suns will make their approach for the forward.

Across his seven seasons in the NBA with the with the Houston Rockets, Minnesota Timberwolves and Pacers, Budinger has averaged 8.1 points and 3.1 rebounds.

He only started two games for the Indiana-based franchise during this season but did appear in 49 games. He averaged 4.4 points, 2.5 rebounds, and one assist during his time with the team this year.

The Suns have already created a roster spot for Budinger, by waiving guard Sonny Weems on Saturday. Weems had only signed a two-year contract in the past summer and averaged 2.5 points in 36 games this season for the Phoenix-based franchise.

The team will be hoping they are able to sign the 27-year-old - who studied in Arizona - before they play against the New York Knicks on Wednesday night later this week. He is a solid bench player so long as he performs, and if he does, he could earn himself another contract with the Suns this summer.
