PHOENIX, Ariz. – It’s official, former Utah Jazz point guard Ricky Rubio has signed with the Phoenix Suns.

Reports say the deal is a three-year contract worth $51 million.

Rubio posted pictures of him signing his contract and holding up his new jersey with Suns general manager James Jones.

It was clear that Utah wouldn’t be bringing back Rubio after they acquired Mike Conley from the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for Kyle Korver, Jae Crowder, Grayson Allen, the 23rd pick in last Thursday’s NBA Draft and a future first round pick.

The Jazz thanked Rubio on Twitter for the time he has spent with the Jazz.

Jazz executive vice president of basketball operations Dennis Lindsey thanked Rubio for what he did for the Jazz, the community and the state of Utah.

“It’s hard, his heart and care factor for the community, his teammates, he was amazing. He has a great deal in Phoenix and he will lead their group well,” Lindsey said at the press conference that introduced Mike Conley and Bojan Bogdanovic.

Joe Ingles tweeted his appreciation for Rubio and the veteran point guard responded.

When the reports surfaced when free agency began on June 30, Donovan Mitchell thanked Rubio.

During the off-season in 2017, Rubio was traded to the Jazz for a 2018 first round draft pick. He played 145 games in Utah and posted 12.9 points and 5.7 assists.
