The Phoenix Suns have traded second-round pick Andrew Harrison to the Memphis Grizzlies for forward-center Jon Leuer.

For an instant, the Suns appeared to have added a fifth Kentucky guard to their roster on Thursday night. But it was just a quick stop before going on to the Grizzlies. The Suns announced the trade later Thursday.

Harrison played two seasons with the Wildcats, starting all but two games and averaging 10.9 points in 2013-14 and 9.3 points in 2014-15.

The 6-foot-10 Leuer has played four NBA seasons. He averaged 4.5 points in 63 games with the Grizzlies last season.
