PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns have waived backup point guard Zabian Dowdell, signed guard Ronnie Price and added forward Marcus Landry to the roster.

Dowdell gave the Suns quality minutes as Steve Nash's backup last season, but he has been bothered by a sore right knee in training camp. Phoenix also signed point guard Sebastian Telfair just before the start of camp, helping lead to Dowdell's release on Tuesday.

Price has averaged 3.6 points over six NBA seasons with Sacramento and Utah.

Landry has spent most of his professional career in the NBADL since leaving Wisconsin in 2009, his lone NBA experience a 17-game stretch with the Knicks in 2009-10 before being traded to Boston.
