PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns announced Friday that the club has acquired forward Hakim Warrick in a sign-and-trade deal with the Chicago Bulls.

The Bulls receive the Suns' second-round pick in 2011 for the Pennsylvania native, who signed a four-year contract.

"Hakim is a player we have watched perform well against us for years," said Suns head coach Alvin Gentry. "He is a long, athletic player who runs the floor and finishes well. We feel, given the opportunity, and playing alongside veterans like Steve Nash and Grant Hill, he can be a productive member of our rotation."

Warrick, who turned 28 on Thursday, split time in Milwaukee and Chicago last season after a four-year stint in Memphis.

The 6-foot-9, 219-pounder has averaged 10.1 points and 4.3 rebounds over 383 career games.
