The Phoenix Suns today added guards Jeremy Hazell and Dwight Buycks to the team’s training camp roster, the club has announced.

The Suns’ 2011 training camp began Saturday, Dec. 10, at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix.

Hazell averaged 19.8 points as a senior in 2010-11, and became just the third player in school history to reach 2,000 career points. A Third Team All-Big East selection, Hazell played briefly this season with Lucentum Alicante in Spain.

Buycks is a 6-3, 190-pound rookie guard who played his final two collegiate seasons at Marquette University after a standout junior college career.
