The Phoenix Suns add much-needed size to its training camp roster by bringing in bigs Henry Sims and Cory Jefferson to compete for the final two roster spots.

The Suns will have two more bodies when training camp starts, and to the relief of many Suns fans, they aren't guards.

According to Paul Coro of azcentral.com, Phoenix has added center Henry Sims and power forward Cory Jefferson to the training camp roster in an effort to bolster their thin front line.

Sims, who is 6-10, last played for Philadelphia, where he started 32 of his 73 games last season, posting averages of 8 points and 4.9 rebounds in just 19.2 minutes per game. He has played three seasons in the NBA after going undrafted out of Georgetown in 2012, but his most productive seasons have come in Philadelphia, where he's averaged 9 points and 5.5 rebounds in 1 ½ seasons.

Jefferson was the last pick of the 2014 NBA Draft and spent last season with the Brooklyn Nets. He appeared in 50 games, averaging 3.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in 10.6 minutes.

He might be best known for this horrendous shot, however.

The Suns already have 13 guaranteed contracts but can carry up to 15 on their opening-night roster if either earns a roster spot. Phoenix already added Terrico White and Kyle Casey as training camp invites.
