De'Anthony Melton returns to the Phoenix Suns following a brief stay with the Suns G League affiliate, the Northern Arizona Suns.

Melton played in four games with the NAZ Suns with an average of 18.0 points, 7.3 rebounds and 6.0 assists.

He was the second NAZ Suns player to ever score a triple-double. He scored 19 points with 13 assists and 10 rebounds against Iowa on Tuesday.

He was the first player in a team to have posted a triple-double in one of his first games in the G-League since Jae Crowder in 2014.

With Phoenix, Melton has appeared in two games for a total of 23 minutes.

He was the 46th overall winner in this year's Houston Rockets draft and part of a trade that sent Marquese Chriss and Brandon Knight to Houston.

This was Melton's second stint in the G League this season.
