BasketNews sources confirmed that both sides are finalizing the last details of the contract.

According to BasketNews sources, Lundberg's salary should be at least 1.5 million euros per year.

The Danish guard split time between CSKA Moscow and Phoenix Suns last season.

Lundberg averaged 9.9 points, 2.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.9 steals, and 8.0 PIR over 24 EuroLeague games.

He departed the team by mutual agreement after Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Lundberg reportedly paid his own contract buyout.

After exiting Moscow, the 27-year-old penned a two-way contract with the Suns.

Iffe Lundberg appeared in four NBA games and registered 3.3 points, 2.8 assists, and 1.8 rebounds in 11 minutes.

The 1.93-meter combo guard has also played for teams in Denmark, Spain, and Poland during his 8-year professional career.
