    Feb 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    Josh Smith

    A good chunk of trades went down before the trade deadline, but it’s the deals that didn’t get made that loom large. Josh Smith is still an Atlanta Hawk, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still Boston Celtics, Dwight Howard is still a Laker, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are still on the Jazz…you get…

    Marcus Morris, after being traded to the Suns on Wednesday, caught up with CSNHouston and said he “shed a tear or two” when he first got news he was headed out of town. It wasn’t so much the fact that Morris, in the middle of his second season with the Rockets, was all that attached…

    If it appears two things are certain following the trade deadline now — Lakers fans will complain (because they always do) and Josh Smith will be in another uniform. The question now seems to be “where will Josh Smith play the rest of this season?” Followed by, “what about next season?” Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo…

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Clippers

    PHOENIX — The Suns are a team in complete disarray at this point in the season, and while the Thunder are clearly one of the league’s best, the disparity was magnified after the teams met for the second time in three days on Sunday. While game two was a lower scoring affair than the first…

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    The Suns are currently riding a five-game losing steak, after coming close but ultimately falling short in a 97-94 loss to the Mavericks on Thursday.

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    The fact that the Suns lost to the Miami Heat on Saturday, even with Dwyane Wade out due to injury and LeBron James playing through illness, wasn’t by itself cause for concern. But the way the team started, flat once again and failing to score in the game’s first 4:14 on the way to a…

    Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving reacts after a turnover during the second quarter of the Cavaliers NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Cleveland

    The NBA is evolving into more of a point-guard league — if you can’t touch a quick ball handler on the perimeter they are going to carve up any defense. With the rules enforced as they are, Tony Parker can’t guard Tony Parker. So no shock that the two guys on top of the NBA…
