  1. Cedric Ceballos buys piece of ABA team in Phoenix

    Jul 29, 2011, 2:18 PM EST

    Ball Up Celebrity Streetball Game

    Cedric Ceballos is still in Arizona. No Lakers fans, not jet skiing on Lake Havasu, he lives there now. He’s the in-game MC for the Phoenix Suns. So, like the rest of us, he hopes to get back to his new job sooner rather than later. But he’s picked up a side gig — he…

  2. Nash not going overseas, wants to stay in Phoenix

    Jul 28, 2011, 9:47 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    Steve Nash is a homebody. While other players are signing or flirting with teams overseas, Nash said he’s not going. The All-Star point guard is on a promotional tour in China and while Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul said they would consider playing a season in China if the lockout drags on, Nash said no…

  3. Marcin Gortat and Robin Lopez are not best friends

    Jul 27, 2011, 7:15 PM EST

    Baron Davis, Marcin Gortat

    After former Magic center and Dwight Howard backup Marcin Gortat was traded to the Phoenix Suns last season, he ended up taking the starting center job from the incumbent Robin Lopez. It didn’t take long at all. In a recent Q+A at a kids’ basketball camp (hat tip to SB Nation’s Seth Pollack), Gortat talked…

  4. Aaron Brooks is happy being Steve Nash’s backup for now

    Jul 27, 2011, 8:41 AM EST

    aaron-brooks-suns-qo

    Being the backup point guard in Phoenix can seem a no-win job. No matter what you do, you are not Steve Nash. This is Nash’s team. This is Nash’s city (which is why they are not likely to trade him). You are the guy that takes the floor while Nash lies down by the bench…

  5. Vince Carter wants to play a couple more years in NBA

    Jul 21, 2011, 2:29 PM EST

    vince-carter-suns

    Vince Carter says isn’t done. That doesn’t mean he has any idea where he is going to land, but he says he has more NBA level basketball in him. Maybe, but you can be sure he’s going to get paid a lot less to do it. The Suns (who traded for him mid-season) are expected…

  6. Today’s NBA or Europe roundup — Jimmer’s staying

    Jul 15, 2011, 2:23 PM EST

    Seems like every day one or more NBA players say they are open to the idea of playing overseas during the NBA lockout. While we have our doubts about how many will actually go (even if the lockout drags into the season), here’s a roundup of who is saying and doing what in the last…

  7. Report: Pietrus to have knee surgery, will miss Eurobasket

    Jul 14, 2011, 3:49 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Mickael Pietrus, the Phoenix Suns swingman, will not be playing for the French national team this summer as they try to qualify for the London 2012 Olympics. Instead, he’s going to have surgery. First the French national team announced that Pietrus essentially did not pass his physical with the team. Then his agent contacts BasketUSA,…

  8. Suns’ Childress doesn’t get NBA players talking Europe

    Jul 13, 2011, 12:17 PM EST

    Olympiacos' Josh Childress (C) shots bet

    Josh Childress has been there — when the Atlanta Hawks tried to lowball him, he took a three-year deal to go play for Olympiacos in Greece. Childress has played at Europe in his prime. He has done what everyone is talking about. He sees a lot of guys — Ty Lawson is the latest, joining…

  9. Free agent Aaron Brooks expects to return to Phoenix

    Jul 13, 2011, 10:27 AM EST

    aaron-brooks-suns-qo

    Damn lockout. Right now we should be up to our necks in free agent signings, rumors of signings and the fun that can be player movement in the off-season. Instead we’re talking if Nate Robinson can play NFL cornerback. Which is about as likely as the Celtics landing Dwight Howard. Point guard Aaron Brooks would…

  10. Mickael Pietrus says Kobe wants him on Lakers

    Jul 7, 2011, 2:00 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Mickael Pietrus did not like how he was used by the Phoenix Suns after being traded to them from Orlando last season. Now he wants to change his focus and play a role on a team that can win a title, he told the French publication L’Equipe (via Hoopshype, who did the translation). And he…

  11. Armen Gilliam, 13-year NBA veteran, UNLV star, dies

    Jul 6, 2011, 12:51 PM EST

    armen gilliam

    Armen Gilliam, one of the best players ever to come out of UNLV who went on to spend 13 years as an underappreciated player in the NBA, has passed away at the age of 47. “The Hammer” (as he was nicknamed) died from a heart attack suffered while playing pickup basketball not far from his…

  12. Report sees fans in San Antonio, Boston quick to return after lockout

    Jul 4, 2011, 2:00 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs NBA Championship Parade

    Let’s say the lockout does end up costing part of a season, we have already talked about how a league that has picked up so much momentum with casual fans will be kicking that to the curb and have a lot of rebuilding to do with fan bases. But which teams will bounce back quickest.…

  13. Dwight Howard pokes fun at former teammate Carter

    Jun 29, 2011, 6:19 PM EST

    Vince Carter Planking

    If you’re not familiar with “planking,” it refers to lying face-down on something and having somebody take a picture of you while doing it. It has become a popular meme lately, even among NBA players such as Gilbert Arenas and Dwight Howard. Today, Howard used the “planking” meme to take a jab at former teammate…

  14. Lockout veteran Grant Hill learned lessons from last one

    Jun 28, 2011, 3:55 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    There are a handful of guys still around the NBA from the last time the league locked out, the 1998-99 season, which cost the league 32 games. Grant Hill of the Suns is one of those guys and told Marc Spears of Yahoo there are lessons to be learned. “You want to stay in shape.…

  15. Steve Nash will definitely stay in Phoenix, unless he doesn’t

    Jun 22, 2011, 5:41 PM EST

    Channing Frye Steve Nash

    Here’s the full report, from The Arizona Republic’s Paul Coro: It was appropriate that Steve Nash had to reiterate his stance on his Suns commitment on the same day his team president, Lon Babby, needed to reiterate the franchise’s commitment to him. Babby again stated that the Suns will not be trading Nash, nor have they initiated talks…

  16. Despite rumors everywhere, Suns say Nash not being traded

    Jun 22, 2011, 10:21 AM EST

    Steve Nash

    It was maybe the craziest rumor of this draft… which is saying something. Steve Nash to the Minnesota Timberwolves for the No. 2 pick was discussed, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. He went on to say in the article it was unlikely because Nash wants to go to a contender, not a 17-win team.…

  17. Stunning news: Knicks would still like to get Steve Nash

    From the NBC Sports Department of the Obvious, we bring you this news: The New York Knicks still have interest in getting Steve Nash. The New York Post has the shocking details.

  18. Report: Warriors in talks to land Robin Lopez from Suns

    Jun 21, 2011, 12:53 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns, Game 4

    The emergence of Marcin Gortat as a quality center in the Suns up-tempo offense has left them with a problem a lot of teams would like to have — two quality centers, when you remember they have Robin Lopez as well. The Golden State Warriors would like to help them out with that by offering…

  19. The Circle of Stupidity is complete: Suns expected to buy out Vince Carter

    Jun 19, 2011, 3:00 PM EST

    Vince Carter,

    This is like some crazy train of poor decision making and it just jumps from car to car to car. Let me try and trace this back for you. Hedo Turkoglu looks awesome in the 2009 NBA playoffs, helping the Orlando Magic make it all the way to the NBA Finals. He rebounds, runs point…

  20. Pietrus to stay with the Suns

    Jun 13, 2011, 7:00 PM EST

    PIETRUS_MICKAEL

    Via Jorge Sierra of HoopsHype: Suns swingman Mickael Pietrus has elected to opt in for the fourth year of his contract, agent Bill McCandless told HoopsHype. “It wasn’t an easy decision, but given the expiration of the CBA we decided that the decision made the most sense,” McCandless said. Pietrus, who finished his eighth season in the NBA last…

  21. Vince Carter wants to play two more years. Yes, in the NBA.

    May 24, 2011, 4:48 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    Vince Carter will be a free agent this summer. Well, unless you think the Suns want to pay $18.3 million a year next year for a 35-year-old who gave them 13.5 points per game on 42.2 percent shooting. But Carter isn’t done. Or doesn’t want to be. He tells the Orlando Sentinel he wants to…

  22. NBA executive announces he’s gay, hopefully league yawns

    May 16, 2011, 8:10 AM EST

    Rick Welts

    In an ideal world, the NBA (and basketball) is a meritocracy — how well you do as a player or coach or executive is based solely on how well you do your job. Skin color, religion, who you choose to sleep with, none of that should matter. But we know better — organized professional sports…

  23. Trailer for new Steve Nash documentary

    May 12, 2011, 8:45 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Steve Nash knows a little something about documentaries. He directed the fantastic “Into the Wind” about Terry Fox for ESPN’s 30 for 30 series. He has his own production company. But he is on the other end of the lens in a new documentary called “Nash.” Which we know nothing about. The shots in the…

  24. Turkoglu’s disaster of a playoffs traced back to Phoenix

    Apr 28, 2011, 1:41 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Back in 2009, Hedo Turkoglu was in his element, aggressively running the pick-and-roll. Dwight Howard was still the center of the Magic’s offensive solar system, Turkoglu was setting the table and knocking down threes. He pushed the Magic to the finals. This season, he is pushing them out in the first round. Orlando has to…

  25. Grant Hill lays career-crushing ankle problems on Pistons medical staff

    Apr 28, 2011, 1:11 PM EST

    Grant Hill #33

    Some people just have forgotten or do not realize how good Grant Hill was. How explosive, how devastating on the crossover and attacking the rim. Follow this link to some video highlights. Then ankle injuries robbed him of that explosiveness. He’s come back and become a solid player with some old-man game knowledge, but he…
