Phoenix Suns

  1. You jonesing for real basketball? A fix courtesy Suns highlights

    Jul 28, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    We all miss some real basketball. And few things are more entertaining than watching Steve Nash dish, Amare Stoudemire dunk and the Suns run. So here are their top 10 plays from last year. Enjoy.

  2. Dell Demps is a wanted man in Phoenix, New Orleans. But in a good way.

    Jul 20, 2010, 3:17 PM EDT

    Dell Demps has emerged as the hottest general manager candidate out there right now. A lot of you just muttered out loud, “who?” Trust us, you want Demps on your team. He is the number two man in the San Antonio Spurs organization (and general manager of their D-League affiliate), a guy coming out of…

  3. Lon Babby goes from agent to Phoenix Suns president, and it feels awkward

    Jul 20, 2010, 8:41 AM EDT

    It’s a move that is a little Ari Gold and feels a little awkward. Powerful agent Lon Babby is making a change to the other side of the table and will be announced today as the new president of basketball operations for the Phoenix Suns, replacing Steve Kerr. Babby’s clients — including Tim Duncan, Ray…

  4. Amare Stoudemire would have stayed in Phoenix with a max deal

    Jul 17, 2010, 11:10 PM EDT

    Here’s the bottom line question: Do you think Amare Stoudemire is a max player? New York did — they knew they needed to pay to get someone to start rebuilding around, someone who they could market. Stoudemire was that guy (if not the first choice, or second, or…). Phoenix did not. But if they had…

  5. Bobcats out of big trade; Barbosa for Turkoglu still on

    Jul 13, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan may made a descent owner after all. He had second thoughts about shipping out two solid big men — Tyson Chandler and Boris Diaw — for one nice point guard — Jose Calderon. He was right. The Bobcats are now out of the reported big three-team deal, according to Ken Berger at CBSSports.…

  6. Report: Suns close to acquiring Turkoglu, Childress in trades

    Jul 11, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Well, this is certainly… something.  Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Phoenix Suns are close to two separate deals to acquire two small forwards at opposite ends of their careers, both with sizable contracts.  First up, hailing from Turkey and loving pizza, Hedo Turkoglu and your $43 million in remaining contract, head…

  7. Amar'e Stoudemire will only kind of leave the Suns empty-handed

    Jul 8, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    UPDATE 11:38 AM: Although the plan described below is currently in place, LeBron James could make things a bit more interesting if he were to sign with the Knicks. From Paul Coro: However, if LeBron James picks New York today, the Suns could still have a chance at Lee. The Suns would have to do…

  8. Suns trying to get David Lee in sign-and-trade for Stoudemire

    Jul 6, 2010, 4:14 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire is not a New York Knick. Yet. Nobody can sign the paperwork until Thursday. That give the Suns to get a little value back for the man they almost traded at the deadline the last two years. Value back like David Lee, which is one scenario the Suns are working according to the…

  9. Free agent bargain bin: Louis Amundson

    Jul 4, 2010, 12:17 PM EDT

    Goran Dragic became a YouTube sensation, Leandro Barbosa has an established rep as a super-sub, Channing Frye reinvented himself, and Jared Dudley won over the world with his never-ceasing hustle and natural charisma. Yet behind them all is forgotten member of the Phoenix Suns’ immensely successful bench lineup: Louis Amundson. It’s strange: although Lou is…

  10. Goodbye Amar'e – Suns agree to terms with Hakim Warrick

    Jul 2, 2010, 11:54 AM EDT

    After a final offer to Amar’e Stoudemire was rejected — the two sides could not agree on guaranteed years — the Suns turned their affection to Hakim Warrick. And it was a quick romance, the two sides have agreed to a four-year, $18 million deal, according to Marc Spears at Yahoo. Warrick is a nice…

  11. Suns agree to give Channing Frye five years, $30 million to keep raining threes

    Jul 1, 2010, 11:02 PM EDT

    UPDATE 11:02 pm: Channing Frye and the Suns kept talking, and the two sides reached a deal this evening — five years, $30 million. That’s a good deal for him that extends into the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. After the crazy contracts of the day, one might have thought Frye would see if he could…

  12. Stoudemire holding out for five-year deal, talking to Miami and New York

    Jul 1, 2010, 12:32 PM EDT

    After a “first date” meeting with Miami Heat president Pat Riley — no word on if he got to second base — Amare Stoudemire’s agent made one thing very clear. “We’re not doing anything that’s not five years,” Walters said. That is from Paul Coro at the Arizona Republic (who rocks that beat hard, by…

  13. Amare Stoudemire opts out of deal, but he and Suns still talking

    Jun 30, 2010, 2:38 PM EDT

    Come midnight — or 9 p.m. out in Los Angeles where he is stationed — Amare Stoudemire will become a free agent. He will sit while gentlemen callers to come knocking on his door to court him. But there is a chance he stays in Phoenix. Slim but it exists. After three hours of meetings…

  14. If it's not too much trouble, Channing Frye would like a new contract, a photo-op, and one oversized check with his name on it

    Jun 30, 2010, 12:04 PM EDT

    The Channing Frye of old was given a $2.2 million player option for 2010-2011, but the flashy new Channing Frye (complete with three-point shooting action!) values himself at a bit more. Frye will decline his option to become an unrestricted free agent with the rest of the bunch. This doesn’t necessarily mean Channing is done…

  15. Maybe Amare Stoudemire will not be a free agent, to meet with Suns again

    Jun 30, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    That whole plan to pair Amare Stoudemire with Dwyane Wade in Miami (which is the plan if the big plan in Miami falls through) may have to be put on hold. Amare Stoudemire may not be a free agent after all. Maybe. Even if the smart money is still on him testing the market. Stoudemire…

  16. It's official, Steve Kerr is back in the broadcast booth

    Jun 29, 2010, 11:40 AM EDT

    This was going to happen as sure as BP is going to try to buy its way out of paying its full share of damages by making large campaign contributions. Steve Kerr is back with TNT. He will be in the booth next year, taking the place of Doug Collins, who has gone to Philadelphia…

  17. Suns to plead with Stoudemire one last time not to leave

    Jun 28, 2010, 3:14 PM EDT

    Tuesday afternoon, the Phoenix Suns will sit down one last time with Amare Stoudemire and try to convince him to stay. To stay with a team that made it to the Western Conference finals. A team with Steve Nash. A team where the style of basketball is fun. Stoudemire’s agent told FanHouse that Stoudemire will…

  18. Is Shaq a possible replacement for Sheed?

    Jun 27, 2010, 8:42 AM EDT

    The Celtics are about to enter a very uncomfortable time in the life of a franchise. Their best produced roster, with four Hall of Famers (at least), a stunning young point guard, and a range of versatile bigs failed to win a championship. Ray Allen is a free agent. Paul Pierce will opt out. And…

  19. Suns pick up option on Alvin Gentry, but still playing it tight for the future

    Jun 20, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Alvin Gentry took the Phoenix Suns to the Western Conference Finals, Game 6 after beating the San Antonio Spurs, who had plagued the franchise for close to a decade. He did so with Jared Dudley and Lou Amundson as his primary bench components. Lou Amundson! As a reward of faith for that work, Suns managing…

  20. Stoudemire done in Phoenix, if you believe one source. Or logic.

    Jun 17, 2010, 9:52 AM EDT

    We were all thinking it. But nobody was saying it. Admit it, even those of you in Phoenix were thinking it, even if you couldn’t admit it to yourself. Amare Stoudemire is done in Phoenix. That’s what a source told JA Adande of ESPN. “Amare’s done,” according to the source. “He’s gone.” Stoudemire has made…

  21. Steve Kerr claims that money wasn't the motivating factor in his departure

    Jun 16, 2010, 1:03 PM EDT

    Steve Kerr’s departure from the Suns was a bit curious…until Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski chimed in with the punchline: Robert Sarver asked Kerr to take a 10% paycut. Typical Sarver, typical Suns. There’s just one catch: publicly, both Saver and Kerr deny that the money played a significant part in Kerr and the Suns’ divorce. From…

  22. Who is lining up to be the Suns next GM?

    Jun 16, 2010, 12:22 PM EDT

    Who is going to be the man, the general manager trying to find the other key piece for a team with Steve Nash, an aging Grant Hill and a nice bench? (Yes, we left Amare Stoudemire’s name out intentionally. We see the writing on the wall.) A couple names have surfaced as possible replacements for…

  23. Kerr goes, does that mean Amare Stoudemire is next?

    Jun 16, 2010, 9:01 AM EDT

    Steve Kerr’s job number one this summer is to re-sign Amare Stoudemire. Make that was job number one. His new job number one is to work out that contract with TNT. Job number two is to stay out of his wife and kids way — they have a routine set. So what happens to the…

  24. Steve Kerr quits as general manager of Phoenix Suns

    Jun 15, 2010, 4:07 PM EDT

    UPDATE, 5:51 PM: According to Adrian Wojnarowski and Johnny Ludden of Yahoo! Sports, the impetus behind Kerr’s departure was that Suns owner Robert Sarver asked Kerr to take a 10 percent pay cut.  ORIGINAL POST, 4:07 PM:  In a surprise move, Steve Kerr is stepping down as president and general manager of the Phoenix Suns at…

  25. Phoenix is Amar'e Stoudemire's "Plan A." As long as they pay him.

    Jun 11, 2010, 12:08 PM EDT

    It’s all about the money. Amar’e Stoudemire threw a verbal bouquet to Phoenix on the last day of his youth basketball camp. But it came with the caveat — he wants to be paid. The Arizona Republic has the quote. Stoudemire called signing a contract extension with the Suns this month “Plan A.” “Camp colors…
