Phoenix Suns

  1. John Treloar jumps from the Erie BayHawks' bench to the Phoenix Suns' front office

    Sep 15, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

    This summer, much like the season before it, has been kind to the D-League. There have been call-ups from players to coaches to managers to referees, and some of the D’s best and brightest are now the NBA’s, well, something far less. It doesn’t matter. They’ve made it. Whether on guaranteed contracts or make-good deals,…

  2. Cavs hire former Suns executive David Griffin as head of the basketball side

    Sep 13, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    David Griffin has signed on for some rebuilding. Former Suns executive Griffin has been hired as the new Vice President of Basketball Operations for the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to ESPN. Griffin left Phoenix with Steve Kerr. He had been the frontrunner to take over as general manager in Denver, when talks reportedly hit a snag…

  3. Hip-Hop DJ, bobblehead paying Jared Dudley

    Sep 10, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Jared Dudley just rocks. Guy is smart (on and off the court), he cares, he’s funny, one of the best guys to talk to in the league. Oh, and he has some big plans for this season, as he told Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. Now that his jersey is for sale in the…

  4. Pro Basketball Crosstalk: Has the small-ball fad passed?

    Sep 9, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Sometimes, the NBA’s most important issues can only be fully understood when two college students talk at each other about them. It is in this spirit that we here at NBC bring you Pro Basketball Crosstalk, featuring Rob Mahoney and John Krolik. Resolved: Contrary to earlier reports, the crackdown on hand-check rules that took place…

  5. Chucky Atkins trying to resurrect career in Phoenix. Seems appropriate.

    Sep 8, 2010, 1:05 PM EDT

    Chucky Atkins has had 11 solid years in the NBA, played in some big games early in his career, drained 934 threes and pocketed a little over $34 million. A career most guys would envy. But Atkins doesn’t want it to end, so he is in the Valley of the Sun, according to Paul Coro…

  6. Stoudemire suggested the Suns get Steve Nash over Kobe Bryant

    Sep 2, 2010, 4:24 PM EDT

    Right now, everybody wants to play with Kobe Bryant. He’s winning; he’s assumed that “veteran who can lead” mantle (although he likes Derek Fisher around to play good cop to his bad cop). A few years back, say the summer of 2004, that was not the case. That was the summer that Kobe was a…

  7. Suns fans, watching Hedo Turkoglu play in Turkey will not make you smile

    Sep 1, 2010, 4:01 PM EDT

    No Amare Stoudemire but you’ve got Hedo Turkoglu and Josh Childress so everything will be just fine in Phoenix, right? Well, that assumes you get the 2009 playoff version of Turkoglu. You know, the one the Toronto Raptors paid for but called lemon law on. But now out of Toronto, fresh start in a great…

  8. Suns bring back Dwayne Jones after sending him to Toronto

    Aug 30, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Dwayne Jones was technically a part of the trade that sent Hedo Turkoglu to Phoenix and Leandro Barbosa to Toronto, though you probably wouldn’t know it. Jones’ career thus far has consisted of bench-riding and D-League excellence, and his inclusion in the Suns-Raps deal was merely a salary-matching formality. Toronto waived him soon after, and…

  9. Steve Nash, catch and shoot guy? Welcome to the new look Suns.

    Aug 30, 2010, 2:36 PM EDT

    The unorthodox Phoenix Suns are going to be even more unorthodox next season. It’s a matter of necessity after the roster shakeups this summer, with Amare Stoudemire out and Hedo Turkoglu and Josh Childress in. They will be smaller, faster, and have a new spot-up shooter in Steve Nash. Don’t take my word for it,…

  10. Steve Nash says all the right things about taking on a challenge

    Aug 27, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    Steve Nash knew when he signed an extension with the Phoenix Suns last summer — two years, $22 million, taking him up to the summer of 2012 — that it might not happen. He didn’t chase the ring, he didn’t go to New York, he took the money from a franchise he loves. So while…

  11. Goran Dragic denies interest in playing overseas, right now anyway

    Aug 23, 2010, 12:41 AM EDT

    UPDATE 9/23 12:41 am: Oh, it was all a simple misunderstanding blown out of proportion, like a Three’s Company episode (cue the laugh track). Seth Pollack from SBNation emailed Dragic, who sent back this response. This news is not correct, because I made a statement that I want to end my basketball carrer in Europe.…

  12. Who is setting the picks for Steve Nash next season?

    Aug 18, 2010, 4:53 PM EDT

    Nobody in the league is better coming off the high pick than Steve Nash. He’s quick, but it’s not about quick. He’s got crazy handles, but it’s not about that either. The pick-and-roll is all about decision making and there is nobody who makes the right read and quick pass better than Nash. But his…

  13. Lou Amundson is done in Phoenix, but the Hornets, Warriors, and Pacers are knocking on his door

    Aug 18, 2010, 12:36 PM EDT

    Louis Amundson was the most understated of Phoenix’s tremendously successful reserve unit last season. Leandro Barbosa was the established veteran scorer, and could catch lightning in a bottle. Goran Dragic was the young up-and-comer, officially hosting his coming out party on the Spurs’ home court during the first round of the playoffs. Channing Frye was…

  14. Want to play in the NBA? Just send a team a video.

    Aug 9, 2010, 10:24 AM EDT

    That whole playing a lot of basketball as a youth, getting good coaching in high school and from AAU mentors, going to a college and really maturing your game, then finally getting drafted into the NBA thing is hard. Really hard. You have to have athletic gifts then be willing to work your butt off…

  15. Suns pick Dwayne Collins signs in Italy

    Aug 8, 2010, 8:53 PM EDT

    Mr. Irrelevant is going to Italy. Dwyane Collins was the last player selected in the NBA draft. No. 60. The Mr. Irrelevant position, which is exactly what Collins had tattooed onto his hand as a reminder. He’ll be getting that reminder in Italy next year, as he has signed to play Cimberio Varese for next…

  16. Lance Blanks is the next general manager in Phoenix

    Aug 5, 2010, 8:23 PM EDT

    Lance Blanks is the latest loss for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Blanks, now the No. 2 man on the Cleveland basketball side, has decided to take over as general manager of the Phoenix Suns. Blanks had been rumored to be the frontrunner. In practice, Blanks may be the No. 2 guy in Phoenix, too. Lon Babby,…

  17. Matt Janning gets chance to be last Suns guard on the roster

    Aug 5, 2010, 9:35 AM EDT

    You didn’t see Matt Janning in college because he played for Northeastern and you probably can’t even tell me where that is located. This is why there is Summer League. Not to learn where Northeastern is but to showcase guys like Janning (who didn’t even get invited to the Portsmouth Invitational). He fit in well…

  18. Suns about sign Gani Lawal for three years

    Aug 2, 2010, 11:13 AM EDT

    UPDATE 11:08 AM: According to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic, it’s not a make-good deal after all. Despite earlier reports from the Republic pointing to a fully unguaranteed, make-good agreement, the Suns have signed Lawal to a three-year contract with the initial season fully guaranteed for $473,604. The second and third seasons will only…

  19. Hedo Turkoglu on Toronto: "Something is wrong with that organization"

    Aug 1, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Hedo Turkoglu got his wish — the Raptors traded him out of Toronto to the Phoenix Suns. But on his way out the door Turkoglu keeps taking shots at the Raptors. Classy. Sunday there was a needlessly vindictive series of comments with Turkoglu spoke with FoxSportsArizona.com. “People have to realize something is wrong with that…

  20. Suns going back to square one with GM search, but Lance Banks may be the frontrunner

    Jul 30, 2010, 1:20 PM EDT

    Here’s the conventional wisdom, the perception out there — new Phoenix president of basketball operations Lon Babby will be calling the player personnel shots for the Suns, the general manager will be the guy doing the leg work. It was reported by Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski that Cleveland’s front office man Lance Blanks is in line to…

  21. 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.

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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.…
