I can understand the Phoenix Suns are using [being...

Phoenix Suns: What Should Be Their Starting 5?

Phoenix Suns: What Should Be Their Starting 5? By Troy Tauscher: Staff Writer At Hoopstuff… A season removed from a surprisingly successful season , the Phoenix Suns are looking to get into the playoffs with their recent roster additions.

Isaiah Thomas 'felt very disrespected' by Kings

Isaiah Thomas is extremely happy to be with an organization that appreciates him rather than looks for an excuse to replace him. Thomas was sent by the Sacramento Kings to the Phoenix Suns and signed a four-year, $27 million deal as part of a sign-and-trade this summer. Thomas said at his introductory press conference earlier […]

Phoenix Suns release Dionte Christmas

  The Phoenix Suns ended Christmas early this summer by waiving fan and locker room favorite Dionte Christmas. Christmas was on a non-guaranteed contract for the upcoming 2014-2015 season.

What Exactly Are the Phoenix Suns Doing?

Nobody seems to have a handle on what the Phoenix Suns are trying to do this offseason. Despite the lofty (and unrealistic) initial goal of signing both LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, Phoenix has been fairly quiet so far in the offseason. The Suns wisely spent $3 million per year on role player extraordinaire Anthony Tolliver, a cost-effective and reasonable replacement for Channing...

Phoenix Suns: Pay Bledsoe, But The Max?

Phoenix Suns: Pay Bledsoe, But The Max? By Troy Tauscher: Staff Writer/Hoopstuff… Since last July, the Suns have maintained a commitment to match any offer for restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe.

Warren makes stellar impression with Summer League Suns

PHOENIX -- In 2013, what happened for the Suns in Vegas didn't stay there. And that was a good thing. The rise of the Morris twins in the NBA Summer League continued in Phoenix, and P.J. Tucker went directly from The Strip to the Suns' starting lineup. Things were more forgettable this season, although it's unwise to go all-in on anything that happens while working against...

Phoenix Suns: Goran Dragic set to continue success?

In fantasy basketball, there are always a limited number of point guards that can score and give you great production in terms of points. Many superstars on teams are not point guards and you are usually stuck with a point guard who gives you decent production. Don't make that mistake this year and draft the one point guard who will have another great year. Goran Dragic. Dragic...

Warren shines again but Suns fall

T.J. Warren scored 26 points but it wasn't enough for the Suns in an 86-77 loss to Minnesota in the Las Vegas Summer League. Warren led all scorers and Elias Harris added 16 points while Miles Plumlee posted his second straight double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds (and three blocks).
