It’s theoretically possible — the Phoenix Suns have some of the best flexibility in the NBA this offseason, and in Free Agency Lebron James is a prize they can land. Nothing to this point hints that James would be interested in the Suns — first he must decide to leave Miami of course — and the only […]

By nightfall, teams will be hunkered around their big boards, clearing up questions of rankings. Phoenix worked out more than 70 players to complete their scouting season, so now it’s on to draft-day strategy. Here’s what we know […]

Back in 2010, forward Amare Stoudemire had an easy decision to make. He could work out a max deal with the New York Knicks worth $100 million over five seasons. All of it would be guaranteed. Stoudemire’s other option was to return to Phoenix, where a five-year, $96.6 million deal sat on the table. It […]

Phoenix worked out four wings and two intriguing big men on Monday.
PHOENIX — Not only was the Suns’ workout on Monday the most talented group of players Phoenix has run through its up-tempo gamut. It was perhaps a six-pack of players the Suns could draft if they stand pat with the 14th and 18th overall picks in the 2014 NBA Draft. “We did a little extra scrimmaging, an […]
