The Phoenix Suns appear to be in a holding pattern for Kevin Durant, but after that initial flurry of reports stemming from his July 1 trade request, it’s grown fairly quiet. While other suitors have risen and fallen, the Suns will remain smack-dab in the middle of these long-winding sweepstakes as long as KD wants to play in Phoenix. There…...

Here's what comes next for the Phoenix Suns after matching a four-year max offer sheet for Deandre Ayton.

It was looking dicey for a minute there — okay, apparently it was three minutes — but Deandre Ayton will remain with the Phoenix Suns for at least the next six months. On Thursday, it was reported that Ayton had agreed to a four-year, $133 million max offer sheet with the Indiana Pacers. After he officially signed it, the Suns...

Here's what Phoenix Suns fans need to know about Deandre Ayton's max offer sheet from the Indiana Pacers.

The Phoenix Suns have been focused on working out a Kevin Durant trade, but now a Deandre Ayton complication could force their hand to shift gears. As first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Thursday, Ayton has agreed to a four-year, $133 million max offer sheet with the Indiana Pacers. This certainly throws a wrench into Phoenix’s lofty offseason plans, but now that we’re here, it’s time to go over what this means, what the Suns’ options are and how we proceed from here. 1. Pacers haven’t signed Deandre Ayton to his offer sheet yet, but can now Wojnarowski reported on the ESPN broadcast that Ayton had not officially signed the offer sheet yet, which is key for Phoenix. Once…

What can the Phoenix Suns expect from Josh Okogie?

The Phoenix Suns still have to figure out the Deandre Ayton situation and navigate blockbuster trade scenarios for Kevin Durant, but over the last few days of free agency, they’ve still been able to set their sights on rounding out the bench with cost-effective additions. Aside from bringing back Bismack Biyombo, the Suns also landed an off-ball shooter in Damion...

Here's a look at what Jock Landale can provide for the Phoenix Suns.

The Phoenix Suns are facing a lot of uncertainty at the center position. Deandre Ayton’s future in Phoenix is unclear amidst all the Kevin Durant trade rumors, and his backup, JaVale McGee, got a three-year, $20.1 million bag from the Dallas Mavericks. Bringing back Bismack Biyombo was a start to addressing the team’s depth at the 5-spot, and Jock Landale...

What can the Phoenix Suns expect from new arrival Damion Lee?

After days of frantic speculation about a blockbuster addition, the Phoenix Suns added a certain wing with championship experience from his time on the Golden State Warriors. That’s right folks, Damion Lee is heading to the Valley. Who did you think we were talking about? According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the 29-year-old Lee will be joining the Suns on a one-year deal. Because the signing is already official on the NBA’s transactions page, and because deals worth the veteran minimum can be signed before the moratorium period ends, it’s safe to assume he’ll be playing on the vet minimum ($2.1 million, in this case). https://twitter.com/wojespn/status/1543073019093983232?s=20&t=aAgnh6RdA310_pX6dhUFxQ Granted, those clinging to their phones waiting for news of a Kevin Durant trade to…

If the Phoenix Suns need to replace Deandre Ayton in free agency, their pickings will be slim with the mid-level exception.

The madness of 2022 NBA free agency is already upon us, and the Phoenix Suns have big decisions to make. At the forefront of their busy offseason is figuring out what to do with their former No. 1 overall pick, Deandre Ayton. As a restricted free agent, Ayton faces a tougher market than expected. The pool of teams projected to...

If the Phoenix Suns target wing depth in free agency, here are a few good MLE candidates.

The Phoenix Suns have a busy offseason ahead after a quiet NBA Draft night. With free agency officially kicking off Thursday at 6 p.m. ET (and unofficially underway already, tampering rules be damned), the Suns have a number of housekeeping items to take care of and an even larger number of possible avenues to consider. The top priority is figuring...

The Phoenix Suns may not get Kevin Durant, but Dejounte Murray and Malcolm Brogdon are among the other potential trade targets in 2022.

The dream isn’t technically dead, but at this point, it feels highly unlikely the stars will align for that blockbuster Kevin Durant trade to the Phoenix Suns. After weeks of reports that the Brooklyn Nets were not interested in a long-term Kyrie Irving extension, it felt certain the seven-time All-Star would entertain his options elsewhere. Instead, Monday’s news cycle presented...

Which of the Phoenix Suns' own 2022 free agents should they keep for next year?

While it’s only natural to look outward for external upgrades after such a traumatic playoff collapse, the Phoenix Suns will also spend a good deal of their offseason looking inward…and not just the players and coaches staring at a mirror wondering what went wrong. From a pure team-building perspective, the Suns will have to reconcile the franchise-record, 64-win season that...
