Here's what Cam Payne needs to do to bounce back with the Phoenix Suns in 2022-23.

For better or for worse, Cam Payne may be the barometer for how the Phoenix Suns’ bench unit fares in 2022-23. After an offseason that took a “run it back” approach outside of a few minor additions, there’s understandable concern about the Suns’ second unit — most of which stems from the backcourt, where Payne’s disappearing act in the playoffs...

Jock Landale looks like he's ready to lock down the Phoenix Suns' backup center job.

At Media Day last week, new arrival Jock Landale took to the podium for the first time as a member of the Phoenix Suns. The Australian’s message was simple: He wanted his Suns teammates to finally cave and try Vegemite, with Mikal Bridges being at the top of the list. “I love Vegemite, it’s a great spread for toast, but...

The Phoenix Suns may feature Dario Saric in a different role moving forward.

Despite the storm clouds swirling overhead in the desert, Phoenix Suns training camp is finally here. It’s a moment Dario Saric has been awaiting for over a year. After tearing his ACL in Game 1 of the 2020 NBA Finals, Saric had to watch from the sidelines as his team went up 2-0 in the series…and then went 0-for-4 the...

Dario Saric's inconsistent run at EuroBasket 2022 is ultimately encouraging for the Phoenix Suns.

In the dog days of the NBA calendar, with NFL and college football back on the menu, it’s understandable that Dario Saric’s time at EuroBasket 2022 was not high on people’s priority lists. For the box score surfers, this was the uncommon occasion where the numbers were almost perfectly aligned with the eye test: Saric had a very inconsistent six games for Team Croatia. In five group stage games and the Round of 16 loss to Finland, Saric averaged 9.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. He committed nearly as many turnovers (15) as he did assists (19), shot just 34.6 percent from the field and made only 30.8 percent of his 3s. Getting benched in crunch-time of…

On the latest Bourguet Breakdown, a healthy Dario Saric could revitalize Cam Payne for the Phoenix Suns.

Phoenix Suns fans have spent the last month waiting for a Kevin Durant trade to materialize, but in the meantime, they largely have the same roster to look forward to next season.

Dario Saric is getting closer to a return for the Phoenix Suns

It’s been 367 days since Dario Saric tore his right ACL in Game 1 of the 2021 NBA Finals. It’s been a long road to recovery — one made even more difficult after Saric underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right meniscus two months ago. Saric was in attendance at the Phoenix Suns’ first Summer League game in Las Vegas on Friday night, and he confirmed he’s been using his summer to take the next steps toward a return to action. “It’s been good, since the season was over, I stayed here, working out with the coaches here, preparing myself for the next season,” Saric told PHNX Sports. “I didn’t play last season because of injuries, so trying to get in…

Phoenix Suns big man Dario Saric spoke with the media for the first time in months.

For any basketball player, the dream of reaching the NBA Finals and winning a championship starts as a kid. For Dario Saric, that dream came crashing down in Game 1 of last year’s Finals, when he tore his ACL in his first two minutes on the court. Not only was he out for the rest of a series the Phoenix...
