The Phoenix Suns wouldn’t be sitting at .500 right now without Frank Kaminsky and JaVale McGee. In Tuesday’s game against a New Orleans Pelicans side missing its two best players, with a first-year head coach at the helm, the Suns found themselves trailing by as many as 20 points in the first half. That they were able to turn it...

The Phoenix Suns are declining Jalen Smith's third-year rookie team option.

Jalen Smith had a lot to prove heading into his second NBA season. He barely played as a rookie, his most favorable position on the floor was already occupied by Deandre Ayton and JaVale McGee, and even in terms of trade value, the former 10th overall pick had a lot of ground to make up in order to become an...

The Phoenix Suns are off to a 1-3 start, with Wednesday’s loss to the Sacramento Kings serving as perhaps their most discouraging defeat yet. Going 1-2 against playoff teams over a three-games-in-four-nights stretch was one thing, but failing to turn a winnable game into a blowout and getting smoked by a Harrison Barnes game-winning 3? That was quite another. https://twitter.com/GeraldBourguet/status/1453577327955243012...

Recently of the Toronto Raptors, Ish Wainwright adds another practice body after the Suns waived Chasson Randle, who was on a training camp deal. “Blessed to be a part of a championship team,” Wainwright said of joining the Suns. “A lot of vets I get to...

Let’s not beat around the bush here: So far, the Phoenix Suns have not looked like a very good basketball team. Through the first three games of the 2021-22 NBA season, the Suns are 1-2. They got drilled by 12 in their season opener at home against a Denver Nuggets team they swept in the playoffs last year, bounced back...

The Phoenix Suns' win over the Los Angeles Lakers proves defenses need to start accounting for Mikal Bridges

During the Phoenix Suns’ 115-105 throttling of the Los Angeles Lakers that was nowhere near as close as the final score indicated, it was easy to get caught up in the various storylines. The Suns had bounced back from an ugly, season-opening loss with a decisive road win over the Lakers in which they led by as many as 30...

The Phoenix Suns lost their 2021-22 NBA season opener to the Denver Nuggets in disappointing fashion.

Coming off an NBA Finals appearance, the Phoenix Suns were armed with continuity and home-court advantage against an opponent they’d swept in their last four meetings who was still missing its second-best player. As such, the Suns felt like heavy favorites to win their 2021-22 season opener Wednesday night. Unfortunately, they submitted the type of sloppy, dysfunctional performance that was...

What is the next step in Devin Booker's evolution with the Phoenix Suns?

Devin Booker’s progression to NBA stardom has been nothing short of astounding since he first entered the league. Once tabbed as a Klay Thompson-esque spot-up shooter and little else, each new season in the pros has unlocked a new layer of his game. When they labeled him as a catch-and-shoot guy, he proved he could score from anywhere on the...

Landry Shamet has earned a four-year contract extension with the Phoenix Suns

Another 2018 first-round pick on the Phoenix Suns joined Mikal Bridges with a new contract extension on Monday. No, unfortunately not Deandre Ayton. Landry Shamet, of course! On Sunday, when Bridges’ new four-year, $90 million deal was reported, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski snuck another interesting tidbit in there: The Suns had discussed extensions with both Ayton and Shamet, who has yet...
