SUNS RUMORS & GOSSIP

2016 Phoenix Suns Prospect Profile: Zhou Qi

The big man from China is considered a late first round prospect by many. Does he make sense for the Suns at 28? Zhou Qi is a rare prospect.

His measurements at the NBA Draft Combine were the second best on record, behind only Rudy...

Elementary? Not quite, but Watson could work out well for the Suns

Earl Watson isn’t a splashy hire for the Phoenix Suns. He will coach his first NBA game at the age of 37. He’s been an assistant coach for only two years since his playing career ended, and only one of those was spent in the NBA Jason Kidd showed that a relatively quick transition from playing to coaching can work, but for every Kidd, there’s a Derek Fisher (and then some)...

Seth Curry reminds us he can ball too

That time surely has passed as the older Curry has taken over the mantle as the most popular member of this ultra-talented family.

April Autopsy: Phoenix Suns

What’s the most productive thing the Phoenix Suns did this past season? One could make a strong case that shipping Markieff Morris to Washington and getting so much in return — including what will become a lottery pick to stack on top of a likely top-five selection — is the best answer.
