Even though they're not in the playoffs, it's been a busy week for the Phoenix Suns.

Tuesday, Jeff Hornacek finished second in the NBA Coach of the Year voting.

Wednesday, guard Goran Dragic was named the league's Most Improved Player.

And Thursday, forward Channing Frye finished third in the NBA Sportsmanship Award voting, with Memphis Grizzlies guard Mike Conley winning the award. Frye received a total of 1,971 points, just 56 points out of second place.

The NBA will make a $10,000 donation on behalf of Conley to his charity of choice, the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, specifically for research pertaining to sickle cell anemia.

Frye was the Pacific Division's winner and one of six finalaists, including Boston's Jeff Green (Atlantic), Chicago's Mike Dunleavy (Central), Portland's Damian Lillard (Northwest) and Washington's Bradley Beal (Southeast).

The league will make a $5,000 donation to the Frye Family Foundation on behalf of the Suns veteran.

The award is voted on by NBA players.
