  • Suns president: ‘We’ll make a quick decision’ regarding Lindsey Hunter’s future

    Following Tuesday night’s 101-98 loss to the Houston Rockets, the 2012-13 Phoenix Suns are bordering on a level of futility not seen since the franchise’s expansion season back in 1968-69. The Suns have lost 10 in a row — including four by 14 or more points — and are essentially competing for one of the […]
  • Suns Strokes: Bizarre ending hands Phoenix its tenth consecutive loss

    The 2012-13 Phoenix Suns have invented new ways to lose games this season, but Tuesday’s 101-98 loss to the Houson Rockets takes the cake. In a game that had playoff implications for Houston, Lindsey Hunter’s squad went toe-to-toe with the Rockets for 47:59. However, it was the last second that sent Phoenix home with its […]
  • Suns’ Babby: Going to take the best player available in the draft

    Phoenix Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby is not trying to sugarcoat his team’s current campaign. “It’s been a painful season,” Babby told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Tuesday. “But there will be a reward for it, on some level, when we get a very high draft pick.” The Suns, with a record […]
  • Dudley: ‘I don’t know why Beasley would tune out the coaches’

    Phoenix Suns small forward Michael Beasley dropped 25 points while shooting 12-17 from the field and grabbing six boards against Golden State Friday.

  • Mock draft has Suns nabbing McLemore, Plumlee

    The Phoenix Suns are playing out the string of a disappointing NBA season and will miss the playoffs for the third straight year. That’s the bad news.

  • Former Suns teammates give Robin Lopez a retro black jersey

    Robin Lopez was with the Phoenix Suns from the time they drafted him in 2008 until the time he was traded away in 2012. He averaged 5.8 points per game and pulled down 3.3 rebounds per contest and played in a Western Conference Finals series. However, the one thing he didn’t do — and he […]
  • Historically bad season puts Suns in precarious position

    Only one team in Phoenix Suns history has been worse than the 2012-13 version. The first one. The 1968-69 expansion Suns won just 16 games for head coach Johnny “Red” Kerr. They finished last in the Western Division. The next year, Phoenix won 39 games and lost in the playoffs. They failed to reach the […]
  • Scola: ‘We don’t know how to play basketball’

    With nine days (five games) remaining before summer vacation — beginning early for the third straight year — the Suns are assured of finishing with no better than the second-worst record in franchise history. Win out, and they will go 28-54, a mark established by the 1987-88 team. Lose just once more, and only the […]

  • Suns’ Lindsey Hunter: ‘I don’t listen’ to Michael Beasley

    Michael Beasley’s outspoken comments seem to be ruffling feathers once again in the Suns’ organization. Beasley, who scored 25 points on 12-of-17 shooting in the Suns’ 111-107 loss to the Warriors on Friday night, said he credits his recent improved play to tuning out the people around him — including his coaches. “I’ve stopped listening […]

  • PJ Tucker ‘more aggressive’ since return to starting lineup

    Four weeks ago he lost his starting job. Three weeks ago he did not get a chance to do his job, as his name was not called during a loss at Atlanta on March 15. However, since that DNP-Coach’s Decision (his first of the season for non-injury reasons), PJ Tucker has put together his best […]
  • Lon Babby was not ready to leave the Suns

    Lon Babby said he did not simply jump at the opportunity to sign a two-year contract extension to remain the president of basketball operations for the Phoenix Suns, but came to the decision only after thinking about whether or not it was the best thing for him and his family.

  • Suns analyst: Team can use final games to get good look at roster

    The Phoenix Suns are not going to make the playoffs. In fact, they’re not even close. However, that does not mean the last eight games of the season are little more than a waste of time or a chance to strengthen draft position. “You definitely can kind of look at guys and see where they’re […]
