The Phoenix Suns will be back in Flagstaff to hold training camp at Northern Arizona University on Sept. 25-28, the team announced Friday.

Following training camp, the team also announced its open practice in Phoenix at its home court of Talking Stick Arena Sept. 29 at noon.

Last year, the Suns held its open scrimmage at the Prescott Valley Event Center, home of the NBA G League affiliate Northern Arizona Suns.

In 2016, the Suns held camp in Flagstaff for the 20th time, where they also had an open scrimmage at NAU’s J. Lawrence Walkup Skydome.

This marks the sixth straight year the Suns will train in Flagstaff.

Open practice is free and more details will be released later.

Phoenix will begin the 2018-19 regular season at home against the Dallas Mavericks Oct. 17.
