The Phoenix Suns enter the 2023-24 season with a reinvigorated roster and attitude as they look to build on last season.

They’ll open the season Oct. 24 at the Golden State Warriors and they’ll face the Utah Jazz on Oct. 28 in the home opener.

Into the backcourt are sharpshooters Bradley Beal and Eric Gordon. Gone are Chris Paul and Cameron Payne. Devin Booker and Kevin Durant are back for another run at a title. Also in is new head coach Frank Vogel after Monty Williams was shown the door following the Suns’ six-game loss to the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference Semifinals last season.

Beal averaged 23.2 points per game for the Washington Wizards last season despite missing 22 games, something that has become a habit since 2018-19. Gordon, a 15-year pro, averaged 12.4 points per between the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Clippers in 2022-23.

Paul, who spent three spectacular seasons in the Valley, was a two-time all-star here but was hampered by injuries at crucial times for Phoenix. He was part of the Beal trade. Payne, a role-playing guard who averaged 10.3 points per game last season, was traded for the roster spot and the need for draft picks.

New to the frontcourt this season are Keita Bates-Diop, Bol Bol, Toumani Camara, Drew Eubanks, Chimezie Metu and Yuta Watanabe.

The 2024 NBA All-Star Game will be Feb. 18 in Indianapolis.
