Should The Suns pursue the recently released Luis Scola?

GM Daryl Morey has ramped up his seemingly never-ending quest to obtain a superstar by releasing Luis Scola, who had 3 years and little over $30 million remaining on his deal.Houston has...

Channing Frye is progressing ahead of schedule

2

Prior to Monday's game in Houston, Channing Frye took 100 mid-range shots, The Arizona Republic Reports. This is a good indication that Frye could be ready to play before his original 2-3 week diagnosis. This news could not come at a better time for this team which is on it's last legs.

The 50 greatest rebounders of ALL time.

+

Usually, I go to bleacherreport.com for humor but this guy put together an impressive list of the 50 best rebounders of all time. A few notable Suns are in the list as well, although I thought one Sun in particular should of been ranked higher, especially considering his size and the era he played in.

The Funniest Bleacher Report Trade Scenarios Of All Time

4

Some obviously very professional sports reporter thought up 12 trades that would save the Phoenix Suns and avoid us rebuilding. It's obvious he has a very, very sharp basketball mind and researched these scenarios hours before writing up this...Well, work of art.

Luis Scola and Kevin Martin Available

10

There are rumblings coming from Houston that shooting guard Kevin Martin and power forward Luis Scola are available for trade. I know I wasn't the only Suns fan here who wanted the Suns to pursue Scola after Amare left for New York. Maybe now this could be our chance. the 6 foot 9 forward is having a career year could be exactly what we are looking for. A consistent scoring and rebounding threat in the paint. Not to mention he is a great passer at the four. On the other hand we have Martin, who would fit well in our system but other than this year he is always a huge injury risk. Also, Martin has 4 years left on his deal and Scola has 5. That's a lot of money to commit to two players, especially with the new CBA coming around. Let the rosterbating begin! The NBA trade deadline is less than a month away and experts are predicting that a lot of struggling teams will be desperate to unload talent for expiring deals to save money.

Vince Carter will forgo Knee Surgery opting for a rest regiment

1

According to Yahoo Sports Vince Carter will forgo arthroscopic knee surgery and instead take up a regimen of treatment and rest. I have confidence that whatever our training staff does but I hope this is the best decision for the long haul. The season is still young and I'd rather have a 100% Vince Carter in a month then an 80% Carter for the whole year. Anyways, Carter could be ready to suit up as early as Sunday vs the Clippers.

Another trade in the Suns future?

1

The site HoopsHype.com is floating a rumor from ESPN and the Arizona Republic that the Suns are shopping swingman Josh Childress. So far, there hasn't been any bites but judging by all of the big moves going on lately, I wouldn't doubt that he will be traded. I hope we trade Pietrus instead but if not J-chill deserves to get consistent minutes on an NBA squad, he is a great NBA talent. Whatever happens, I hope we can pull-off another big deal to land legit PF to replace Amare and put Channing back on the bench where he belongs. It's clear that the new front office isn't afraid to mix this squad up.

Grant Hill out with a sprained foot

5

According to Yahoo! Sports, Grant Hill sprained his foot today in practice and will be out for the immediate future. No timetable has been set for his return. This is very disheartening news since behind J-Rich, Hill has been our rock. Scoring on a nightly basis, getting rebounds, distributing the ball, and defending the other's team best scorer from night to night. Luckily, we have a slew of bodies at the forward spot and I for one will be very excited to see Turk play some minutes at his natural position. Also, with Grant's absence J-Chill should see some more minutes and become more acclimated in the offense.

Kurt Rambis Doesn't Show Love.....Love.

9

3 games into the NBA season and Kurt Rambis is already placing Kevin Love in the doghouse in favor of (drum roll...) Anthony Tolliver. Love, is thus far averaging 14 PPG 13RPG 85%FT and 40%3P in just 25 minutes a game. The whole reason I'm making this post is because last night I had a dream that we traded one of our swing man and a future 1st rounder for Kevin Love. I know, this probably wont happen and Love is probably too nice of a guy to demand a trade but you can't blame a guy for dreaming, right? I couldn't think of a guy who would be better suited for our system then Mr. Love. I hate being the guy who makes a post about some stupid never to happen trade scenario but...I just had too. I know i'm not the only person on this site who has a man-crush on Kevin Love.

Charles Barkley Calls Out Lebron

6

Lebron James recently made a statement saying: "Don't think for one min that I haven't been taking mental notes of everyone taking shots at me this summer. And I mean everyone" To Which Charles Barkley responded back by calling Lebron James a punk. The Chuckster....Gotta love it.

Our Jared Dudley Makes the All NBA Underrated Team

Charley Rosen of Foxsports lists his NBA all-underrated team with OUR Jared Dudley being the starting small forward.

The Suns could be a match up problem for the Heat?

4

Charley Rosen (He is one of my favorite NBA writers who manages to keep his bias out of articles for the most part) writes about the strength's and weaknesses of the Heat's roster. He lists teams with big front lines and fast break teams as a problem for the Heat. They're basically the Ultimate Tweener team. They have a weak front line, are weak at the point guard position and only have two natural shooters in Jones and Miller. I mean, with that being said they're still going to win at least 60 games but they're far from being the Best Team to ever step on a basketball court. UPDATE: I forgot to Add Eddie House as being a shooter on the team but still, it will be rare to any mix of these three shooters on the court at the same time.

We were a Ron Artest put back and a few missed free throws from making the Finals last year and we're ranked 15. We're off the radar, just where us Suns' fans like it.
