Jared Dudley coming home to the Suns... but it’s not the same Suns

Former and current Phoenix Suns forward Jared Dudley wants to restore the Suns spirit, but he’s going to have to do it amid a lot of losses at first. Jared Dudley writes that he is “Coming Home” to the Phoenix Suns, that he wants to help the Suns recreate that wonderful chemistry from the 2008-2010 teams. He talks about how all the team’s best players created that chemistry, from a crazy fun Shaquille O’Neal to sage advice from stars like the venerable Steve Nash and Grant Hill. You really should check out the whole article here. Shaq was just a dude you always wanted to be...

Remembering Amare, Amar’e, Amare’, STAT and Sun Tzu as a Phoenix Suns luminary

The Bright Side staff shares memories of Amare Stoudemire’s epic Phoenix Suns career. Amare Stoudemire retired on Tuesday of this week, putting another nail in the coffin of the Seven Seconds or Less Suns that revolutionized the NBA. Stoudemire himself redefined the power forward/center position in the early-2000s from being a big back-to-the-basket bruiser to being an epically mobile face-up-and-driver. I never had the pleasure of covering ANY of the Suns luminaries as a media member, including one Amare Stoudemire. By the time I first stepped into a Suns locker room as an objective...

Phoenix Suns' Jared Dudley on treating others the way you want to be treated

Jared Dudley came into the NBA as a 6'7", pudgy, braid-wearing power forward with no real position in the NBA. After being named the ACC Player of the Year as a senior at BC, he was drafted late in the first round as a project that teams figured would eventually have to convert to small forward if he wanted to last. He was included as a throw-in on the Jason Richardson trade to Phoenix in his 2008 rookie year, but even when the trade happened a few onlookers suggested that Dudley was a sneaky-good throw-in that might turn some heads because of his all-out hustle. He played...

How Leandro Barbosa and Jared Dudley fit in with Phoenix Suns youth movement

The Phoenix Suns only dips into the free agent pool so far appear to be aimed at bringing some guys home to where their careers peaked and their hearts remained even after being traded away. Jared Dudley and Leandro Barbosa have always loved their time in Phoenix, to the point where they can't shake that love of the valley no matter how much time has passed. Phx!!!!!!!!!!! I'm coming Home!!!!!!!!!!!! JMZ is back!!!!!!!!!! — Jared Dudley (@JaredDudley619) July 2, 2016 Dudley After playing in Phoenix from 2008-2013, new Suns GM Ryan McDonough's first big move was to trade Dudley to the...

Wizards focus on improving what John Wall can't fix in free agency

In what has become an annual summer tradition, John Wall helped make some people very rich this summer. He has a proven track record of making moderately successful players better simply by how well and how frequently he can put them in positions to get easy baskets. This year, the lucky recipients of the John Wall Grant were Bradley Beal who signed a $128 million deal to stay in Washington, Jared Dudley who signed a $30 million deal with the Suns, and Garrett Temple who signed a $24 million deal with the Kings. After all three players signed their deals, they were all quick to thank Wall...

Jared Dudley offers to buy jersey number from Dragan Bender

A Twitter contract is binding. Jared Dudley wore number 3 when he played with the Phoenix Suns from 2009-2013. Dragan Bender wears number 3. Both are now on the same team.. So who gets number 3? Our own Dave King posed that question to Dudley on Twitter Saturday. The number is Bender's, he was drafted by the Suns about a week before Dudley returned to Phoenix. This is the time of year where deals are struck all over the league though. Can the number be bought? Rookie @DBender03 needs to find out how badly @JaredDudley619 wants #3 back — Dave King (@DaveKingNBA) July 2, 2016 It didn't...

Jared Dudley agrees to a deal with the Phoenix Suns

*Cues the "I'm Coming Home" montage* BREAKING: My Twitter sources have informed me that Jared Dudley has agreed to a 3-year/$30 million deal to return back to Phoenix. Paul Coro was first on the scene, beating out the powerhouse source hounds over at The Vertical: The Suns have agreed to a three-year, $30 million contract with Jared Dudley. — Paul Coro (@paulcoro) July 2, 2016 Take that Woj! Yeah! It is not a coincidence that Dudley got the same amount of many and years as Mirza Teletovic as the Suns were likely left with the decision of having to choose between the two. Due to the...

NBA Free Agency: Jared Dudley agrees to three-year, $30 million deal with Phoenix Suns

Suns sign Jared Dudley away from the Brooklyn Nets

Just hours after a report stating the Brooklyn Nets had offered free agent Jared Dudley a 2-year, $18 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical announced that the Phoenix Suns had signed him to a 3-year, $30 million. Jared Dudley has reached a 3-year, $30M deal with Suns, sources tell @TheVertical. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) July 2, 2016 So, there you have it, Dudley will not be playing for the Nets next season, as the Suns decided to go for the third year -- it was assumed that Phoenix would have the upper hand here, due to their past relationship. Now, the Nets...

Does Portland Signing Turner for 4 years $70 Million open the door for Nets to acquire Crabbe?

It's very hard to acquire a restricted free agent because that player's respective team has the right to match any offer. Which leads us to Allen Crabbe, who is a restricted free agent that the Nets reportedly have interest in, while the Portland Trail Blazers have the right to match. Signing Crabbe, 24, seemed unlikely heading into Friday, the start of free agency, because Portland seemed primed to match any offer. But, the odds suddenly became more likely later on in the day that Portland could potentially lose Crabbe, when Portland signed Evan Turner to a massive 4-year deal worth $70...
