Why you should be looking forward to the Ricky Rubio Experience with the Phoenix Suns

Locked On Suns Wednesday: Reassessing the Suns’ rotation after preseason

Locked On Suns Wednesday: Reassessing the Suns’ rotation after preseason

Listen for how our assessment of the Suns’ rotation has changed after the preseason and breakouts from the rookies as well as Kelly Oubre claiming the starting job. We break down what we expect Monty Williams’ rotation to look like next week and beyond. Williams has stayed true to his 10-man rotation idea, but have too many players forced his hand for playing time? The starting lineup seems like a lock — Ricky Rubio, Devin Booker, Kelly Oubre Jr., Dario Saric, and Deandre Ayton — and it’s one that could be prolific offensively. Also, the second unit has the chance to be the best...

Preseason Open Thread: Suns vs. Nuggets

Photo by Matthew Stockman/ What will we learn from the Suns’ final tune up? Probable starters: Suns - Ricky Rubio, Devin Booker, Mikal Bridges, Kelly Oubre Jr., Deandre Ayton Nuggets - Jamal Murray, Gary Harris, Torrey Craig, Jerami Grant, Nikola Jokic Dario Saric (quad) is out tonight, per Suns head coach Monty Williams. However, it’s not serious as Williams wants to be very precautious with any injuries right now. Paul Millsap (calf) will sit out for Denver, which means Grant and Michael Porter Jr. will pick up the slack at power forward alongside Jokic. What are you most...

Miss the 24 three point explosion by the Suns? Check it here

The shorthanded Suns would have to face the full strength Conference Finalists at the Moda Center in front of their rabid fans without the services of Ricky Rubio, Devin Booker or Deandre Ayton. Prior to the game, the Suns announced that they would start Jevon Carter at point guard. Yes, that Jevon who was a throw-in to the Jackson/Melton trade last...

Photo by Barry Gossage/NBAE via Rubio’s play style seems to be blend perfectly into the Suns’ new vision. So this is what having a point guard is like? Within the first five minutes of the Suns’ preseason opener against the Minnesota Timberwolves, one stark difference could easily be noticed.
