Phoenix Suns officially end 2018-19 season with final media availability

Takeaways from the Suns’ final session, plus hear from some players. Even though the Phoenix Suns finished their season 19-63, with the top odds to land the No. 1 pick once more, who would’ve imagined all of the crazy turns it has taken? From starting off with a victory in blowout fashion over Dallas to having a franchise-worst 17-game losing streak sandwiched between the two highest points of the season, there’s been many peaks and valleys throughout the 82-game rigor for Phoenix. Along the way, the trades for Kelly Oubre Jr. and Tyler Johnson sparked a new energy into the locker...

Preview: Undermanned Suns face playoff-hopeful Kings

The Suns seek to even their season series 2-2 with the Kings tonight. The Game: Phoenix Suns @ Sacramento Kings The Time: 7:00 pm (Phoenix time) The Place: Golden 1 Center, Sacramento TV: Fox Sports Arizona Radio: 98.7 FM/1400 AM (Spanish) Less than a week ago, I thought that the Suns had a good shot at winning this game. That was before I knew that Kelly Oubre Jr. was going to miss the rest of the season. I also thought that Tyler Johnson would be back fairly soon and I had no idea the Josh Jackson would suffer an ankle sprain that could cause him to miss this game. The Suns don’t have...

Suns fall 118-98 to Pistons losing four of their last five games

Devin Booker’s 26 points and Deandre Ayton’s 20 wasn’t enough for a win We’ve seen this game before. Suns and Pistons going back and fourth keeping the game close until the Pistons ran away with it in the fourth. That was the story of their first matchup and the same story Thursday night in Phoenix.

Player development is working for the Phoenix Suns under Igor Kokoskov

Player development is working for the Phoenix Suns under Igor Kokoskov

The Suns’ young roster is improving under the tutelage of Kokoskov. “Igor’s teams have always had a player development focus, a creative style of play and a track record of success,” former Suns GM Ryan McDonough said in a statement following the hiring of Igor Kokoskov 10 months ago. What a whirlwind it has been for Kokoskov since his return to the Valley as the head coach of the Phoenix Suns. The man who hired him was fired five months later. He didn’t have competent point guard play until 65 percent through the season when Tyler Johnson debuted after being acquired from Miami....

Bulls flush Suns, solidify their 1.5% worse odds at the top overall pick in June

Rejoice, tank fans. Suns lose 116-101. Tankers will rejoice that the Suns are now three full games ahead of the Bulls in the tank race, leaving the Suns in pole position for a bottom-three record and the highest chance to draft Zion Williamson in June (14%). The Bulls will likely only have a 12.5% chance. Those fools. Personally, I’d have preferred a win, but here we are. The Suns players didn’t want to tank at all, but they were down the wrong players and lost their entire newly-formed but not solidified, identity. Kelly Oubre Jr. and Tyler Johnson, the architects of recent good play,...
