Perhaps one way for the Toronto Raptors to avoid paying luxury tax penalties next season is to trade 25-year-old big man Jonas Valanciunas. .@ZachLowe_NBA Predicts the Raptors will swap Jonas Valanciunas for Tyson Chandler. pic.twitter.com/sgsJe6mUdB — Phoenix Suns Insider (@InsiderSuns) October 13, 2017 Zach Lowe wrote that while he would make sense for the Magic, the two teams are forbidden to make trades with each other because Toronto let former team executive Jeff Weltman out of his contract to join Orlando. Instead, Lowe suggests they move him to the Phoenix Suns for Tyson...

Rumor: Suns prepared to deal Tyson Chandler, Jared Dudley

Rumor: Suns prepared to deal Tyson Chandler, Jared Dudley

We’re going to be having this conversation a lot. Are you ready to do this for the next several weeks months? WELL GET READY. Zach Lowe of ESPN have some news on the possibility of the Phoenix Suns trading Tyson Chandler or Jared Dudley. For the 8th straight year, Lowe broke the NBA down into tiers during the preseason. Spoiler alert, he’s not high on the Suns. Along with Dallas, Sacramento, and the Lakers, he places Phoenix into what he calls “Lottery West.” The 8th Annual Tiers of the NBA: my version of preseason power rankings: https://t.co/NUbj6Zlq5e— Zach Lowe...

Practice Notebook: Suns show new promising lineup variation; Jackson ready to bring on the challenge of NBA’s elite

Thursday’s observations from Suns media availability. In Tuesday’s preseason opener in Portland against the Trail Blazers, which the Suns came out as winners in a 114-112 comeback, head coach Earl Watson featured a starting lineup of Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker, T.J. Warren, Marquese Chriss, and Tyson Chandler. With lineups still fluid at this point in time, it’s entirely possible we could see a different edition this time around in Salt Lake City against the Jazz on Friday. During Thursday’s media availability, again which only lasts a portion of practice, Watson showcased a new...
Dear Phoenix Suns: Please respect the game in 2018

Dear Phoenix Suns: Please respect the game in 2018

Nix the encore of the “strategic resting” that claimed Eric Bledsoe, Tyson Chandler, and Brandon Knight last season There is an adage around the NBA that goes “Don’t mess with the game.” The belief is that nothing good happens when one does not approach the game in the correct way. Looking back on the 2016-17 season, it is impossible to say with even a modicum of believability that the Phoenix Suns did not mess with the game by resting healthy players for significant stretches. Consider this a plea for a different tack in 2017-18. When the order came down after the All-Star break...

Second unit piece — Media Day

The guys getting a chance on the Suns’ second unit will determine how things break for the team this season and in the future. The Phoenix Suns, even after making great strides toward a more top-down buy-in to the long game of team-building this year, face challenges in forming a balanced rotation amid an influx of players and health questions across the roster. For now, there is a Tyson Chandler, Jared Dudley and Eric Bledsoe-sized role in the middle of the rotation. Training camp brings fresh optimism, as well as a return to normal for these three players, who saw their roles reduced...

Is Tyson Chandler ready for more rest in 2017-18?

Is Tyson Chandler ready for more rest in 2017-18?

A well-rested Chandler is entering his 17th season playing for the Phoenix Suns. Last season with the Phoenix Suns was one of the best of Tyson Chandler’s career by many measures. He had the third highest rebound per game total (11.5) of his 16 year career and also had his second highest field goal percentage (67.1%) and career best free throw percentage (73.4%). Adjusting for playing time, Tyson actually had a career best 14.9 rebounds per 36 minutes played. If he had qualified for NBA leaders based on minutes played Chandler’s 11.5 rebounds per game would have put him eighth in the...
