PHOENIX Lon Babby has a new two-year contract to stay on as Suns president of basketball operations through 2014-15. The team announced a contract extension on Tuesday. Lon has led our front office during this important transition period for the organization and he has my full support as we continue to rebuild, said Suns Managing Partner Robert Sarver.

As the two players untangled themselves and exchanged words, their teammates crowded around them which is when Suns’...

Ryan Hollins And Michael Beasley Both Ejected After Scuffle

During the fourth quarter of Wednesday night’s matchup between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Phoenix Suns, Ryan Hollins and Michael Beasley were both ejected for being, well, idiots. After the Clippers scored, Hollins put Suns point guard Goran Dragic in a headlock for no apparent reason. As Dragic tried to get free from Hollins’ arms, players from both teams came over to...
