An off-season look at a valued employee of the Phoenix Suns was as easy as watching NBA TV's broadcast of a Team USA exhibition game.
But we were required to pay attention, of course, to the other team.
Sunday's other team was Argentina, which showed up in Barcelona for this pre-Olympic friendly with recent Suns acquisition Luis Scola still working as its low-post henchman...
Names like Goran Dragic, Michael Beasley and Wesley Johnson weren’t going to grab the majority of the headlines. Not with “Steve Nash is a Laker” demanding all the attention.
Take a closer look from the Suns’ point of view, however, and you’ll find something nearly as shocking as L.A.’s new No. 10.
Phoenix’s management is playing it smart in the offseason.

This past weekend we finally saw some feistiness from Team USA. There were a few scuffles with the Argentina national team in what was supposed to be a “friendly” exhibition. One of the main enforcers for Argentina was none other than former Houston Rocket Luis Scola.

He came to the Suns as a free agent in 2011, signing a one-year deal.
Shooting guard is a position of need for the Suns...
The Suns will sign P.J. Tucker to a two-year contract with partial guarantees on the first year.
The Hornets are attempting to execute a sign-and-trade with the Suns for Robin Lopez.
Long before the d-bags in Miami were rocking black uniforms and acting like jerks, Charles Barkley and the Phoenix Suns rocked the cleanest black jerseys in pro sports. (Shut up Raiders fans… you know I don’t speak hoodrat) Uni-watch.com broke the news that the Suns are bringing back the classic 90′s black uniforms that Barkley,

We have already gone over our list of the top ten 2013 unrestricted NBA free agents. Here are the best restricted free agents who are scheduled to hit the market next summer. Don’t forget, a team has the right to match any offer sheet a restricted free agent signs which makes it difficult to sign away a player.

Ray Allen is now hitting the links in Miami. Steve Nash is a member of the Lakers. Joe Johnson is hanging out with the hipsters in Brooklyn. The big names naturally attracted most of the attention when they switched teams this offseason. Stars sell tickets, and NBA Finals hopefuls were thrilled to add to their squads with proven players. Other moves that were no less important to...
