PHOENIX -- Brad Ziegler had good cause to be distracted Wednesday. His name has been mentioned in trade talks this week, although there seems little chance he is going anywhere. And after being struck in the rib cage by a line drive Tuesday, he was unable to pitch in the final game of the Detroit series. He was still in some pain, but at least he could chuckle about it. He knows...

Height-challenged Thomas never doubted himself

PHOENIX -- If you recklessly juggle the context, one of the quotes from Isaiah Thomas' introductory press conference would seem to be in lock step with national perception. "I'm not really supposed to be here," Thomas said during Monday's official hello to the Suns. You almost can hear NBA watchdogs from around the country nodding in agreement. Joining a team...

Warren makes stellar impression with Summer League Suns

PHOENIX -- In 2013, what happened for the Suns in Vegas didn't stay there. And that was a good thing. The rise of the Morris twins in the NBA Summer League continued in Phoenix, and P.J.
