Suns double down on Dragic brothers

PHOENIX -- They're on opposite ends of the Suns' food chain but will be living under the same roof. Well, at least until the younger one finds his own place. It shouldn't take Zoran Dragic long to locate suitable accommodations. But carving out some space in Phoenix's crowded backcourt may take a while. "I know I'm starting from zero," Zoran, the newly...

Rowdy Autzen crowd is least of Arizona's worries vs. Oregon

To say Oregon's Autzen Stadium is going to be a place where it's hard to win would be an understatement. A place where it's hard to hear yourself think is another. It gets so loud for opponents, Oregon coach Mark Helfrich told the Portland Oregonian those who work in Autzen have to sign a waiver they won't sue because it gets so loud. "We literally do,"...

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Denver quarterback Peyton Manning is one touchdown pass short of 500 for his career, and just nine short of tying Brett Favre for the most in NFL history, heading into this week's game with the Cardinals.

Palmer's shoulder regresses; unlikely for Broncos game

TEMPE, Ariz. -- It appears the undefeated Arizona Cardinals will play a third consecutive game without starting quarterback Carson Palmer.

Coyotes' conundrum: Does Gagner fit better at center or wing?

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Is Sam Gagner a center or a wing? That question is preoccupying coach Dave Tippett as the Coyotes wind down the preseason.  It's the same question the Edmonton Oilers never fully answered before dealing him to Tampa, which shipped him to Arizona about an hour later, along with B.J. Crombeen on June 30.  For the first 10 days of training camp, Tippett had...

Arizona's unheralded Wright proves doubters wrong

TUCSON, Ariz. -- If Scooby Wright III was to ever be a college football coach, it's very clear one of the first places he'd look to recruit is Tiny Town, USA. Ordinary,Va. Little Hope, Ala. If the guy can play, he'll be there. Why, Ariz.? Why not? Because you never know when you'll find that hidden gem of a player. That "sleeper," as Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez...

Lessio aiming to stick with Coyotes this time around

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The first of the Coyotes' split-squad training camp practices had finished at least an hour earlier. Most of the players were either grabbing lunch in the Rinkside Club or chatting in the team lounge at Gila River Arena. Lucas Lessio was pacing the hallways.

Suns look shiny as training camp opens

PHOENIX -- It's hard to beat that new-karma smell. And instead of noticing the appealing aroma from last season's uprising may be starting to fade, the Suns' official media day offered an enhanced whiff of victory. True, that's not dissimilar from what you'd experience around most NBA teams in late September. But after things seemed a little off for most of the...

Oregon's Mariota has Arizona's undivided attention

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez jokes -- maybe wishes? -- that Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota was so good last year he should have come out for the NFL. OK, maybe there's a little self-interest there, in that Arizona wouldn't have to face Mariota again. No such luck. Mariota will be the focal point Thursday night when the Wildcats face No. 2 Oregon in Eugene...

A beanbag chair with a blanket that occasionally serves as a bunk for the night in case a West Coast game goes long.  You think Stewart does not know a few things about the Diamondbacks?  You have not seen him in action in that man cave.  "I'm a baseball junkie, man," said Stewart...
