Why DeMarre Carroll adding more pick-and-roll is a good idea

DeMarre Carroll's career arc is pretty incredible. He came into the league as a borderline player, and for two and a half seasons, looked like he was on the wrong side of that borderline. Then he landed in Utah, found an opportunity and made the most of it. He built off that into a strong season in 2013 with the Jazz, and parlayed that into a deal with Atlanta. Starting over with...

Report: Suns have no intention to trade unhappy Markieff Morris

In the summer of 2014, Markieff Morris took what he saw as a little less than market value — he has four years, $32 million left on his deal — to make sure his twin brother Marcus got paid and they could play together in Phoenix. Markieff then had a season that saw him regress — he was scoring more per game but being less efficient, all the while clashing with the Suns’ coaching...

Joe Johnson ever so subtly letting people know he's ready

Joe Johnson is a smart and often witty guy, even if he sometimes seems to hide it behind the (very) southern drawl of his Arkansas roots.
