Phoenix Suns Announce Media Day and Training Camp Dates

A lot has happened this summer. A whirlwind of activity surrounding the draft and free agency tapered off to a drizzle as August crawled along. Now summer's oppressive reign is nearly over. Basketball season arrives to usurp the cruel tyrant from its blistering throne. While the desert is starting to cool off, it's about to start scorching on Planet Orange.

Next Starts Now starts Monday, October 1st.

That is when the Suns host their annual Media Day from 10-noon before heading to their traning camp at the RIMAC Arena (Recreation, IntraMural, Athletic Complex - like that really needed an explanation) at the University of California San Diego.

PHOENIX – The Phoenix Suns officially open their 45th NBA season on Monday, October 1, when the club hosts its annual Media Day on The Annexus Group Practice Court at US Airways Center. This season, for the third time, the Suns will report to San Diego, Calif. for training camp from October 2-6.

Media Day is Monday, October 1 with interview and photo availability from 10 a.m. to noon on The Annexus Group Practice Court at US Airways Center. At the conclusion, the team will depart for San Diego.

The training camp workout schedule begins at the University of California San Diego’s RIMAC Arena on Tuesday, October 2 and continues through Saturday, October 6.

The Suns will participate in two-a-days (10-noon & 6-8 pm) from Tuesday through Friday and close out the week with an intrasquad scrimmage at noon on Saturday. There will be media access to portions of the practices, so get ready for some legitimate basketball news (No, Jared Dudley's twitter stream doesn't count) headed into the preseason schedule.

The Suns open the preseason at the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday, October 10th at 7:00 pm (local time) before hosting the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday, October 12th at 7:00 pm.
