Solar Flares - Open NBA/Suns Thread - Week of Sept 17-23

Just about everyone on the Suns is hitting the practice floor on a daily basis now, with only two weeks until training camps open and three weeks until the first preseason game.

This long summer of the unknown is about to come to an end!

Michael Beasley and Luis Scola arrived last week to join the rest of the Suns crew already working out together. The only Suns players not already on hand are Marcin Gortat (who less than 2 weeks ago finished an 8-game sked to qualify for Eurobasket 2013 in Slovenia) and 17-year veteran Jermaine O'Neal, he of the one-year minimum contract.

This is the weekly open thread to talk anything Suns.

Will the Suns sign another player or two for look-sees at training camp? A couple of summer league guys are coming, but sometimes the team signs a veteran still looking for work, just to see if he fits into the rotation in any way.

Will we start hearing more and more about who looks good at the pickup games at the Suns arena? Workouts are closed to media for the second year in a row, so we're relegated to third-hand info and occasional suns.com videos. But hey, that's better than nothing!

Is a 5-day training camp enough time to install the offense and defense for what looks like five new regular rotation players? Who knows, but that sure seems short.

Let's get to it!
