Starting today, Suns veterans are beginning to return to the arena for daily workouts with new Suns players and the rook with training camp only 4 weeks away. As far as I can tell, young guys Kendall Marshall and Markieff Morris are already in Phoenix and at the arena daily for instruction and workouts. New guys like Michael Beasley and Wes Johnson have been in and out, as have Sebastian Telfair, Shannon Brown and a rehabbing Channing Frye.
Surely, Jared Dudley is announcing to the world that daily Suns pickup games are on the agenda starting this week. Let's get it!
Also in the news:
Suns C Marcin Gortat is still leading Poland through the Eurobasket 2013 qualifying tourney. His Poland team is now 3-2 and tied for second in their group (the top 2 from each group is guaranteed entry into next year's tourney in Slovenia). Poland projects to go 2-1 in their final 3 games, a good sign for a top-2 finish.
Gortat is Top 3 on every important statistical list for a center - scoring, overall rebounding, defensive rebounding and blocks. His Poland team is not very talented, so his contributions are amidst double- and triple-teams. Not too shabby.
