It's been entirely too long without some Phoenix controversy, the fuel of the Suns machine. Sean McDonough is in to save the day. Speaking with Jon Bloom on 98.7 FM in Phoenix on Friday, the newest voice of Monday Night Football stated that his brother, Suns GM Ryan McDonough, wanted to keep Isaiah Thomas. Then head coach Jeff Hornacek wasn't having it.

"Ryan took the fall for the Isaiah trade, but he never wanted to trade him. Hornacek kept pushing Ryan to trade him."

Give it a listen. Thomas is discussed about 10 minutes in.
