In what is unquestionably an aggressive move to court soon-to-be free agent Kevin Durant to Phoenix, your Suns announced plans to build a state-of-the-art training facility at Camelback Road and 44th Street.

It’s privately financed, it will feature the latest innovations in sports science and player development, and it will include top of the line amenities for both the Suns and Mercury.

General Manager James Jones complimented your leader, Suns owner Robert Sarver on Friday.

“Robert Sarver’s investment in our new training facility demonstrates his commitment to ensuring we have the proper resources to compete at the highest level,” Jones said. “There are extensive limitations to the player development and training space available in our nearly 30 year old arena. The development of this stand-alone, secure and private facility will enhance our player health, development and wellness capabilities, and allow us to retain and attract the best basketball talent to the Valley for years to come.”

Hot dog. Monty Williams news and practice facility news all in one day. Your Suns are moving in the right direction, because there’s only one direction to go.
