Was firing Jeff Hornacek the wrong move for the Suns?

It’s been a long, arduous season for the Phoenix Suns, and anyone who is still loyal enough to call themselves a fan. If the firing of head coach, Jeff Hornacek, earlier this week wasn’t enough, one had the opportunity to hear a funny, albeit savagely truthful, Charles Barkley rant on how bad it’s looking in Phoenix these days. It’s been a mere three years of coaching for...

Figuring It Out in Phoenix

On Sunday, as January was winding to a close, so was the tenure of Jeff Hornacek as head coach of the Phoenix Suns. The handwriting was already on the wall long before the decision was made, however, the situation that Hornacek was in may not have been entirely his fault. The Suns, an interesting experiment under owner Robert Sarver and general manager Ryan McDonough, still have...

Fall of the Phoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns were once the symbol of the desert oasis. They were one of the most consistent teams in the NBA and by far the most popular draw in Phoenix. Oh, times have changed drastically. Whether it was the Charles Barkley era, where they had one of the biggest parades ever for a team finishing second, or the Steve Nash era, the Suns have always captured people’s hearts....

Raptors show trade interest in Suns’ P.J. Tucker

The Phoenix Suns remain one of the hottest items in NBA trade deadline rumblings these days after a coaching change and with names such as Markieff Morris and Tyson Chandler floating around. One name that hasn’t come up until now, though, is small forward P.J. Tucker, who would have some obvious value if the right team came calling. By the sounds of it, the right team might be...

Suns’ T.J. Warren to miss remainder of season with broken foot

I truly admire any Phoenix Suns fan that hasn’t made the plunge into the cesspool of all-out pessimism by now. Because this season is certainly giving them more than enough reasons to do so. According to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical on Tuesday, Suns forward T.J. Warren will miss the remainder of the 2015-16 season with a broken right foot. Phoenix Suns forward...

Suns GM McDonough says players stopped responding to Hornacek

PHOENIX -- Phoenix Suns general manager Ryan McDonough says coach Jeff Hornacek was fired because the players weren't responding to him.

While the Suns burn into ashes, the Bucks remain stuck in the muck

It’s one thing when a trade works handsomely for one party but leaves the other party in shambles. It’s quite another matter when a trade really doesn’t work for anyone. As we enter the month of February, the 2016 trade deadline isn’t that far away — barely more than two weeks. As teams prepare to shake up their rosters — either with an eye toward the future or in an...

Tyson Chandler trade interest low ahead of deadline

The Phoenix Suns might be one of the NBA’s oddest situations right now, but the most obvious trade asset at the NBA trade deadline, center Tyson Chandler, doesn’t sound like he’ll be leaving town. Chandler, 33, is in the middle of quite the odd season, posting a 5.7/8.4/0.6 slash line on an average of 23.5 minutes per game. This, paired with coaching changes, his massive contract...

Report: Suns want Steve Nash as head coach, but he isn’t interested

The Phoenix Suns are looking for a new head coach after kicking Jeff Hornacek to the curb on Monday, and a familiar name briefly emerged for consideration. Suns owner Robert Sarver reportedly has Steve Nash high on his list of coaching candidates. Unfortunately for Sarver and the Suns, the feeling is not mutual.

The Suns’ chemistry experiment blows up, and Phoenix fans pay the price

Barring an unlikely turn of events in the next 10 years, the Phoenix Suns will never again be coached by Jeff Hornacek. To understand how much this reality hurts Phoenicians — who know that the troubles of their NBA franchise are rooted in ownership far more than the head coach — you have to understand where Hornacek, and the Suns themselves, came from. * Growing up in Phoenix...

Just last Friday the Phoenix Suns signed Jordan McRae to a 10-day contract. McRae has been playing for the Delaware 87ers D-League team for less than a complete season, and he has already shown himself to be quite the player.

WATCH: Tyson Chandler Does Not Sharew Rebounds With Rookie Devin Booker

When you are a 7'11" center in the NBA you are expected to do one thing really, really well--rebound. You are expected to do a lot of things well, of course, but rebound is definitely near the top of the list.

Suns ‘might blink’ on Markieff Morris trade

The NBA trade deadline’s biggest question mark revolves around the Phoenix Suns and embattled forward Markieff Morris. Morris has a reputation as a disgruntled employee, which makes sense after he demanded a trade due to the team trading his twin brother, Marcus. There was the whole towel-throwing incident, too. To make matters worse, the Suns haven’t exactly given Morris consistent...

Phoenix Suns' first steps forward are backwards

While it’s painfully obvious now that the Phoenix Suns have erred terribly in their team-building process, I’m still not very sure where that misstep occurred. Maybe it was loading up on too many ball-dominant point guards—Eric Bledsoe, Goran Dragić, Isaiah Thomas—at the same time? Maybe it was sending away Marcus Morris to the Detroit Pistons in a salary dump, irreversibly...
