It’s ridiculous that the NBA hasn’t finished their investigation yet. That story broke 11 months ago.

Why would it be taking this long unless the NBA is building a case? You would think it would be wrapped up if it was simply a case of he said/she said type stuff.

Dave King does a training camp preview show. I hope to get around to watching it.

Suns sign Frank Jackson and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot to training camp deals.

Here are the stats on 27 year old small forward Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot.

I remember him best from one disastrous blowout loss during the bubble season. We'd started looking like we were turning it around following an 8 or 9 game losing streak and then proceeded to get swept on what should have been a pretty easy road trip back east. With Irving out and Durant not yet available, we faced a G League team from Brooklyn and got our butts kicked. TLC wasn't the star but he was pretty effective against us.

I'd be shocked if Frank Jackson or Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot make the Suns 15 man roster. Mostly I think they are training camp additions. I like Frank Jackson probably the best. To be honest, I havn't watched TLC a lot, so maybe I'm missing something.

My guess is the Suns will keep the open roster spot until they find a keeper like Biyombo.

Yeah I have no knowledge or expectations for either guy, I was more lamenting our ability to make a marginal player look effective.

I wish Damion Lee and Okogie were also on a training camp deals. Give the 13th 4th roster spot to two of the four, Okogie, Jackson, TLC, or Lee. Whoever looks the best.

I think it was Brian Windhorst who said there will likely be more than the usual number of sellers at the trade deadline because there are so many good teams.

When some teams inevitably fall short, there will be players available. I'm hoping the Suns are planning for this unless a good deal comes along.

The Pelicans and Clippers really took advantage last season.

James Jones speaks out about Robert Sarver.

The acoustics are very bad. It's hard to hear the interview.

Monty Williams never doubted Deandre Ayton would be back.

Deandre Ayton has put in a lot of work and improved in the off season.

Monty talks about expanding Ayton's offensive role. It sounds like the Suns will be looking for other players to create.

It's great to know the players have been in the gym a lot this past summer. This is something that hasn't been mentioned.
