The Suns new hope at the point Goran Dragic opens the Diamondbacks game with the first pitch of the night. It wasn’t a strike, but that’s okay. We won’t judge.
NBA commissioner David Stern killed the New Orleans Hornets’ trade of Chris Paul after several owners complained about the league-owned team dealing the All-Star point guard to the Los Angeles Lakers, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Some owners pushed Stern to nullify the trade and that the Hornets be made to keep Paul on the roster for the foreseeable future, sources said. A chorus of owners were irate with the belief that the five-month lockout had happened largely to stop big-market teams from leveraging small-market teams for star players pending free agency.
The Houston Rockets also involved in the trade talks are trying to complete a deal that would then move Gasol to Houston and the Rockets’ Luis Scola, Kevin Martin and Goran Dragic to New Orleans along with Odom.
Widely considered the best point guard in the game. CP3 brings with him averages of 37.1 minutes, 18.7 points and 9.9 assists a game thru six seasons. Will Dwight Howard join the Lakers next??? Stay tuned.
Phoenix made a few roster signings over the last month to make millionaires — millionaires and that’s all well and good because it keeps the game we all love watching interesting especially if you dig the Suns.
Even cooler than those signings the Suns made to keep pace in the west, was the $1.2 million in donations Phoenix Suns Charities made to 157 deserving grant recipients.
“We are so proud of what you do for our community,” Phoenix Suns Charities Executive Director Kathryn Pidgeon told the attendees. “Who says we have bad news in this community? You are the good news.”
One of the single biggest contributions Phoenix Suns Charities made was of $100,000 to the Halle Heart Children’s Museum to help construction a new spotlight exhibit, “The Beat Goes On,” aimed at educating children about developing healthy ways to lower their risk of heart disease, obesity and high blood pressure.
The $1.2 million in grants, program support and scholarships puts the Phoenix Suns Charities organization at more than $10 million in donations since its 1988 inception.
Goran who? Â I have never seen or heard of this guy before draft night but, for him to be the future replacement for Steve Nash he’sÂ gottaÂ be pretty good. Â Right?
After much wrangling, more than a few doubts and some international diplomacy, the Suns finally have landed the player they expect to be Steve Nash’s backup this year. A source confirmed to Sporting News that Slovenian point guard Goran Dragic — whose rights were acquired in June in a draft-night trade with the Spurs — is intent on signing a contract of at least three years to play in Phoenix next year. There are still some administrative details to resolve for Dragic to get out of his European contract. He then must settle on a definitive contract with the Suns.
