Where exactly are the Suns headed? With Markieff Morris wanting to be traded it could change the whole dynamics of the team. They sniffed the post season and had two wonderful years then suddenly seemed to be in constant conflict internally.

We’ll get a peak at how they intend to improve defensively when they face 3 top defensive squads in preseason versus our Rockets, the Spurs and the best second half defensive squad the Utah Jazz. Perhaps that will give us an indication of how they intend to improve or maybe it will leave us with more questions regarding whether the Suns plan on ignoring Morris’ trade request and if so how that will affect the long term plans for Phoenix.
