It was less than five months ago when Suns coach Jeff Hornacek openly feared another team scooping up forward P.J. Tucker in free agency. As of Thursday, Hornacek no longer has to worry. The Phoenix...

PJ Tucker will remain a Phoenix Sun

Seemingly out of the blue, the Phoenix Suns have reportedly agreed to sign P.J. Tucker to a new contract...$16.5 million over a three year period.  The third year also apparently includes a non guaranteed $3.8 million as part of the deal.

The #Suns have agreed to a three-year, $16.5M contract with restricted free agent P.J. Tucker. They keep their leader and top defender.

P.J. Tucker has not signed his 3-year, $16.5M deal with the #Suns yet but the agreement includes a non-guaranteed $3.8M in the third year.

More clearly stated, $3.8M of P.J. Tucker's third-year salary will not be guaranteed. That is not a $16.5M contract's 3rd-year salary. #Suns

Tucker had expressed his interest in staying with Phoenix, and it looks like both sides will be able to make it work in what seems to be a very reasonable deal for the Suns.

In an interesting turn of events, Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Suns are meeting today with restricted free agent point guard Isaiah Thomas.


It appears that the first meeting involving the Suns and a free agent from outside the organization will be with Isaiah Thomas.

The 5'9 shoot-first point guard enjoyed a stellar season in 2013/14, posting career highs of 20.3 PPG and 6.3 APG, with a PER of 20.5.

This is certainly surprising news considering that the Suns already have Goran Dragic and their own restricted free agent Eric Bledsoe in the fold, plus the first-round draft pick they just used on Tyler Ennis. Are they looking to turn the Slash Bros into a triumvirate? Is this a prelude to another (bigger?) trade? Will the 2014/15 Phoenix Suns consist entirely of point guards?

Stay tuned.
