At least one player soon to be a Phoenix Suns player will be at the annual NBA Draft Combine, starting on Wednesday this week.

We know that the Phoenix Suns would rather not draft four players from the 2014 NBA Draft, but they will likely draft at least one player who attends this week's NBA Draft Combine in Chicago.

TheĀ complete list was released today (click link for full list).

Everyone will participate in the measurements and interviews phases, but as usual some of the top talents will forego the live drills for various reasons:

  • Andrew Wiggins - Kansas, SF, 6-8 200 lbs.
  • Joel Embiid - Kansas, C, 7-0 250 lbs.
  • Jabari Parker - Duke, F, 6-8 235 lbs.
  • Dario Saric Croatia/Cibona, F, 6-10 223 lbs.
  • Jusuf Nurkic - Bosnia & Herzegovina/Cedevita, C, 6-11 280 lbs.
  • Clint Capela - Switzerland/Chalon, PF, 6-11 222 lbs.
  • Kristaps Porzingis - Latvia/Sevilla, PF, 6-11 220 lbs.
  • Vasilije Micic - Serbia/Mega Vivura, PG, 6-4 185 lbs.

That's not the whole list of who pulled out of drills, but it's the top characters.

In addition, two players the Suns might be interested in drafting are injured: Forward Adreian Payne has mono, and forward Mitch McGary has a back injury that he's been nursing for a while now.

It is hot, and in the summer, the Suns look to sizzle...

The Phoenix Suns rose to the mountain top and were ready to achieve historical, first time, greatness on the basketball court. As they dominated their way through the schedule, beating opponent by opponent until there was only one left, and a Championship was on the line.

Well, that was the 2013 NBA Summer League Championship and we are just around the corner from 2014 now as Las Vegas awaits.

This summer's event will again feature a single elimination tournament schedule that will crown the Samsung NBA Summer League Champion on Monday, July 21. Teams will compete in three preliminary round games from July 11-15 before being seeded in a tournament running through the Championship Game on July 21. Each team is guaranteed to play at least five games.

After last years run to the 2013 Championship Game loss to the Golden State Warriors the Suns are out for gold this time around behind the young core that is the future of the franchise. With four potential draft picks, rookies Alex Len and Archie Goodwin, and various other young talents this should be another exciting team to watch over the summer. Basketball (rarely) stops in Arizona with Suns running and gunning all Fall, Winter, Spring, and into the Summer.

Markieff Morris dominated the summer which led to his terrific third season in the running for the 6th Man of the Year Award.

Can the Suns continue on the hot streak they started last summer that led to one of the best overall seasons in franchise history? Does the summer league mean anything? Philosophers of our generation have been asking that question for years now...

The Summer League will tip-off July 11th and culminate with the Championship Game being played on July 21st after each team plays three preliminary round games with every team playing a minimum of five games along the way. The tournament is sponsored by Samsung, the official handset, tablet, and television provider of the NBA, WNBA, and NBA D-League.

NBA TV will televise Samsung NBA Summer League games from Las Vegas with a complete schedule of games and broadcast information to be released at a later date. Additionally, fans will once again be able to watch, via a subscription-based package, every Samsung NBA Summer League game live on and on the NBA Summer League app.

Clippers guard Jamal Crawford won the 2014 NBA Sixth Man of the Year award for the second time in his career and many, especially people in Phoenix and Chicago, thought the selection was a bit...

Welcome to the Madhouse! Bright Side of the Sun is an amazing and diverse community and it deserves a place where the tyranny of topicality does not rule. And that's what The Madhouse is.
