I know what you're thinking. Actually I don't, but if I ever become telepathic I'll give you a heads up.

Back to what I was alluding to... What the hell is Sergio Rodriguez doing gracing the cover of the podcast episode?

Well....

Rodriguez is the last player the Suns selected with the #27 pick (2006 draft). 27. Hopefully the Suns fare better when they draft #30 (at least likely) next week. Sergio was sold to the Portland Trail Blazers on draft day (Remember the good old days when the Suns were firesaling all their draft picks? Good times.) and left the NBA after the 2009-10 season for Spainier pastures.

I want to thank Kris Habbas for letting me back on the show this week after my vacation. I always have a level of trepidation when I step away from something I'm embarrassingly underqualified to do. The worry -- that somebody will step in and reveal my gross incompetence. Bad thing for you... you're stuck tolerating me for at least one more week. :)

I also want to thank Paul "PLR" Richardson from the Sports Kave for covering my ass filling in during my absence.

Phoenix Suns Podcast Episode 27

Markieff_summer_league

Today, the NBA announced the schedule for the 2013 Summer League in Las Vegas, Nevada. 22 teams will be participating over the 11 day session (July 12-22), including your Phoenix Suns.

This year's Summer League will be debuting a tournament style schedule to crown the first ever NBA Summer League Champion. The schedule will include each team playing three preliminary games from July 12-16, after which they will be seeded accordingly in a tournament that will feature the last two teams standing in a championship game on July 22. Each team will play at least five games, with the additional games dependent on its success in the tournament.

The Suns will make their Summer League debut on July 13 against the Portland Trail Blazers. This game will also mark the debut of new Suns Head Coach Jeff Hornacek, who has revealed that he will be leading the Suns' Summer League sqaud. This makes sense for the rookie Head Coach, as five current Suns - Diante Garrett, Kendall Marshall, PJ Tucker, and Marcus and Markieff Morris - will be playing in Summer League, as well as all the rookies the Suns will draft in a little over a week. With what could be most of the Suns' 2013-2014 roster competing in the Summer League, Coach Hornacek will get an early start in trying to handle this Suns roster.

Most of the games will be televised on NBA TV, (the complete broadcast schedule will be released at a later time). Check out the complete schedule of matchups here.

For Suns fans aching to see some on-court action, the Summer League will offer a great precursor to the upcoming season. Here's wishing Coach Hornacek and the Suns Summer League roster the best of luck in their efforts.

Mock drafts are always fun. They're even more fun when YOU get to choose what the teams do. We've been getting a lot of response to the SBNation Blogger Mock Draft, with you guys having a lot to say about the draft choices Dave (and the rest of the Bright Side Front Office) has been making. Well, here's your chance to run things your own way.

Taking a page from Fear the Sword (check out their Community Mock Draft sign-up here), we have decided to give BSotS users a chance to participate in an interactive mock draft. In the comments section of this post, sign up for one of the 30 teams. The teams will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, so whoever requests a team first will get assigned that particular team. I will be the Suns so pick anyone but them, please. Hehe sorry.

The actual draft will happen live on Monday, June 24th at 10 pm EST/7 pm PT. We will do the draft on a live thread, which I will be updating as people make their respective teams' picks. Here are some rules:
  1. We are only drafting the first round.
  2. On draft day, you will have 5 minutes to make your pick once your team is up (like the real draft). If you fail to make your pick within those 5 minutes, I (or another moderator) will make your pick for you.
  3. To make your official pick, either post a comment (on the mock draft thread, not this one) with your pick in the subject line or email me a list of your top picks you think might be available at your spot ahead of time.
  4. TRADES ARE ALLOWED. However, I need to make sure they're valid so when you and another user agree to a trade, one of you needs to email me ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) so I can approve them. For the sake of this draft, all trades must include at least 2013 one first round pick in the transaction.
  5. If you can't be here on Monday night but still want to participate, you will need to email me your pick ahead of time. Please email me a few options of players you think will be available when you're picking, ranked in your order of preference.
PLEASE TRY TO KEEP THE PICKS/TRADES RELATIVELY REASONABLE. Remember, you're acting as the GM of the team you pick so your moves need to keep your team's best interests in mind, not the Suns'.

Pick your team in the comments section below (once again - first-come, first-served). You can/should also use comments to discuss trades with other users (you may also choose to provide your email address so others can contact you about possible trades). Feel free to ask any questions about something I may have forgotten to mention.
