Teammates Eric Bledsoe and Tyson Chandler addressed the summer of disgruntled Suns forward Markieff Morris.

Markieff Morris took every opportunity this summer to express that he had no desire to remain in Phoenix for the start of the 2015-16 NBA season. Monday at Phoenix Suns Media Day, teammates had the opportunity to address the issues that have plagued the Suns this offseason. Eric Bledsoe said the right things.

Eric Bledsoe on Markieff Morris: "I guess people got misled about him as a teammate ... He's a great teammate. He's like my brother."

Tyson Chandler's a vet. He also knows the right things to say.

Chandler on Markieff: "I think all this stuff will be behind him. This isn't the first time a player had miscommunication with management."
