The biggest two story lines of the past few weeks for the Phoenix Suns have been Eric Bledsoe‘s ongoing free agency saga and P.J. Tucker‘s super extreme DUI from back in May. But now that Tucker’s punishment has been handed down and it’s looking more and more like Bledsoe will be back next season – either by accepting the Suns’ four-year, $48 million offer or taking their $3.7 million qualifying offer – there’s not much to talk about.
Since we’re in the driest months of the NBA calendar, it’s never too early to look ahead to the upcoming 2014-15 season. Despite Bledsoe missing nearly half the season last year, Phoenix fell just one game short of the playoffs with 48 wins in the brutal Western Conference. And thanks to a couple of new faces from the draft and free agency, the Suns expect to carry the momentum of their surprising 2013-14 campaign to the postseason next year.
