Markieff Morris tweeted on Thursday night that his "future will not be in Phoenix."

He finished the tweet with "#thatisall #backtothegrind #FOE." Morris' "family over everything" mentality has been a massive headache for the Suns, but so far they will not acquiesce to Morris' trade demands. In fact, the Suns' Twitter account wished Markieff a happy birthday on Wednesday. A trade would likely hurt Markieff's fantasy value and one would think they'd get a power forward back in the deal.

Terrico White is hoping to hook on with the Phoenix Suns.

White will be in training camp with the Suns after playing overseas and is hoping to make the team's final roster. "I’m very motivated," White said. "Everyone counted me out. I heard things like, ‘He’s failed throughout his whole career.’ With this opportunity, this is my chance to prove I belong in the NBA and show everyone that I’m a way better man and a way better player now than I was at 20 years old." Even if White is able to play his way on to the Suns final roster, he won't provide any value in standard fantasy leagues.

Henry Sims is eager to prove his worth at the Suns' training camp, and he hopes to secure a roster spot as the team's third-string center.

"This is an opportunity for me to show what I can do for a team that can make the playoffs," Sims said. "I want to show the NBA I can do what I was doing there [in Philadelphia] on any team and do more. It gives me an extra boost of energy to be here for a potential playoff team." What Sims did in Philly was compile averages of 8.0 points and 4.9 rebounds per game on 47.4 percent shooting from the field. He'd pick up plenty of DNP-CDs as a member of the Suns, so even if he makes the team, there will be no reason to touch him on draft day in any league.

Kendall Marshall has been at the 76ers' practice facility the past few days and at this point it seems likely that he will get a training camp invite with the club, according to sources of Jake Fischer.

If Marshall does receive a camp invite from the Sixers, he would be the team's 20th and final player at training camp. Marshall is more than capable of being the starting point guard on a bad team, as he averaged 8.0 points, 8.8 assists and 1.3 three-pointers per game through 54 games with the Lakers during the 2013-14 season. Assuming he makes the squad in Philadelphia, he'd be well worth a late-round selection on draft day for owners looking to shore up the assist category.

Eric Bledsoe stated during a recent interview that he believes the Suns can compete for a playoff spot this upcoming season.

"We’re definitely trying to make a run at a playoff spot. We’re not trying to get the last spot, either," said Bledsoe. "We’re trying to get a high spot. We’re definitely looking forward to it." It's always difficult to compete for a playoff spot in the Western Conference, but Bledsoe appears to be confident in his team. He'll look to build off last season's averages of 17.0 points, 6.1 assists, 5.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.1 three-pointers and 3.4 turnovers through 81 games last season. Bledsoe will make for a solid early-middle round selection on draft day.

The 76ers have reportedly expressed interest in free agent G Kendall Marshall.

While Marshall is far from a superstar, he may actually be able to carve out a role on the Sixers. The dominos would have to fall perfectly into place for Marshall to provide any fantasy value, but he did average 8.8 assists per game with the Lakers in 2013-14 and is worth monitoring if he lands in Philadelphia.

The Suns have no plans to fulfill Markieff Morris' trade request.

This has grown to be ridiculous. The situation calls for Markieff to get a reality check and realize that he can't play with his brother forever on a professional stage. Whether or not Morris is happy is a moot point. Phoenix expects him to report by the end of September for training camp, and while he would hold intriguing fantasy value in a starting role, a malcontent Markieff may be a recipe for disaster.

Mirza Teletovic will not play for Bosnia in the European Championship.

If for some reason the Suns do not get a power forward back in a Markieff Morris deal, Teletovic and Jon "Johnny Basketball" Leuer would be the only true power forwards on the roster. You have to be in a very deep league to give Mirza a look.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len will not play for the Ukraine in the European Championship.

He's not hurt and this is a precaution. Len has been struggling with injuries -- his ankles in particular -- and the Suns have to be happy with this move. For now, his fantasy value is tough to project with Markieff Morris on the block, but the Suns would likely get a power forward back in a deal. Len's upside is intriguing enough to make him your last pick.
Aug 29 - 2:14 PM

Suns sign G Deonte Burton.

Burton will join the Suns on a non-guaranteed contract and hope to earn a roster spot in training camp. Even if the 24-year-old is able to play his way onto the Suns roster, he won't provide any fantasy value.
Aug 27 - 9:39 AM

The Suns have extended a training camp invite to Cory Jefferson.

The Nets waived Jefferson back in July, so now he'll try and earn himself a roster spot with the Suns. Through 50 games with Brooklyn, Jefferson was only able to compile averages of 3.7 points and 2.9 rebounds per game, so even if he does make Phoenix's opening night roster, he won't have any fantasy value.
Aug 25 - 7:11 PM

The Suns have extended a training camp invite to Henry Sims.

The 76ers did not extend a qualifying offer to Sims this offseason, making him an unrestricted free agent, so now he will fight for a roster spot in Phoenix. He could help bolster the Suns' frontcourt, but with Tyson Chandler and Alex Len healthy, Sims won't have any fantasy value in Phoenix.
Aug 25 - 7:07 PM

The Suns have agreed to sign forward Kyle Casey to a training camp deal.

Casey played his college ball at Harvard and spent last season playing for Helios Suns Domzole in Slovenia where he averaged 12.4 points and 7.1 boards on 59 percent shooting from the field. His chances of making the final roster are slim and he will likely join the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA D-League, so he can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Aug 21 - 9:47 AM

Terrico White has reportedly reached an agreement to sign with the Suns.

White was drafted by the Pistons back in 2010, but he broke his foot during a preseason game which ended up costing him his entire rookie season, and he was later waived by Detroit. While the specifics of the deal have not yet been released, it's likely nothing more than a training camp invite, and he's a long shot to make the regular-season roster. Feel free to ignore White in all leagues on draft day.

The 2015 NBA draft class voted Devin Booker as the best shooter in their class.

Booker put his skills on display during Summer League, draining 12 of his 21 attempts from beyond the arc, to go with averages of 15.3 points and 4.9 rebounds per game on 40.2 percent shooting from the field. He'll need to beat out P.J. Tucker, T.J. Warren and Archie Goodwin for minutes in Phoenix's backcourt, but if he is able to establish himself as a regular part of the Suns' rotation, he could turn emerge as a 3-point specialist in deeper leagues.
