The Suns have signed Alec Peters to a two-way contract.

Phoenix selected Peters with the 54th overall pick in the 2017 draft. He averaged 23.0 points, 10.1 rebounds and 2.0 3-pointers last season at Valparaiso. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues, as he'll likely spend most of the 2017-18 campaign in the G-League.

The Suns have signed G Peter Jok to a partially guaranteed contract.

Jok went undrafted after averaging 19.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game last season for the Iowa Hawkeyes. It is unlikely he makes the Suns final 15-man roster.

Marquese Chriss worked out with Dejounte Murray over the weekend.

It's an easy connection for the University of Washington teammates, but it's worth a mention that Chriss is back on the court after his ankle injury at summer league. He was given plenty of leash late in the season with 26.9 minutes per game after the break, and he also improved his 3-point shooting to 36.0 percent in that span. Chriss has an opportunity to score in the teens and flirt with 2.0 blocks per game, which makes him a high-upside target after the early rounds.

Alex Len - F/C - Suns

Alex Len has withdrawn from the Ukraine national team and will not participate in EuroBasket.

Len is still a restricted free agent. As a result, he was likely advised to skip EuroBasket in order to avoid risking an injury before inking a new contract. Len is only 24 and possesses intriguing upside, but he's coming off a disappointing season. The Suns sat most of their veterans over the second half of last year and Len saw increased minutes but was not overly impressive. He averaged 9.3 points and 7.8 rebounds in 23.0 minutes over 34 starts.

Brandon Knight underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee on Friday and will miss the entire 2017-18 season.

2017 has not been kind to Brandon Knight. He was essentially benched for entire second half of last season, not appearing in a single game for the Suns after the All-Star break. Then Knight tore his ACL while playing in a pro-am game in late July. He still has three years and $44 million left on his contract. Phoenix has to hope he can enter the 2018-19 season fully healthy and bounce back to something resembling the player he was when the Suns acquired him.

The Suns announced on Friday that Davon Reed underwent a meniscus repair of his left knee that will sideline him for approximately four to six months.

Phoenix selected Reed with the 32nd overall pick in the 2017 draft out of the University of Miami. He played relatively well for the Suns summer league squad in Las Vegas, averaging 14.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.2 steals over six games. However, Reed wasn't on the fantasy radar even before this injury and should be ignored in all fantasy formats this season.

Josh Jackson doesn't think he'll be included in a trade package that would net the Suns Kyrie Irving.

"I think if that was going to happen, it would’ve happened by now," Jackson said when asked about the rumors that have involved him and Irving. "A little talking to my agent, not really checking social media because that’s not the way to go. People just say whatever." There's still plenty of time for such a deal to go through, and it's worth noting that Jackson hasn't been told by the Suns' brass that he definitely won't be traded, but there have been reports indicating it'll be very tough for Cleveland to pry Jackson away from Phoenix this summer.

The Suns could offer Dragan Bender in a trade for Kyrie Irving, according to Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN in Minnesota.

Phoenix radio host John Gambadoro also confirmed this report, saying the offer is "not new" and that the Suns are willing to deal Bender, Eric Bledsoe and the Miami pick for Irving. Bender is more of a project and his ankle injury last season limited him to just 13.3 minutes per game over his 43 outings. While he did have a good summer league, Bender is behind fellow top-10 2016 pick Marquese Chriss right now.

The Suns would be willing to trade Eric Bledsoe to Cleveland as part of a deal for Kyrie Irving, according to Terry Pluto of Cleveland.com.

The report also claims that Phoenix would include Bledsoe in a package even if Irving wasn't willing to commit to the Suns long term. However, Phoenix does not want to part with rookie Josh Jackson. The Cavs obviously have a great interest in Devin Booker as well, but Booker is "as close to untouchable as anyone on the Suns' roster." Bledsoe is good friends with LeBron James, as the two share the same agent and often work out together, so the Suns will continue to be one of the teams mentioned as a possible trade partner.

Devin Booker has been informed by the Suns that he won't be part of any potential deal for Kyrie Irving according to Joe Vardon of the Cleveland Plain Dealer

The 20-year-old star is likely the only untouchable on the roster other than Josh Jackson -- the Suns told Jackson that he won't be moved either. Booker's usage rate would take a hit if the Suns brought in Irving, but his efficiency would likely improve after shooting 42.3 percent from the field in both his rookie and sophomore seasons.

Dragan Bender will play for Croatia at Eurobasket 2017.

He was terrific in Las Vegas and showed plenty of position flexibility. Bender's ankle injury cut his rookie season short, but he should be a key player to watch for a stacked Croatian team. He should be in the rotation for the Suns and is a late-round sleeper in deep leagues.

While being interviewed on the Arizona Diamondbacks broadcast on Wednesday, Devin Booker said his primary goal for the 2016-17 season is to win.

"That goal stays consistent, so turning around this franchise and getting it back to where it was... that's my ultimate goal," Booker said. Sadly, no muscle watch or adding new stuff to his game with this quote. Perhaps the interesting part of this quote is how the Suns just openly said they're going to take a patient approach to how they turn their team around. Whatever the case, Booker is untouchable in trades and should be extremely busy as the primary scorer.

Suns sign C Alan Williams.

It's official on what is reportedly a three-year, $17 million deal, and Big Sauce said he waited to sign the deal to help the Suns have more flexibility in free agency. He's one of the most liked players on the team for his bench celebrations and charisma, and he's also a Phoenix guy with his mom being Chief of Police for the city. Williams is still going to have to play behind Tyson Chandler, but the Suns will definitely be resting Chandler a ton -- Marquese Chriss will play some five, too. Williams getting his deal likely means Alex Len is headed elsewhere/

LeBron James will be working out with Derrick Rose, Eric Bledsoe and others in Las Vegas, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

This will probably help fuel the Bledsoe for Kyrie Irving trade rumors. Although, Bledsoe and LeBron have been close for years, they have worked out together before, and they both have Rich Paul as their agent. In other words, this is not a surprise and there's a very good chance this has nothing to do with the trade rumor. Bledsoe has said he'd like to win now and the Suns would probably like to move him to focus on their player development, so expect plenty of rumors to follow.

John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 is reporting that Josh Jackson won't be included in any potential deal for Kyrie Irving.

There have already been reports linking Irving to the Suns in exchange for Bledsoe and a collection of picks and/or prospects, but ESPN's Ramona Shelburne said the Suns have reassured Jackson of their intention to keep him. The two-way forward showcased his upside at the Summer League with 17.4 points, 9.2 boards, 1.6 dimes, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks per game and is a dark horse to lead all rookies in minutes because of his ability to play multiple positions.
