T.J. Warren said that he is starting to feel more comfortable out on the court.

"I’m feeling a lot more comfortable out there," Warren said. "I’m familiar with the NBA style more so basically [I’m] just trying to work on my game. [The game is] coming a little slower. [I] just got to be patient with certain type of stuff [and] just got to use my head and going with my first instinct but that will come with more development and more experience being out there." Warren is really starting to blossom into a solid NBA player and he could be in line for a breakout season now that Gerald Green and Marcus Morris are no longer in his way. Keep an eye on him during the preseason.

Flip Saunders said that there have been no conversations between the Wolves and free agent point guard Kendall Marshall.

The Wolves are pretty much set at point guard with Ricky Rubio, Zach LaVine and Tyus Jones all under contract, so it wouldn't make a lot of sense for them to go after Marshall. Currently recovering from a torn ACL that he suffered in January, Marhsall's rehab has reportedly been going well and he should be ready to go in time for NBA training camps. Unless he ends up in an ideal situation, Marshall isn't on the fantasy radar.

Jerel Mcneal is reportedly in advanced talks with Aris Thessaloniki of Greece.

Mcneal was recently waived by the Suns after posting averages of 2.8 points and 2.2 assists during the summer league, but it looks like his days in the NBA could be in jeopardy. We will let you know if the deal becomes official.

Coach Jeff Hornacek said Devin Booker was in the right defensive position "most of the time" at Summer League.

Hornacek said Booker can "obviously stroke it" with his perimeter jumper and called him "pretty solid all around." Booker was en fuego from deep in his last five games, making 12-of-21 in that span. He's still behind the likes of P.J. Tucker, T.J. Warren and Archie Goodwin to get minutes next to Brandon Knight and Eric Bledsoe on the outside.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len is looking forward to learning from Tyson Chandler this season.

"He’s one of the best defensive bigs in the league. The way he blocks shots, the way he communicates. I think I can learn just from watching, just from being around him, add it to my game. I think it’s going to be great," Len said in regards to Chandler. "He’s a great leader. We needed a veteran last year. Somebody in the locker room, on the court, somebody we can look up to. So, I think it’s great for the team." Len's upside will be capped due to the arrival of Chandler, and considering his injury history it will be tough to target him in standard leagues.

Free agent point guard Kendall Marshall (knee) is reportedly on the Timberwolves' radar.

Marshall is currently rehabbing from a torn ACL that he suffered in January, but the expectation is that he will be ready in time for NBA training camps. The Wolves are concerned about Marshall's knee, so a deal isn't imminent by any means. The Wolves' backcourt is pretty crowded at the moment, so Marshall wouldn't be a factor in fantasy leagues if he ended up in Minnesota.

Coach Jeff Hornacek and general manager Ryan McDonough have not talked with Markieff Morris since the trade of his twin brother, Marcus.

The trade wasn't a welcomed sight for either brother. In his press conference in Detroit, Marcus said, "Forget Phoenix." Just following the trade, Markieff tweeted, "Lol this a foul game here man!" Both Morrii had issues with Hornacek with Markieff being benched for a technical foul while Marcus was benched for shouting with the coach.

Mirza Teletovic said the Nets wanted him back, but he choose to sign with the Suns instead.

While Teletovic said the Nets wanted him to stay and the Kings offered him a two-year deal, he decided that Phoenix was the place he wanted to be. "I always loved Phoenix Suns, I loved Charles Barkley back then," Teletovic said. "I already have few friends there and I look forward to be there." The 29-year-old offers three-point help in deeper fantasy leagues, but he won't see enough minutes in Phoenix to warrant a spot on most fantasy rosters.

Devin Booker made 3-of-10 from the field for 10 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Spurs on Monday.

After missing his first eight shots from deep to start his Vegas run, Booker made 12-of-22 (54.5 percent) from beyond the arc since that rough start. He still has a lot of work to do on two-pointers and his defense is nowhere near where it needs to be, but the NBA is a shooter's league now. Booker could be a valuable piece to the Suns' rotation in the near future.
Jul 20 - 10:56 PM

Devin Booker went off for 31 points during Sunday's win over the Pelicans, adding five 3-pointers, nine rebounds, two assists and five turnovers through 34 minutes of action.

When Booker is hot, he's an exciting guy to watch, and he was effortlessly draining pull up 3-pointers in transition during Sunday's win. Booker doesn't have much competition for playing time in Phoenix, so if he's able to establish himself in the rotation, he could at the very least emerge as a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.

Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len (rest) did not suit up for Sunday's Summer League game vs. the Pelicans.

The Suns don't want Len playing in back-to-back sets during Summer League, which is a smart move considering how he's struggled to stay healthy during his two years in the league. With Tyson Chandler in town, Len is going to have a tough time getting enough minutes to matter in standard leagues.
Jul 19 - 8:34 PM

T.J. Warren dominated during a 91-84 win over the Bulls on Saturday, scoring 31 points with six rebounds, one steal and one block in 34 minutes.

We saw him come on late last season and he was slightly below average in his mid-range game, which was expected to be his forte. Warren is elite in paint points for wings with wonderful percentages and he's beyond his years off the ball. With Marcus Morris and Gerald Green out of the picture, Warren could be in for some solid fantasy production, especially in points leagues and in DFS.
Jul 18 - 9:59 PM

The Suns announced the signing of Brandon Knight on Friday.

"We are delighted to have reached a multi-year agreement with Brandon," said President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby. "He will be an integral member of our team on the court and will enhance our culture with his leadership and professionalism." Knight made just 11 appearances with the Suns last season after he was acquired in a trade with Milwaukee, as a nagging ankle injury slowed him down late in the season. Knight had a breakout season with the Bucks, but his numbers could take a small hit since he will be playing alongside Eric Bledsoe.

Suns waive G Jerel McNeal.

With the Suns signing Ronnie Price, McNeal was very unlikely to be kept no matter how great he was at Summer League. In four Las Vegas games, he averaged 2.8 points, 2.2 dimes and 0.5 steals.

T.J. Warren was the best player on the floor during Thursday's blowout victory over the Bucks, scoring a game-high 23 points to go with four assists, three rebounds, three blocks and two turnovers through 33 minutes of action.

Not only has Warren been lights out offensively, but he's also been piling up the defensive stats at Summer League, averaging 20.3 points, 1.7 steals and 1.3 blocks per game on 56.9 percent shooting from the field. Warren is primed for a much larger role with the Suns next season with Gerald Green and Marcus Morris no longer on the roster, and he looks like he's trying to prove something at Summer League. He'll have the opportunity to overtake P.J. Tucker for the starting small forward spot in Phoenix, but even as a sixth man, he could turn out some value in standard leagues.
