Tobias Harris, eligible for contract extension, wants to stay with Magic

The Magic's cap sheet is so clean, they could sign Ben Gordon for $9 million, and anyone who criticized the offer - raises hand - had to admit the griping was likely only theoretical. Channing Frye is the only player the Magic are committed to paying more than a rookie-scale contract in 2015-16.

A bledsoe trade that might just work

As we all know Eric Bledsoe isn't negotiating with the Suns for a contract and stands firm on a max contract, so obviously we have started shopping a trade for him. The Oklahoma City Thunder just can't seem to win the important playoff games down the stretch, they lack depth and bench production, partially because either Westbrook or Durant always have the ball in their hands.

Will the Phoenix Suns' Frontcourt Keep Team from Taking Next Step in 2014-15?

However, those acquisitions, such as Isaiah Thomas, rookie Tyler Ennis and rookie T.J. Warren, failed to address the team's more pressing problems at the frontcourt positions. Eric Bledsoe must make a decision about his future within the next few weeks, and should he opt to stay in Phoenix, the Suns will certainly have one of the NBA 's greatest backcourts in Bledsoe, Thomas, Goran Dragic and Gerald Green.
