Morning Sunshine: Phoenix Suns News (March 6)

This is our daily feature here at SunNGun where we scavenge the internet for recent stories related to the Phoenix Suns organization and relay them to you, so we are the one-stop-shopping for all things Phoenix Suns. We’ll have it for you everyday, hopefully in the morning. The links to these full articles are in the title, take a look at the entire stories. The writers at all the other blogs are good and have some interesting information and perspective, but come back here for our take and full coverage of the team.

“The Phoenix Suns have been weathering the storm as of late as they try and stay in the picture for the 2014 NBA Playoffs. The Suns are in a heated race at the bottom of the Western Conference playoff seeding, currently sitting at the seven seed with the Memphis Grizzlies sitting at the ninth seed trailing Phoenix by a single game.”
“For the first time in many years, the Phoenix Suns have a promising core of multiple young prospects…In the 2013 draft, the Suns selected Maryland center Alex Len fifth as well as Kentucky guard Archie Goodwin 29th. Both are young, and for now, relatively raw and undeveloped. But both rookies also represent the future of the franchise.”

“Suns rookie Alex Len is the only current Ukrainian on an NBA roster. Ankle injuries combined with surprisingly good play from the Suns existing front line (Channing Frye, Miles Plumlee, the Morris twins) have kept him on the bench much of the season. However Thursday night he is going to get the start against the Thunder in an important game for the Suns as they fight to get one of the final playoff spots in the West. But that is far from the most important thing on Len’s mind lately.”
