10:30 AM ET 11.25 | Robin Lopez did something at US Airways Center on Friday night that he did not get to do all of last season when he was with the Suns -- jump center. The Suns got the message this summer that Lopez wanted that chance to be a starter again when he declined what Lopez agreed was a fair offer to open free agency. Eventually, the Suns found a three-team deal that sent him to New Orleans and netted the Suns a first-round pick and Wes Johnson in return.
