07:12 AM ET 09.23 | If the Suns are going to come out from the bottom half of the Western Conference, they're going to need Goran Dragic and his new backcourt-mate Eric Bledsoe to help do it. [The Suns] cleaned house, cutting ties with the troubled Michael Beasley, saying goodbye to GM Lance Blanks and bringing in Ryan McDonough from the Celtics as a replacement. The Suns then installed former fan favorite Jeff Hornacek as head coach. ... Dragic said Hornacek promised to revive a familiar look in the desert to begin the process of turning the Suns around. "He told me he wants to bring back that old Phoenix Suns basketball, up-tempo game, try to create off the dribble and off fast breaks," Dragic told ESPN.com. "Probably a little like we play with Slovenia, putting pressure on the ball and trying and play as fast as possible."

First!

This must be some kind of joke. In order to run, you have to rebound and play defense. The Suns do neither.

They've literally had no plan for several years....bringing in old guys, rejects, horrible drafting.....I don't see how they did anything recently to lift them out of the gutter

I think the plan is for Jeff Hornacek to suit up!!!! Might not be a bad idea given the roster.

Getting a new owner might help. Robert Sarver ran the team into the ground by selling draft picks. Trading away players away foe nothing. And signing the wrong players to long contracts.

Once you're on the ground floor there's only one way to go. And that's up.
