The Suns have been notable in recent years for the way their training staff has perpetuated the careers of Steve Nash and Grant Hill. They may not have as many aging bodies to work with next season, though, as several other teams are chasing Nash, and Hill is drawing plenty of interest as well. When Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors previewed Phoenix's offseason in May, he said that if Nash leaves, the Suns might be best served by saving their ample cap space for the future and focusing on building through the draft for now. Still, the Suns appear to have significant free agent targets, including Eric Gordon and Goran Dragic, and there's more news on them tonight.
- The Suns are considering making a maximum four-year, $58MM offer to Gordon, Chris Broussard of ESPN.com tweets.
- Restricted free agent Eric Gordon is having dinner with Suns executives tonight and will have a formal meeting with the team tomorrow, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic (Twitter link). Gordon has also met with the Pacers and Rockets, though the Hornets are reportedly likely to match any offer he receives.
- Goran Dragic will also be in Phoenix tomorrow, Coro tweets. The Rockets are the favorites to re-sign him, as Coro notes, and Dragic is reportedly seeking $10MM a year.
- As for Nash, Coro made note of a rumored two-year, $12MM offer from the Suns, but Chris Broussard of ESPN.com hears the Suns have yet to make an offer (Twitter link). The Raptors reportedly offered Nash three years and $36MM.
