The Phoenix Suns were honored last night at the Phoenix Business Journal’s “Heart of Business Awards” for the recent launch of “SunsCentral,” a unique education-based partnership between the Suns and Central High School (CHS).

The “SunsCentral” partnership is the result of a $500,000 grant, over two years, that Phoenix Suns Charities is donating to Central High School. The initiative aims to provide support services to struggling CHS students to help keep them in school.

When the Suns acquired Luis Scola in the amnesty auction this summer, local authorities in Arizona were definitely informed. That’s because Phoenix stole him.

A crafty forward out of Argentina, Scola’s contract was presumably amnestied by the Houston Rockets to make salary room for other free agent signings. In the process, the Suns were able to pick up one of the league’s most consistent power forwards at a significant discount.

When Suns head coach Alvin Gentry talks about forward Michael Beasley, the word versatility usually follows shortly after.

At 6-10, the former No. 2 overall selection in the 2008 NBA Draft can score both in the paint and on the perimeter.

Just two seasons ago, Beasley averaged over 19 points a game for Minnesota and will be asked to add some offensive punch to the lineup this season.
