When Suns power forward Markieff Morris walked to the van after the Suns’ intra-squad scrimmage Saturday, he threw the his Disney Princess backpack over his shoulder and marched out of UC San Diego’s RIMAC Arena with chest held high.

Although Morris is entering his second year, he’s technically still a rookie to the other Suns players and staff members because his first year took place during the 2011-12 shortened 66-game season. So the Suns’ vets have the pleasure of torturing Morris for just a little longer.

The conclusion of the 2012-13 Suns’ training camp was capped off with the traditional intra-squad scrimmage Saturday.

Taking place at University of California San Diego’s RIMAC Arena, a Jared Dudley-led Team Black held off a Markieff Morris-led Team White by clinging to an 83-81 victory. According to unofficial stat totals, Dudley poured in a game-high 33 points, while fellow Team Black teammates Luis Scola (13 points), Michael Beasley (12) and Marcin Gortat (11) rounded out the rest of his squad in double figures.

During this week’s Suns training camp in San Diego, no player has been more magnetic to watch then Wesley Johnson.

The 6-7 swingman, who arrived in Phoenix via trade this offseason, has been captivating with his athletic swoops to the basket, impressive dunks and lights-out accuracy from long range. When Minnesota selected Johnson with the fourth overall pick in the 2010, this was the player they were hoping to see on a regular basis.
