Dragan Bender, Marquese Chriss and Tyler Ulis were drafted last Thursday. Bender and Chriss were in New York for the draft-night proceedings, while Ulis celebrated with family and friends in Chicago.

The next morning, they flew to Phoenix to meet local media and participate in their first photo shoot in a Suns jersey.

Now the trio finds itself with new teammates in California, where the squad is working out and bonding in an effort to build some early chemistry for next season. Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight, Devin Booker and others are all part of the voluntary trip to the West Coast, which has included cycling, yoga and paintball.

Here's a look at some of the scenes from the team's summer fun:

Teamwork makes the dreamwork. #dntbescared
