The Suns Team Shop will offer an exclusive Al McCoy t-shirt and mini basketball as the Items of the Game, and there will be an interactive photo booth located outside the Team Shop where fans can pose for photos in front of a green screen featuring iconic moments from Al McCoy’s legendary career. Fans are also encouraged to download the Suns Mobile App, powered by Verizon, and keep the app open when attending the game for the chance to win special Suns prizes and discounts at the Team Shop.

The team will showcase a number of special tributes and vignettes in-arena during the game to celebrate McCoy’s legacy and contributions to the Suns family throughout his 45-year tenure with the organization.
