The Phoenix Suns are said to be in the hunt for four-time MVP and free-agent forward LeBron James.

The Phoenix Suns are waiting for LeBron James' decision.

On July 7, AZ Central Sports' Paul Coro discussed the possibility of James, a four-time MVP and two-time NBA champion, landing in Phoenix: 

"With free agents able to start signing Thursday, the Suns and the rest of the NBA would seem to be in a holding pattern for the free-agency decisions of LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony.

"Suns Managing Partner Robert Sarver, President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby and GM Ryan McDonough were able to talk to James' agent, Rich Paul, on Wednesday in Cleveland, but they also are tied to Paul because h represents Eric Bledsoe, the Suns' restricted free agent that they want to sign before he gets another team's offer sheet (ESPN reported Milwaukee is interested). The Suns have the right to match any Bledsoe offer sheet.

"ESPN reported that Houston, Dallas, Cleveland and the Los Angeles Lakers also had James-related meetings last week with Paul, who is handling the initial phase of inquiries. James is planning to be at Sunday's World Cup final in Brazil.

"Sarver told azcentral sports last week that the Suns have a 'favorable opportunity' because of their roster, which could keep Bledsoe, Goran Dragic and other core players while using cap space and some maneuvering to bring in James and a second maximum-level contract player."

In another development, David Stockton -- son of former Utah Jazz guard John (former teammate of Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek) -- secured a Summer League roster spot with Phoenix, per the team's official website: 

"Reminiscing, however, gave way to a business-like version of the game the two shared as family friends in the 1990s. Stockton's chances at getting drafted seemed unlikely, but he knew a good workout could earn him other avenues that lead to the same destination of professional basketball.

"It opened up in the form of a Summer League invite from the Suns, extended after what Phoenix's staff saw on tape from Stockton's days at Gonzaga as well as in his pre-draft run in the Valley.

"'His passing ability really stood out today,' said Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough. 'You can tell he's grown up around the game. He has a great feel for the game. Obviously he's a little limited physically. He's small and light, but I think he makes up for that with intelligence and smarts and toughness and passing ability.'

"Those skills were enough to make room for Stockton in the backcourt, where he'll compete for time behind fellow point guards Tyler Ennis (drafted 18th overall) and Seth Curry.

"He'll need to prove his size (5-11, 160 pounds) won't be a deterrent against NBA-sized point guards. He'll also need to show the shooting stroke he exhibited in his sophomore year (39.2 percent from three) before falling off the following two seasons (though he did shoot 3.5 percent better overall).

"That's also the universal challenge of tailoring skills to a specific style. Phoenix is universally-acclaimed as a player-friendly team to play for. That doesn't mean everyone can, though Stockton thinks he fits the mold.

 

"'I like to push (the tempo),' he said. 'I like to run, play fast, play defense and make plays. I think it would carry over well.'

"He will need to prove it. Providing himself, however, is nothing new to Stockton.

"'I think I had to prove myself every day I step out onto the court,' he said."
