Indeed, the Suns already have a couple mid-range professionals in Devin Booker and Chris Paul, but the latter on Monday said, after watching the video of Murray, that he was open to the Arizona Cardinals quarterback joining the Suns — only if Paul can get in some quarterback reps with the Valley’s NFL franchise. I did see it. They gone let him come play here, they let me go play quarterback,” Paul said during shootaround on Monday before Phoenix hosts the Houston Rockets.
After knocking off the Utah in overtime on Wednesday, the Phoenix Suns leapfrogged the Jazz in NBA.com’s latest power rankings. Phoenix played four games last week, beating the Jazz, Houston Rockets and Washington Wizards, but losing to the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday. The loss to the Clippers snapped a seven-game win streak for Phoenix as they climbed to second place in the Western Conference standings.
Najafi, vice chairman of the Phoenix Suns and a member of the NBA’s Board of Governors, is also getting involved with the NBA Foundation. The charitable foundation launched in August, a couple of weeks before NBA players halted the league’s playoffs with a three-day boycott to call attention to the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Wisconsin. The 30 NBA teams are collectively contributing $30 million annually for 10 years to establish the foundation.
