Suns Introduce Rookie Trio

Less than 24 hours after each became members of the Phoenix Suns, rookies Dragan Bender, Marquese Chriss and Tyler Ulis were introduced to the media for the first time Friday afternoon.

Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough and head coach Earl Watson are hopeful the trio will infuse life into the 59-loss club and serve, along with young guards Devin Booker and Eric Bledsoe, as the foundation for a team which hasn’t made the playoffs since 2010.

A Valley native, Eric has had a passion for the Arizona sports scene since an early age. He has covered some of the biggest events including Super Bowls, national championships and the NBA and MLB playoffs in his near 20 years in local media.
