PHOENIX (AP) - The Phoenix Suns struggled at the start of their rebuilding process, finishing with the second-worst record in team history.
Behind a new general manager and coach, they're taking another stab at rebuilding, this time centering it on a proven veteran and an up-and-coming point guard.
With the additions of two-time All-Star forward Caron Butler and third-year guard Eric Bledsoe, general manager Ryan McDonough and coach Jeff Hornacek believe they have the foundation in place to get the Suns back to winning again.
The Suns helped orchestrate the three-team trade that brought Butler and Bledsoe to the desert, sent Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick to the Clippers, and sent a pair of second-round draft picks to Milwaukee.
