The Suns began a busy week of predraft workouts Tuesday at US Airways Center with a group of players who probably aren't going to hear their names called during the first round of the June 26 draft. The Suns have three picks in the first round, at 14, 18 and 27. And they also have a second-round pick, which is the 50th overall selection. Michigan State point guard Keith Appling is probably the most recognizable name among the players who worked out Tuesday, and center Artem Klimenko might be the most intriguing player of the six.
