Three point guards on the floor at the same time might cause some to raise eyebrows. Last summer, the idea made Isaiah Thomas raise his hand and say "pick me." "That's what I signed here for, was to play with those other two guards and to cause havoc on both ends of the floor playing with Goran and Bledsoe," Thomas said on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. NBA.com

This is still a good team — a speed demon that feasts on corner 3s and plays close to league-average defense despite fouling a ton. They just don’t look to be good enough, and that’s fine, considering how young they really are. The Suns will be on the hunt for some help, but they should prioritize next season and beyond in talking deadline deals. Teams will call about all of their point guards, but the feeling around the league is that Phoenix would be most open to moving Thomas. Grantland

"We just play harder on the road," said Isaiah Thomas, who is the only player besides Green to prompt crowd noise with an encouraging gesture. "We're more together on the road." Arizona Republic

David Aldridge: With the way Goran and Eric played here last year, why did you think you'd find enough minutes in Phoenix? Isaiah Thomas: I really went home, talked to my family, prayed on it. I really tried to envision how it would really work, 'cause it didn't make sense. But when they put it on paper and they told me I was going to be a big part of what they do here, I believed them. I felt like they were genuine. And we've had ups and downs this season, but at the end of the day we're trying to do the best we can to make it work. And if it doesn't work, it doesn't work. We tried. But we're doing the best we can to make it work and we're doing the best we can for this team. NBA.com

David Aldridge: How many times have the three of you been on the floor at the same time? Isaiah Thomas: Last two games. Before that, it would be stretches where it would be two or three minutes here or there. But not as much as I envisioned. When I signed here I thought we'd be playing a lot together. Maybe that changes. The last two games, we're on a two-game winning streak (three after winning in Washington Sunday night), Coach has changed it up a little bit to where we're ending the game together, the last seven or eight minutes of the game, we're all playing together. Hopefully that happens a lot more, 'cause I do feel like we could use that to our advantage, and it could work. NBA.com

David Aldridge: What do you think about what's going on in Sac right now? Isaiah Thomas: I mean, it caught everybody by surprise. I'm real close with Mike Malone. We talk all the time, every few weeks. It's tough. It's a tough situation. I didn't think it was going to happen. You can ask all the players there, it probably caught them off guard. 'Cause everybody fell in love with Mike Malone. He really changed the culture over there, and from the start they were having over there, it looked like things were changing for the better. But, I mean, you know how the NBA is. It's a business, and it seemed like they were butting heads a little bit, and they made their decision. NBA.com
