Dudley did reiterate that the lack of communication between he and the coach isn't a bad thing. "You can't even say this is Lindsey's first year -- he's been on the job for what, two months," he asked. "He's got a lot of stuff thrown at him and and I'm one of things that 'hey, I'm not worried about Jared, Jared takes care of his business. Right now I'm worried about trying to change the culture to my style of coaching.'" Arizona's Sports Page

Suns forward Jared Dudley told Markieff on Wednesday that there was a rumor Marcus was being traded before Thursday’s 1p.m. league deadline. Markieff called Marcus, not knowing that the Suns were the possible destination. “I’m super excited,” Markieff said. “It can’t get no better for me. This is what I definitely wanted from the beginning, to be the same as college. I’m just excited to be able to play with him again. Honestly, all of this has been a dream to me. God is blessing it to be better and better for me and him.” Arizona Republic

Some of the more enlightened folks in this great land know that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. One such player is Jared Dudley. "Just because our team's bad," he said to BSotS' own Jim Coughenour and SB Nation's Kris Habbas on Friday's podcast. "I don't want to jump off. No." Listen to the whole, awesome podcast here. Really, it's worth your time. Bright Side of the Sun

He acknowledged that Suns players are definitely frustrated, but disavowed us of the notion that they all want out. "I think there's a lot of frustration, and there should be frustration built it too," he said. "I don't care what anyone tells you. If you're on a team that's losing the way we are, people should be frustrated, annoyed, but still upbeat at practice to want to get better. So there's a difference. You can't be frustrated that you don't want to be a part of it. "I am frustrated that we're losing. I'm tired of seeing the same mistakes. But I'm willing to put the work in to make those mistakes be very limited, if not at all." Bright Side of the Sun

Dudley opined that, if he is traded, he would not want to go to another bad team. But even rather than go to a good team, he'd simply rather stay right where he is. "It's easy to be in a good mood when you're winning," he said. "When you're losing, you need to stay in the gym, stay on guys. You never want to leave. I'll be the first one to tell you that if I had to leave, I don't want to go to a team that's bad. "Phoenix, city-wise, is one of the top 5 destinations to go to, so why not just stay here and just get better?" Bright Side of the Sun

Shumpert knows he has had a difficult week. He has been trying to find his rhythm on the court and his niche with the Knicks. And, on Saturday night he became the subject of a trade rumor. The Phoenix Suns were said to be interested in making a deal for Shumpert, a second-year guard, in exchange for Jared Dudley and a possible first-round pick before the Feb. 21 trade deadline. Shumpert, who returned to the court less than a month ago after knee surgery last April, met with Coach Mike Woodson on Saturday. “He said don’t worry about it,” Shumpert said. “Rumors are rumors. I don’t really care. I just have to play ball. I can’t control that anyway. It’s nothing to worry about. I just have to go out there and play.” New York Times
