''I have matured more,'' Gordon said. ''But I would say a lot of people doubted me because you know they thought I didn't want to be here. I'm here to do what's best for the team as always. It has been a different road, but the support system is a lot better. I just believe when you think about winning, people do things and think positive. I just tried to get healthy, do the things that I can do to help this team.'' New Orleans Times-Picayune

The priority with Granger, acquired by the Suns on Feb. 19 in the Goran Dragic trade, will be to use the Suns' heralded athletic training staff to help the 31-year-old regain some of the old form that made him an Indiana star before two knee surgeries. From there, Granger could play this season and next season, when he has a $2.1 million player option to return. He already was building a home in Paradise Valley for retirement but the plan would be to use the house as a player first. "I would love to play and suit up but I think overall, for me, as far as my long-term plan with my career is to get extremely healthy first," Granger said. "They told me what they did with Grant Hill when he came and hadn't played in two years. He probably played five or six years after that so that's my plan." Arizona Republic

Until the league March 1 playoff-eligible deadline, Granger explored options to join a contender with a Suns buyout but determined coming to Phoenix was his best option. He met with the Suns' athletic trainers for more than an hour Monday and was told "it can be fixed." Granger underwent left knee surgery in 2013, when he said he considered retirement but instead changed his exercises and diet regimen to return. He underwent another left knee surgery last summer. "I haven't returned to the level I was before but I don't think that's impossible to get back there," Granger said. "I'm only 31. There were times, even stretches when I was playing for Miami, I felt great, bouncy, my shot was going. And then the knee is always kind of just nagging at you. I'm thankful that I kept playing and I think I can play a lot longer." Arizona Republic

Bledsoe said he had no issue with the Dragic-Thomas combination. It seems that there was little dissension among the three players but there was unhappiness about the situation as a whole. “It was challenging for sure, but everybody had a great vibe about the situation going into the season,” Bledsoe said. “We knew it was going to be tough sharing the ball with one another but I thought we did a great job. We were above .500. It wasn’t like we were losing. “I’m really not going to get into all [of Dragic’s comments] but I loved playing with him, that’s for sure.” Boston Globe

Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough said Danny Granger will join the team in Phoenix after it comes home from this road trip, which ends Saturday at Cleveland. Granger will do so with a focus on working with the Suns athletic trainers to get healthy for next season, for which he has a $2.1 million player option. Arizona Republic

Several general managers and executives I’ve spoken with peg Knight’s value around a $12 million annual salary. With that in mind, a team hoping to land him in restricted free agency would likely have to offer a full maximum contract to have the best chance to realistically land him. However, it would be a hard sell for Phoenix to not match any offer for Knight after giving up valuable assets to land him at the trade deadline and dealing Dragic and Thomas as well separately.

Goran Dragic: My No. 1 wish was to go to Miami, who I found out later had tried to get me a couple of years ago when I was in Houston. Miami offered everything—a great market, great players, their championship mentality. They always want to do well, and I think that it was a good fit for me. I was pushing for this situation, but I still didn't know if the Suns were going to send me there. I was in a tough spot, but things worked out in the end. Bleacher Report

Goran Dragic: When I now look back on what I said about the Suns before the trade—"I don't trust them anymore...I don't feel comfortable with my situation"—I feel bad because it came out a little too harsh. I didn't mean it like that, but it happened in that moment, so I cannot go back and change it. I just said what I was thinking. I'm an honest guy, and I had never said something bad about that organization. They were always great to me—they were like family—so I didn't mean that. But at the same time, I thought that the situation was not good any more for me, so that's why it came out like that. Bleacher Report
