Arash Markazi: Barnes said he was talking to 13-year old boy and his dad and a couple of hecklers but it didn't get heated until Sarver got involved. Barnes on Sarver: "We don’t like each other. He didn’t like me when I was there and I didn’t like him when I was there so it is what it is. If you’re going to say something like that to me, expect me to respond but don’t go run and tell when I do go say something. You can ask him what he said. He said enough to make me respond. We don’t like each other. I’m going to get a summer job at my kid’s school working as a yard dude. When you pay the money to get that close to us who doesn't want to say that I talked to Matt or I talked to Chris during the game. Twitter @ArashMarkazi

The biggest headline for the Suns over the last few days has been Hornacek’s controversial rule for technical fouls that states simply, “If you get a T for arguing with an official, you’re benched for the rest of the game.” What seemed like an idle threat at first quickly became reality when Goran Dragic was benched against the Houston Rockets after picking up a technical, and then again when Morris picked up one against the Clippers. Valley of the Suns

Hornacek said he once again addressed the issue with his team, mentioning some slight changes to a rule many criticized as being too harsh for a playoff-hopeful squad. “We talked about it,” he said. “We’ve tried both ways and we’re just going to try to do a better job as a team, as teammates, to corral each other when they start to argue. The guys came up with that. “They have been better, it hasn’t been — you know both Goran and Keef’s technical, it wasn’t constant yelling, it was just a couple of times. So I told them, ‘Hey, if you guys do that, and kind of help each other out there on the court, we’ll kind of look at it and it might be my discretion whether we do it for the rest of the game so we don’t have that necessarily hard rule.’ But I may still sit them for the end of the game if I feel like it and they know that.” Valley of the Suns

Asked if the Rockets would be at a disadvantage because they could not reach agreement on a deal in 2012, Dragic said, “Oh, no. No. Nothing like that. “Every team in the NBA is an option to me, because it is a privilege to play for any team in the NBA. When the time comes I’m going to sit down with my family and my agent and try to make the best decision for myself.” Houston Chronicle

“Archie doesn’t want out of Phoenix,” Goodwin’s agent, Charles Briscoe, told RealGM on Wednesday. “His words have been twisted in a recent article. We’re willing to wait for Archie’s opportunity. Any player in the NBA wants to play immediately, but we understand that Phoenix is in a playoff push. If we have to wait for next year, we’re OK with that. We know he will get his opportunity, and he’ll be ready.” RealGM

Well, the former L.A. Cleveland High and USC product grew up idolizing the Lakers and remembers how customary it became for them to host championship parades. But the man who playfully labeled himself this season as the NBA’s best all-time shooter also argued he will play a significant role this offseason in helping the Lakers attract marquee free agents. “I told Goran Dragic on the court, ‘You might be my teammate next year.’” Young told the L.A. News Group shortly after the Lakers’ loss on Monday to the Phoenix Suns. “I’ll talk to Marc (Gasol.) Me and him are cool. Kevin Love, I’ll talk to him.” Los Angeles Daily News

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.
