Calderon still has two years left on his pact after this season. There’s speculation the Suns would trade Dragic if they had the slightest hint he was eyeing a departure. Any play on Dragic could mean Calderon gets shipped out. Dragic is a younger, sleeker model. Meanwhile, Calderon has emerged as a leader in the locker room even as the Knicks’ season spirals out of control at 5-22. New York Post

Sarver also shared that sentiment with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver recently. "I had this conversation with him just the other day," Silver said Wednesday night in Charlotte before the Suns-Hornets game. "I don't think it's imminent but, yes, over time, there's no question that what was once one of the very best buildings in the league is becoming older. "They invested in a renovation there, the prior ownership did. Robert, as he looks out into the next decade, realizes that at some point he's going to need a new building. It's early stages but it's something that the league office can be helpful with. At least we have the experience of many more markets." Arizona Republic

With news of Thomas firing his agent, Andy Miller, two weeks ago and with him becoming trade-eligible this week, the dot-connectors went to work after Thomas' comment to cbssports.com last month that the Suns situation "was not what I expected." Miller negotiated Thomas' four-year, $27 million contract with Phoenix in July. "It's unrelated to the Suns," Thomas said of firing his agent. "I lost trust in the guy. That's all it is. Professional reasons. Personal reasons as well. People, I've seen, say I want to be traded and things like that. Nah, that happened two weeks ago." Arizona Republic

Asked if he was good with the current situation, Thomas said, "I'm not OK with losing, so I don't think anybody is OK with what is going on right now. We've got to figure it out." Asked if he was good with his individual situation, Thomas said, "My family loves it. So if they're happy, I'm happy. Like I said, we're losing now. And, no, I'm not OK with the situation right now because we are on a six-game losing streak. I'm not OK with it." Arizona Republic

Charles F. Gardner: Dragic (lower back strain) will be held out second straight night for Suns. Hornacek said, "There's no sense having him aggravate it." Twitter @cf_gardner

Phoenix has committed $70 million over five years to Bledsoe and $27 million over four years to Thomas. Bledsoe and Thomas will earn a combined $20.5 million next season. Dragic, an All-NBA third-team selection, could command $15 million a year or more on the open market in July. Would the Suns pay three point guards a combined $35 million, more than half of the projected cap? Would they let Dragic walk away for nothing? The answer to both questions is "probably not," which is why team executives across the league expect the Suns to trade one of the three. Some interviewed for this story said Thomas was the most likely candidate. "I do think that they're going to look at it, [but] only if it makes them better," said another Western Conference executive. Bleacher Report

The Houston thing has been well publicized, but you told Haberstroh that a few other teams — the Lakers, Suns, and Nuggets — expressed some interest in you during free agency. Did any of those situations interest you? Chris Bosh: It was just interesting to be wanted, after all that time of bashing, bashing, bashing. You kind of bask in it just a little bit. Like, Hey, I’m still valuable. I can still play this game. Grantland
