That relationship is no less important in NBA 2K15's MyCareer mode. A veteran teammate takes on the mentor role with your digital self and serves as a sounding board, self-esteem builder, and occasionally as a reality check. That mentor -- if you're playing for the Suns, anyway -- is Markieff Morris. Originally, Morris revealed, that role was reserved for eight-year veteran Channing Frye. Once he signed with Orlando in the offseason, however, 2K Sports turned to the now longest-tenured Phoenix Sun for the job. "It was a lot of fun," Morris said. "It took about four hours. I sat in front of my TV, and the set up headphones and put all these cameras in front of me. I just talked and gave them facial expressions and they recorded everything." NBA.com

The Rockets are widely expected to take a step back this season, thanks to all the depth they squandered on the Bosh dice roll, but they expect to have significant salary-cap room next summer -- when they can chase point guards as accomplished as Goran Dragic and Rajon Rondo if they choose -- as well as in the summer of 2016. Which is when, sources say, they'd like to give Harden an opportunity to serve as Houston's lead recruiter in the pursuit of a free agent named Kevin Wayne Durant. ESPN.com

The sides went months without speaking. It got ugly. A Phoenix sports-talk-show host wrote an "open letter" to Bledsoe, calling Paul "a joke" and urging Bledsoe to fire him. The pressure was squarely on Paul to produce, given his "unreasonable" demands. That's not the way Paul saw it. "Pressure is a terminology that doesn't align with my life," Paul said. "Where I come from, the pressures are totally different. But I did think it was an important summer. I'd be lying if I said I didn't. It was important for me from a personal standpoint and a company standpoint." Cleveland Plain Dealer

Marcus received $20 million over four years. The contract extensions start next year. Markieff and Marcus will play this season under their rookie contracts — $3.15 million and $3.11 million, respectively. That part really did not matter to them. It all goes to the same household — and even the same bank account for how they co-exist at work and home. "It didn't matter if it was me getting $5 million and Mook (Marcus) getting $8 million," Markieff said. "We told them it didn't matter. If they just put $13 (million) a year for the Morris twins, that would've been great. They wouldn't even have to say our names. "We're $52 million players." Arizona Republic

Marcus said Markieff's cut should have been higher. He also said they were not willing to wind up with different teams in free agency next year. "This deal doesn't show how good of a player I am," Marcus said. "This deal is about our financial stability for our family. I'm worth $52 million. They say I'm four-year, $20 million but, at the end of the day, $13 million is coming in our household every year. I'm worth $52 million and Keef's worth $52 million." Arizona Republic
