News: Tucker was charged with 'extreme drunken driving' two months before he signed a three-year, $16.5 million contract - $12.7 million guaranteed - with the Suns.
Impact: Scottsdale police say Tucker had a blood alcohol level of .222 percent nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08 for operating a vehicle in Arizona. Tucker's Mercedes Benz was pulled over by a Scottsdale police officer on May 10. The police report says Tucker's speech was slurred and eyes were bloodshot, and he nearly fell over during the sobriety test.

News: Tucker was arrested back in May for a DUI that may ultimately cause him to be sidelined at the start of the 2014-15 season, the Arizona Republic reports.
Impact: While a possible suspension is looming for Tucker, it's not a foregone conclusion that he'll be reprimanded by the NBA. If he's ultimately forced to the sideline for the start of the upcoming season, his absence will likely allow rookie T.J. Warren and Gerald Green to see increased time on the court.

News: Phoenix waived Christmas on Thursday.
Impact: The former Temple player averaged 2.3 points, 1.2 rebounds and 6.4 minutes in 31 games last season as a rookie. He averaged 10.6 points and 5.6 rebounds in five summer league games this month in Las Vegas.

News: The Phoenix Suns have announced the signing of forward Anthony Tolliver.
Impact: The two sides reached a deal last week. This is the seventh NBA team for the 6-foot-8 Tolliver, an accurate 3-point shooter who could help fill the void left by the departure of Channning Frye. The two-year contract is worth $6 million, but only $400,000 is guaranteed in the second season. Tolliver shot a career-high 41 percent from 3-point range for Charlotte last season, averaging 6.1 points and 2.6 rebounds in 64 games.

News: Goodwin contributed 13 points (3-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-9 FT) and five rebounds in 32 minutes during the Suns' 88-62 loss versus the Mavericks at the Las Vegas Summer League on Friday.
Impact: Goodwin averaged 12.8 points (36.4 FG, 12.5 3Pt, 79.3 FT), 3.0 rebounds, 0.8 assists, and 1.2 steals in five summer league games. Still, with T.J. Warren being drafted and P.J. Tucker being re-signed, it's unclear how much of a role Goodwin will be able to carve out for himself with the Suns in 2014-15.

News: Plumlee averaged 8.5 points (35.1 FG, 72.7 FT), 11.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.2 steals, and 2.0 blocks in 29 minutes during the Las Vegas Summer League.
Impact: Despite posting an uninspiring field goal percentage, Plumlee had a decent summer league. As it stands, he's slated to be the Suns' starting center again in 2014-15.

News: Two people with knowledge of the situation say free agent Anthony Tolliver has agreed to a two-year, $6 million contract with the Phoenix Suns. Both spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced. Only $400,000 of the second year of the contract is guaranteed.
Impact: The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 6.1 points and 2.6 rebounds in 64 games last season with Charlotte, his sixth team in six NBA seasons. Tolliver shot 42 percent from 3-point range, and the Suns see him as a "stretch forward" to help fill the void created by the departure of Channing Frye, who opted out of the final year of his contract and signed with Orlando. Tolliver has a career average of 6.1 points.

News: Len will miss the remainder of the Las Vegas summer league with a broken right pinky.
Impact: Len, the fifth pick overall in the 2013 draft, was injured in his summer league debut on Saturday night. He was supposed to be an important summer league for Len as he tries to improve on his spotty rookie season. He missed all of last offseason recovering from surgeries on both ankles. He is to have the finger evaluated in Phoenix on Monday.

News: The Phoenix Suns officially announced the acquisition of Thomas on Saturday in a sign-and-trade deal with the Sacramento Kings.
Impact: The deal had been reported by multiple outlets on Friday. The Suns envision Thomas as a complement to their double point guard starting lineup of Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. The 5-foot-9 Thomas averaged 20.3 points and 6.3 assists for the Kings last season, his third in the NBA, and was a restricted free agent. He was one of six players to average at least 20 points and six assists in 2013-14.

News: Two people with knowledge of the situation say the Phoenix Suns agreed to a sign-and-trade deal with the Sacramento Kings for point guard Isaiah Thomas.
Impact: The people, who sought anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced, say Thomas is signing a four-year, $27 million contract. In exchange, the Kings get the draft rights to center Alex Oriakhi, a second-round draft pick of the Suns in 2013.
