(Tyson) Chandler has not been able to speak to (Markieff) Morris yet but he expects to do so soon. His message will focus on how Morris’ feelings toward General Manager Ryan McDonough, adviser and former President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby and Managing Partner Robert Sarver should have no bearing on his play or relationship with teammates and coaches.

The Suns do not intend to trade Morris. They are counting on him to be their starting power forward and continue his career trajectory of improvement over four seasons in Phoenix. Playing alongside a high-character, former All-Star with a championship ring and elite rebounding and defensive ability could only help Morris.
