Luis Scola Arrives in Phoenix Following Strong London Olympics

Phoenix Suns forward Luis Scola arrived in Phoenix on Wednesday for a team photo shoot and to meet with Suns' staffers.

The well-traveled Argentinian has had a busy summer that included being amnestied by the Houston Rockets, playing in the London 2012 Olympic Games and changing his mailing address. Given the obvious challenges, he's kept a positive attitude throughout it all.

"It's an exciting time for me," he told reporters. "It's a change and I always take change in a good way. You can make it good or bad so I think you have to make it good."

Scola has reason to feel good about the potential to build on a solid performance in the Olympics, where he finished fifth in scoring average with 18 points per game. If Phoenix can get that type of production out of the 32-year-old, then all of the moving will be well worth it.
