NBA preseason, Phoenix Suns: Suns move forward with full 15-man roster

The Phoenix suns are keeping 15 players on their roster to start the regular season. How it all plays out, however, remains to be seen.

The Phoenix Suns are going to keep 15 players, the maximum number allowed by the NBA, on their roster in a move that will mark the first time since 2005 that the team has done so.

Our good friends over at Bright Side of the Sun had plenty of good insight into the situation and explained that the option for second year forward Markieff Morris was picked up in conjunction with the decision to keep a full roster. Morris showed plenty of promise in his first year with Phoenix and figures to be a key component of the team as they build for a -- pardon the pun -- brighter future with the Suns.

One intriguing position is at the point guard spot, where second year man Diante Garrett has one of the two final spots as the team's fourth stringer at that position. He'll have to fight to remain on the roster as he was relegated to the D-League a year ago.
