The Phoenix Suns had nine players on the court when they opened training camp on Saturday night, with the others expected to join the team in the next day or two.
Grant Hill, free agent signee Sebastian Telfair and first-round draft pick Markieff Morris were awaiting working out details of their contracts before joining the workouts at Grand Canyon University.
Another free agent acquisition, Shannon Brown, has signed his deal and practiced. Brown, who left the Los Angeles Lakers, says his ability fits well into the Suns' fast-paced system.
Corey Gaines, coach of the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury, was pressed into service so the team could run 5-on-5 drills.
