KEY GAME INFORMATION
PHOENIX: GUARDS: With Steve Nash gone, GORAN DRAGIC takes over at the point. He was a monster as a starter in Houston late last year, and he's familiar with Phoenix's system from his time there as Nash's backup . . . SHANNON BROWN is one of the league's better sixth men and could end up seeing close to starter minutes this year. Once just a raw athlete, he's made major strides as a shooter and ball-handler . . . KENDALL MARSHALL was a bit of a product of an absurdly talented supporting cast in college at UNC. He's got work to do to become an NBA-caliber starter, but he'll be capable enough as a backup point guard as a rookie . . . SEBASTIAN TELFAIR still can't hit an open jump shot, but will factor into the backcourt rotation. FORWARDS: LUIS SCOLA steps in as the starting four. While he's in his 30's and an underwhelming athlete, he's crafty and relentless . . . JARED DUDLEY will continue to be their main catch-and-shoot threat on the wing. It might take a while to develop an on-court chemistry with Dragic . . . MICHAEL BEASLEY has a chance to grab a starting spot. He rarely has his head on straight, but he can score . . . CHANNING FRYE, the sharp-shooting 7-footer, will likely miss the 2012-13 season due to an enlarged heart, but this condition is expected to completely heal . . . WESLEY JOHNSON gets a fresh start. He needs to start knocking down shots to land a rotation spot . . . MARKIEFF MORRIS showed flashes as a rookie, but has to make better decisions on the offensive end. He'll be a key on the second unit . . . Well-traveled P.J. TUCKER earned himself a roster spot with an impressive Summer League. CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT had a great year-and-a-half alongside Steve Nash, and he'll have to prove he can create in the low post a little more. But he's a skilled big man who should pair nicely with Luis Scola as a scorer and passer in the post . . . Injury-riddled JERMAINE O'NEAL is still a strong low-post defender and shot-blocker.
SACRAMENTO: GUARDS: MARCUS THORNTON is the only one guaranteed a consistent role on the perimeter . . . ISAIAH THOMAS was the story of the second half for the Kings. He can fill up the box score, but at 5-foot-9 (at best) he's too much of a defensive liability and not a point guard . . . AARON BROOKS is the most talented guard on this team. He's had attitude problems in the past, but he could, and should, lead this team . . . Now that he remained in Sacto, TYREKE EVANS will be playing off the ball at the three against his wishes . . . The Kings will keep on trying to unload JOHN SALMONS, who's not a useful NBA player . . . JIMMER FREDETTE should have a role off the bench, but his ball-handling is not where it has to be for an NBA point guard . . . FRANCISCO GARCIA's chance seems to have passed him by. FORWARDS: THOMAS ROBINSON should emerge as a starter early in his rookie year. He has his flaws on both ends of the floor, but he brings energy and doesn't need a lot of touches to get his points . . . Even if Robinson knocks him to the bench, JASON THOMPSON should play the five at times and see close to starter's minutes . . . JAMES JOHNSON should also play big minutes soon considering his ability to make positive contributions without a lot of touches . . . CHUCK HAYES should continue to play second-unit minutes as a glue guy . . . TRAVIS OUTLAW has regressed to the point that he's lucky to have a roster spot . . . TYLER HONEYCUTT has an intriguing skill set as a defensive-minded point forward, but he's likely ticketed for the D-League again. CENTERS: DeMARCUS COUSINS came on strong late last season. There's no doubt he has All-Star potential, but between his awful shot selection and occasional attitude problems, he just hasn't lived up to his potential. After Team USA passed on him this summer because of reported maturity problems, he might still not get it.

*Suns-Kings Preview* ====================

By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO STATS Writer

Phoenix (13-28) at Sacramento (16-26), 10:00 p.m. EDT

The Phoenix Suns own the worst record in the Western Conference, so they're hoping a coaching change can provide a jolt.

The Sacramento Kings aren't much better, and their potential changes include packing their bags.

Lindsey Hunter will make his coaching debut as the Suns attempt to win for just the third time in over a month Wednesday night when they visit the Kings.

Phoenix (13-28) seems to be on its way to a third consecutive season out of the playoffs after losing 13 of 15 since a season-high four-game winning streak, falling to the bottom of the West.

Those woes continued with Thursday's 98-94 loss to Milwaukee, a defeat that resulted in coach Alvin Gentry and the club mutually agreeing to part ways.

That was the initial move in a shakeup that also has seemingly led to the departure of assistants Dan Majerle and Elston Turner, who were among those interviewed to replace Gentry.

Instead, it'll be Hunter - the team's player development director - at the helm for the remaining 41 games.

"I think the simple answer is that the organization needed a jolt," general manager Lance Blanks said. "We needed something that would shock the system of us, the players, and risk trumps safety in this business. We felt this was the right person to take the risk on."

Hunter spent 17 seasons in the NBA before retiring in 2010, winning NBA titles with the Los Angeles Lakers and Detroit. The three practices since his hiring have been longer than the ones Gentry ran.

"I know these practices are a lot longer than they are accustomed to, but we've got a lot to get accomplished," Hunter said. "Like I told them, I don't watch the clock. I just watch what they do, and we have to work until we can't forget what we're supposed to do, not until we get it. We have to work until we can't forget it."

The emphasis on defense may help the Suns since they give up an average of 104.1 points on 40.5 percent shooting from beyond the arc while going 3-17 on the road.

"I'm a defensive guy," Hunter said. "That's the identity that we're going to try to create, is being a tough, nasty, defensive-minded team, and we'll go from there."

The Kings (16-26) may be headed for an identity overhaul of their own, possibly relocating to Seattle and becoming the SuperSonics. While the move is still awaiting approval from NBA owners, Sacramento is making efforts to keep the team.

The Kings are returning home for the first time since the Maloof family announced that they were selling their entire 65 percent share for $525 million to a Seattle group led by investor Chris Hansen on Monday. Hours following that announcement, Sacramento fell 114-105 at New Orleans to lose for the sixth time in nine games. The Kings are allowing an average of 111.7 points in those defeats.

DeMarcus Cousins had 29 points and 13 rebounds against the Hornets, and is averaging 23.0 and 13.0 over the past five games.

The center has 20.9 points per game and 9.6 boards over seven meetings with the Suns, but turned in one of his worst performances of the season against them in a 101-90 loss Dec. 17. Cousins finished with nine points and 10 rebounds while making only 1 of 10 attempts from the floor.

That was Phoenix's fourth consecutive win in the series, and Jared Dudley is averaging 18.0 points over the past five meetings.

The swingman had 20 points against the Kings last month, while Shannon Brown poured in 22 while sinking 10 of 13 from the floor.

Brown, who averages 12.3 points, has totaled 41 over the last two games.
