PHOENIX -- After a season of injuries and indecision, the Phoenix Suns hope they have tweaked their young roster correctly as they open the 2016-17 season against the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.Two years ago, the Suns best three guards (Eric Bledsoe, Goran Dragic and Isaiah Thomas) all played the same position. But the logjam at point guard quickly went from unworkable to untenable, beginning a spiral that forced a reboot to the Suns rebuilding plans.Now the Suns kick off the 2016-17 season with three guards with defined positions and roles.Bledsoe is the survivor of the purge and the undisputed point guard, hoping to rebound from injuries that forced him to watch most of last seasons 23-59 disaster from the sideline.Devin Booker, who rose from the ashes of a terrible season, is now the starting shooting guard and face of the franchise a few days shy of his 20th birthday. He became the fourth-youngest player in league history (behind LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant) to score 1,000 points in a season.Brandon Knight, plagued by injuries and inconsistency but an undeniable offensive force, will come off the bench as a sixth man who will see major playing time in coach Earl Watsons rotation that now includes former Suns Leandro Barbosa and Jared Dudley and a host of promising but unproven talent.With Bledsoe, Booker, Knight and Barbosa heading up the guard rotation, the Suns waived Archie Goodwin on Monday and opted to keep John Jenkins and Tyler Ulis at the end of the bench. Goodwin had several highlight-reel moments during his three seasons with the Suns but never enough to warrant serious playing time.Suns general manager Ryan McDonough told Arizona Sports 98.7 FM that Goodwin had requested a change of scenery.We felt like we got down to 16 really good, quality NBA players. Archie and his agents for the last few months asked us to accommodate a trade request, McDonough said. With that in mind, we told Archie and his agent wed try to help him move to a team where hed have an opportunity and play. Unfortunately, we werent able to work out a deal. This time of a year, its hard.Forward P.J. Tucker, who underwent back surgery in September, was cleared to play on Tuesday and will come off the bench. T.J. Warren, coming off season-ending foot surgery himself, will start at forward with Dudley and Tyson Chandler at center.While the Suns have missed the playoffs for six consecutive seasons, the Kings are trying to break a 10-year postseason drought. Despite an explosive season from center DeMarcus Cousins, who ranked fourth in the NBA in scoring at 26.9 points per game, the Kings won only 33 games -- the most in Cousins six season in Sacramento.The Kings won three out of four meetings with the Suns last season, and Cousins was a big reason.Sacramento will start the season without starting point guard Darren Collison, who will begin an eight-game suspension due to a guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery. Ty Lawson will start at the point for the Kings, looking to rebound after two poor seasons and two DUI arrests in 2015.The Kings will open the season with 11 games in the first 17 days. Most of those games will be with Lawson as the only true point guard on the roster.Its going to be a rough stretch, Lawson told the Sacramento Bee. If things go bad, weve just got to stick together. We cant pull apart. Things are going to happen, but I feel like if we stay positive and stick together, well be able to get through it.Former Sun and new King Matt Barnes will miss his first game with the Kings due to rib and knee problems. Jordan Greenway Wild Jersey . Fred Couples, captain of the U.S. side, put it all into perspective. "We know whos in charge," he said. J.T. Brown Jersey . Ferrer, trying to win his fourth title on Mexican soil, will next play South Africas Kevin Anderson, who eliminated American Sam Querrey,7-6 (2), 6-4. Also Wednesday, Gilles Simon (6) of France beat Donald Young of the United States 6-4, 6-3, Ukraines Alexandr Dolgopolov downed Frenchman Jeremy Chardy 6-3, 6-4 and Croatias Ivo Karlovic defeated Dudi Sela of Israel 7-6 (4), 6-2. http://www.authenticwildpro.com/Greg-pateryn-wild-jersey/ . After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week. Custom Minnesota Wild Jerseys . After a first half in which he thought "the lid was on the basket," the Toronto Raptors coach watched his squad mount a second half surge to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-91. Marcus Foligno Wild Jersey . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web. SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The Sacramento Kings have signed free agent point guard Jordan Farmar.General manager Vlade Divac announced the deal Wednesday.Farmar has averaged 7.7 points and 2.9 assists per game in nine NBA seasons. He won two NBA titles as a reserve on the Los Angeles Lakers in 2009 and 10.Farmmar spent last season with Maccabi Tel Aviv and the Memphis Grizzlies, where he averaged 9.dddddddddddd2 points and 3.1 assists per game under current Kings coach Dave Joerger.
