The Phoenix Suns have been struggling this season and are potentially on pace for the second-worst record in team history.

For some fans, Thursday was to be a day of hope with the arrival of the NBA trading deadline. They didn’t do much before the trade deadline, except for the swap that sent forward Markieff Morris to the Washington Wizards for a first round draft pick and forwards Kris Humphries and DeJuan Blair. Dave King, who covers the Suns for the blog Bright Side of the Sun, spoke about Morris' bumpy relationship with management and fans.

Morris had asked for a trade prior to the season, after his twin brother Marcus was dealt to the Detroit Pistons.
