The 2023-24 Phoenix Suns possess a loaded roaster this season but also a very unique one in that they don’t have a true point guard among their Top 8 rotation players.

Phoenix will rely on the ballhandling and playmaking of newly acquired star Bradley Beal as well as All-Star Devin Booker for those duties, which will be interesting considering the former’s turnover problems in the past. Along with their star backcourt, the Suns also bring back future Hall-of-Famer Kevin Durant, still in his prime though maybe at the twilight of it based on his injury problems over recent years.

The Suns also finally cut ties with former No. 1 overall pick Deandre Ayton, famously taken over Luka Doncic back in 2018, trading him to Portland in exchange for Jusuf Nurkic, a limited center defensively though a far better playmaker on offense.

Below, the 2023-24 Phoenix Suns depth chart: starters and backups.

How Avnet's Diamondback jersey sponsorship is paying off

The postseason success the Arizona Diamondbacks have had the last few weeks has put the young team in front of a lot more eyes on a national level.

The postseason success the Arizona Diamondbacks have had the last few weeks has put the young team in front of a lot more eyes on a national level. Also getting a lot more attention is Phoenix-based technology distributor and solutions provider Avnet Inc. (Nasdaq: AVT), which has its logo on the Diamondbacks jerseys.

An Avnet logo patch is featured on the sleeve of the Major League Baseball team and is visible on TV throughout the game — but especially when the Diamondbacks are up to bat.

The team and the company track how many impressions the logo is making each game and Phil Gallagher, Avnet’s CEO, told the Business Journal that he was already satisfied with the sponsorship deal — but seeing the team sweep through the first two rounds of the playoffs and make the NLCS is icing on the cake.

“We're in a bonus lane now with the playoffs – this is huge now with the national scale that we’re going to get in visibility,” Gallagher said. “We're very pleased. Our employees are enjoying it.Not to mention that we get some customers and suppliers that like to get out to the game.”

Avnet is one of 11 companies that have sponsored a jersey patch for an MLB team. When the Diamondbacks and Avnet announced the deal in February, it was only the third to do so.

Avnet, which is a B2B company, doesn’t do a lot of mass marketing and doesn’t fit the profile for a usual sports sponsor, which made the patch pitch a little harder for them.

“We’re a B2B. We're not selling beer and potato chips,” Gallagher said. “In order to come up with a hard ROI I can’t just sell more beer and more potato chips.”

But after a lot of discussions with Diamondbacks CEO Derrick Hall, Cullen Maxey, the team’s executive vice president of business operations, and Steve Mullins, the D-backs senior vice president of corporate partnerships, Gallagher and his leadership team realized the return on his investment won’t just be getting new customers. Rather, the partnership could fulfill some of his company’s goals with working in and giving to the community. For the first year, the most visible return on Avnet’s investment has come in the form of community and employee engagement.

“The D-backs are all about the community,” Gallagher said. “What they do for STEM – science, technology, engineering, math – education, their giving back to the community, the work they do with St. Vincent de Paul, it all really aligned with our values.”

Over the season, Avnet sponsored several giving events with the Diamondbacks, including the 50-50 raffle at the games and awarding a total of $250,000 in college STEM scholarships to 14 unsuspecting students at a surprise ceremony during a Diamondbacks game in May.

“We had never done anything like this before,” Gallagher said. “This is a big step for us, but we felt that the two A's aligned together – the Arizona Diamondbacks and Avnet.”

The excitement of the 2023 season wasn't limited to Chase Field, where the D-backs play their home games. Gallagher said the team has become part of the Avnet work life, with members of the Diamondbacks and even the mascot Baxter making appearances at the Avnet offices. Avnet was also able to have an employee day at Chase Field — employees and their families got to go on the field, hit balls and check out the World Series trophy.

“From employee recruiting and engagement perspective, it's really been terrific,” Gallagher said.

A lot of Avnet’s clients and suppliers have reached out to Gallagher when they saw the patch on TV. One CEO even called Gallagher up after seeing the patch on national TV and asked him some details about doing a sponsorship like that.

The patch also has been noticed by other sports teams and companies, and Gallagher said he and his marketing team have been getting a lot of calls and pitches to sponsor other teams and events across the country.

“We're sticking with the D-backs right now. It was a bit experimental, but we signed up for a multiple-year opportunity with the D-backs and we’re going to stick with that,” Gallagher said.

Still, Avnet has been increasingly doing more sports related marketing. The company was involved with the Arizona Super Bowl Host Committee this past year and is working with the Final Four Host Committee and the WM Phoenix Open. Gallagher said he’s only getting involved with sports in Arizona right now because that is where the company is headquartered and that is where he wants to embrace the broader community.

Diamondbacks executive Hall told the Business Journal that Avnet’s involvement has led to some inquires from new sponsors — he expects Avnet’s happiness with the deal to help the D-backs land new sponsors in the future.

“We're going to be able to point to Avnet as being a success and that others can do it too,” Hall said.

With the success of the team, Hall said he’s been able to sign on several new partners during the 2023 season, including Chas Roberts A/C & Plumbing Inc., which inked a multi-year deal with the Diamondbacks.

But Hall is appreciative of Gallagher and Avnet’s commitment, which happened before the season when Hall and Gallagher didn’t know what to expect from 2023 team.

“The way the team's playing far exceeded [Gallagher’s] expectations and they're hearing from a lot of customers about how exciting it is for them to see the Avnet logo [on TV and at the games],” Hall said. “And we've heard that from a lot of the corporate partners.”

While Hall says the exposure in the playoffs is beneficial for its corporate sponsors, Gallagher jokes that Avnet has also been a "good luck charm for Derrick and the D-backs."

“I just sent him an email, telling him ‘you can, he can thank me later,'" Gallagher said.

‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse appears across America and in Arizona

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - It’s not polite to block someone’s view, but on Saturday morning, our Moon really doesn’t care! No matter where you are across the state of Arizona, you will be able to witness the effects of the ‘annular eclipse’ when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, causing it to darken the sky across not only our state, but across North, Central & South America.

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - It’s not polite to block someone’s view, but on Saturday morning, our Moon really doesn’t care! No matter where you are across the state of Arizona, you will be able to witness the effects of the ‘annular eclipse’ when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, causing it to darken the sky across not only our state, but across North, Central & South America. Think of it as a celestial “excuse me”! But it is never safe to look at a solar eclipse without the proper eye protection. More on that in a bit.

Most of us will see the start of the partial eclipse starting at 8:10 a.m. here in Phoenix. The Moon will block out about 80% of the Sun. The peak of the eclipse is at 9:31 a.m. The sky show will be over right around 11 a.m. Up near the Four Corners, Arizonans who live or travel to that area will get a very special, rare treat. The Moon will cover almost the entire surface of the Sun, otherwise known as the path of totality. The Moon will appear to have a ring of fire around it for those in that area just before 10 a.m. The elliptical orbit of the Moon makes this an annular rather than a total eclipse. The Moon will be at “apogee” which is farthest away from Earth. Next year on April 8th, the Moon will be at “perigee,” or closest to Earth, to completely block out the Sun in some areas of the country.

Our Arizona's Family meteorologist Sean McLaughlin breaks down how much of the sun will be eclipsed based on your location in the United States.

The path of totality will also cross parts of Oregon, California, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, New Mexico and Texas, according to the Time and Date website, where you can find specific times to view the eclipse at your location or specific city.

Our Arizona's Family meteorologist Sean McLaughlin breaks down how to make your own eclipse viewer for this weekend's solar eclipse.

Because looking directly at the sun at any time can cause eye damage, you must have the proper eye protection to view this eclipse. The Arizona Science Center will be open early to have a viewing party with free specialized glasses so you can safely view the eclipse. You can also watch a special feed of the event from your home computer or smartphone on NASA TV. Or make your own ‘eclipse viewer’ out of a cardboard box, something you can do with your children or grandchildren to get them excited about science! We will also have coverage Saturday morning on Good Morning Arizona.

PHOENIX — Phoenix is not done with the triple digits yet this year.

A strong ridge of high pressure has set up over the desert southwest and is bringing Valley highs back into the low 100s starting Sunday.

The best part about this next heatwave, we are also headed back into record territory!

Monday's forecast is now up to 103 degrees, which could break the record of 102 for that day set in 2020.

It will be a close call on Tuesday, too. Right now, the forecast is 101 degrees and the record that day is 102.

On average, our last triple-digit day is around October 5th but we have seen triple digits all the way into late October before. The latest ever recorded was October 27, 2016.

Phoenix has now had 126 days this year at 100 degrees or more. That is the sixth most on record. The average number is 111 days and the all-time record is 145 days, set back in 2020.

With 100s in the forecast for at least a few more days this year, 2023 will likely slide into the third-place spot for the most triple-digit days ever recorded.

Remember to watch for signs of heat-related illness as our temperatures creep back up. Drink plenty of water, take breaks from the heat, use sunscreen and limit outdoor activities between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Temperatures will start dropping again toward the middle to end of next week. Phoenix should be back into the mid-90s by next Friday.

Dry conditions look to hold out statewide for at least the next week.



Monsoon 2023 officially ended on September 30th and it's going down as the driest on record with only 0.15 inches of rain at Phoenix Sky Harbor.

The previous record was set back in 1924 when we measured 0.35 inches of rain.

Monsoon 2023 was also the second driest monsoon on record for all of Maricopa County.

It was an incredibly hot monsoon, too.

Phoenix hit 110 degrees or hotter 55 days this year, breaking the old record of 53 days set in 2020.

Phoenix hit 115 degrees or hotter 22 days this year. That too is a new all-time record, topping the previous one of 14 days set in 2020.

When it comes to overnight temperatures, Phoenix had 35 days this year with lows in the 90s. The previous record was 28 days set in 2020.

September 10th this year also marked the latest day in any year with a low in the 90s. Previously the record was September 7, 2019.____________________________________________________________________________________
