Dudley prefers the Suns
By Nick Borges
Jared Dudley is aware his name has been mentioned in the rumor mill and if it's up to him he will remain with the Phoenix Suns past this Thursday's NBA trade deadline.
According to Dave King of SB Nation, the Suns forward was interviewed on Friday and said: "Just because our team's bad I don't want to jump off. No."
Dudley, who is signed through 2015-16, is valuable because he can play multiple positions on the floor. He has been linked with the Knicks due to the Suns interest in Iman Shumpert, however New York will likely not trade their best backcourt defender.
