Truth & Rumors
Assistants next on Suns coaching list
The conclusions of the NBA conference finals have afforded the Suns a chance to have second interviews with Detroit Pistons lead assistant coach Terry Porter and a first visit with San Antonio Spurs lead assistant Mike Budenholzer this week. Porter is coming to Phoenix early this week. Suns General Manager Steve Kerr and Senior Vice President of Basketball Operations David Griffin met with Porter in Detroit on May 15, when the Pistons had a break between playoff rounds.

Yankees eye Rockies setup man

Niners, Raiders to Los Angeles?
The City of Industry, on the eastern edge of Los Angeles County, could be Plan D for the 49ers, perhaps for the Raiders when their lease expires in 2010 -- or for any NFL team wanting to move into the second-largest population center of the United States. All Ed Roski asks before breaking ground is for a current NFL team to agree to move into his $800 million baby. Who might that be? Mostly you hear talk of San Diego or Minnesota, but other teams might want to take up Roski on his offer because of the financial ramifications. Those franchises include Jacksonville, New Orleans, Buffalo and, some say, St. Louis. Or one of the two Bay Area teams. (Oakland Tribune)
