All Josh Jackson has ever needed was a rim and ball to put “the work in” as he calls it.

So he hadn’t really thought about how a new practice facility would benefit the Phoenix Suns when the city council approved a $230-million renovation proposal for Talking Stick Resort Arena, but Jackson was very happy with the vote back in January.

“I’m excited about the renovations, the practice facility,” Jackson said days after the council voted 6-2 in favor of the proposal. “Going around and seeing what (other NBA teams) have and just knowing we deserve to have nicer things, too. I know it’s going to be really, really nice. I think it’s really going to benefit us down the road.”
