Despite a Town of Prescott Valley announcement on July 7 that said the team would “be playing at a location, to be determined, in the Phoenix metro area” for the 2020-21 NBA G League season, the organization has not yet made a decision about moving from its current home, said Jacob Withee, the NAZ Suns’ manager of communications.

The team is still exploring its options, he said.
