On Sunday night, we learned Suns forward Alan "Big Sauce" Williams, one of the team's most pleasant surprises last season, is staying home after reportedly agreeing to a three-year, $17 million deal to remain in the Valley.

"I'm staying home, Phoenix!!!" the Phoenix native and North High School alum tweeted Monday morning. 

To celebrate the announcement, rapper and Tempe resident Futuristic paid homage to Big Sauce in a new music video. Futuristic, who attended McClintock High School in Tempe and Desert Ridge High School in Mesa, has nearly 1.3 million followers on Facebook and will perform in the Valley on Oct. 21.
