The Phoenix Suns plan to start their free agency with pursuits of LaMarcus Aldridge and Kevin Love.

The Suns are not permitted to comment on free agents but said they will be aggressive. They will also have another priority in Brandon Knight.

"We're going to be aggressive and target the best players," Ryan McDonough said. "I think you'll see us go after the top guys. We hope to get meetings with some of the top free agents and sell them on all Phoenix has to offer.

"You win big in this league with elite players. We had some success over the past couple years, not as much as we'd like this past year, but we're going to be aggressive. There's a great history and tradition here. You saw how a player like Steve Nash transforms an organization when he arrives. We'd be doing a disservice to ourselves and our fans if we didn't go after the top guys."
