The Suns are moving training camp to San Diego this fall.

The weeklong camp will be held at the University of San Diego from Sept. 28 to Oct. 4.

The Suns have trained at McKale Center at  the University of Arizona for  three of the last four seasons (2005, 2007, 2008), with a trip to Italy in between. Before moving to Tucson, the Suns spent 16 of the seasons in Flagstaff from 1986-2004, plus a stop at then-America West Arena and Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

"We very much appreciate the hospitality Tucson and the University of Arizona have shown our team the past few years and we look forward to returning in the future, but this season felt like an appropriate time to move camp out of town," general manager Steve Kerr said in a statement. "It’s not uncommon for a team to train away from home and San Diego presents an opportunity to focus on the task at hand."
