Suns exercise Dudley, Lopez options

Associated Press

PHOENIX -- The Phoenix Suns exercised their options on the contracts of forward Jared Dudley and center Robin Lopez for the 2010-11 season, but declined the option on the contract of swingman Alando Tucker.

Dudley is entering his first full season with the Suns after being acquired in a multiplayer trade with Charlotte on Dec. 10.

Lopez was Phoenix's first-round pick in the 2008 draft. He is recovering from a broken bone in his left foot.

Tucker was a first-round draft pick of Phoenix in 2007 and has played in just 36 games, including 30 last season.

The moves were announced Friday.
