John Treloar Rumors
Director of Player Personnel John Treloar, who ran most of the basketball operation for former Suns General Manager Lance Blanks, also will leave after the June 25 NBA draft to become the associate head coach at Louisiana State, where he was an assistant coach from 2004-08. Treloar has scouted prospects and organized draft workouts for the Suns since Ryan McDonough became general manager in 2013, the same time assistant GM Pat Connelly was hired.
The Phoenix Suns today announced a series of moves within the team’s basketball operations department. Pat Connelly has been named to the role of Assistant General Manager and Trevor Bukstein has been promoted to Assistant General Manager. Ronnie Lester has been named a scout and Emilio Kovacic has been named International Scouting Consultant. John Treloar will remain the team’s Director of Player Personnel; John Shumate and Bubba Burrage remain scouts.
The Phoenix Suns named 30-year basketball veteran John Treloar the club’s director of player personnel. In his new role, Treloar will assist President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby and General Manager Lance Blanks in all personnel decisions and will lead the club’s draft scouting process. “I have a tremendous amount of respect for John and his knowledge of the game,” said Blanks. “His longstanding track record of consistency and success are admirable. He is a perfect fit for what we are trying to do.”
John Treloar’s stint with the Erie BayHawks might be coming to an end. Treloar, 53, has been contacted by National Basketball Association teams, according to two sources close to the situation. Treloar, who headed up a free-agent tryout for the BayHawks this past weekend at Family First Sports Park, has a 48-52 coaching record with the NBA Development League franchise.
John Treloar might have finished his career as a coach for the Erie BayHawks in the D-League. According to various sources, teams from NBA may be interested in him as a head coach. These teams would more likely be the San Antonio Spurs and the Phoenix Suns, both of which have people that has already worked with Treloar.
