Lon Babby Rumors
Babby’s second contract as Suns president of basketball operations will expire at the end of July but he will remain a part-time senior adviser. Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough takes over as head of basketball operations. Babby, 64, never intended to stay past his first three-year contract but he is smitten with Phoenix, where he will stay involved in Suns contract negotiations and salary-cap management. The change will not be a major shake-up with McDonough, after two years in Phoenix, already leading much of the operation and Babby hesitating to even cut back to half as much work.
Ramona Shelburne: Suns President Lon Babby on the assault charges filed against the Morris twins: “We are disappointed to learn that Marcus and Markieff Morris have been charged. This is a serious matter, and we will treat it as such. However, at this time, we think it is most appropriate to continue to monitor the legal process as it unfolds before responding further.”
“Obviously, that’s something we need,” Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby said. “If he (Granger) is capable of playing and providing that, that’d be a plus. He’s a very professional person and very intelligent. We enjoy having him here. It just depends on how he feels. He thinks he’s got more left. We hope he’s right. He’s going to work hard, I know that.”
