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.
