Phoenix Suns have been granted permission to talk to San Antonio Spurs assistant general manager Dennis Lindsey about being their next GM on the condition they wait until after Thursday's draft, league sources said Tuesday.Any of these names jump off the computer screen for you guys & gals? I think anyone out of S.A.'s front office is held in high regard by most because of their track record and PTL & BOS have also built some pretty good rosters over the years so my informal, totally non-educated list is: 1- Ainge (b/c of his ties to PHX) 2- Lindsey 3- Penn *Dark horse- Todd Quinter. I don't know if he has a chance but at least he's in-house so that would lead to some continuity in the F/O...
While Lindsey appears to be at the top of the Suns' list, he is not the only candidate in which owner Robert Sarver is interested.
Sources said Sarver also hopes to talk to Boston GM Danny Ainge, former New Jersey assistant GM Kiki Vandeweghe and former Portland Trail Blazers assistant GM Tom Penn. Sources told ESPN.com's Marc Stein that Sarver also has interest in Sacramento Kings assistant general manager Jason Levien.
