I can't tell you how happy I am to hear this news. Lon Babby, recently extended for two more seasons as the President of Basketball Operations for the Phoenix Suns, has made the first huge step in the next phase of rebuilding the Suns.
Per the news release:
"Lance has been a trusted friend and colleague," said Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby. "I thank him personally and professionally for his hard work on behalf of the Suns. We will continue to prepare for the offseason even as we look for his replacement."
A press conference has been scheduled for NOON on Tuesday. Either Kris or I or both of us will be there.
This is the most excited I have felt since 2010, folks. I don't yet know how to put my feelings into words.
More analysis to come soon.
