"Ryan distinguished himself among an impressive group of candidates for our GM position," said Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby. "His natural leadership and communication skills will serve the Suns well. And, his prodigious work ethic and ability to identify talent will enable us to take full advantage of the 10 draft choices, including six in the first round, that we have over the next three years. We welcome his championship pedigree to our organization."

There will be a press conference on Thursday to introduce McDonough to the Suns fans and media.

Here's an EXTENSIVE profile of McDonough that ran on SB Nation a few weeks ago:

The next generation GM: Ryan McDonough and the Celtics are helping usher in a new age of player evaluation - SBNation.com
McDonough can call up reports on his ever-present iPad of players he’s seen live and broken down on video. As he sifts through his information, he’s cautious against being too high or too low on a player. Scouting isn’t linear. His evaluations are a constant process.
