Phoenix Suns Re-Sign Renowned Training Staff to New Contracts

The Suns' Training Staff is well-known league wide for their efficient and innovative approach to athletic care. Today, the Suns announced that they have promoted and re-signed the core of that team.

The Suns have announced that athletic trainer/voodoo practitioner Aaron Nelson has been promoted to Vice President of Athlete Care and Head Athletic Center. They also re-signed Mike Elliott, Head Strength and Conditioning Coach/Assistant Athletic Trainer, to a multi-year contract.

Lon Babby had this to say about the news:

"We are delighted to enter into multi-year agreements with Aaron and Mike. The Suns' training and medical staff has been justly recognized not only among the very best in the NBA, but in all of professional sports. Their innovative approach to athlete care and performance recovery is world class."

This is great news for the franchise and its fans, as the widely respected training staff has been one of the team's best strengths in not only helping players recover, but to also attract free agents (see Grant Hill and Jermaine O'Neal). This is a huge move for the Suns' future. Kudos to Babby for getting it done.

Keep workin' that magic, Aarron!
