Locked On Suns Wednesday: Aaron Nelson is out as James Jones puts his mark on the Suns

Why Jones’ moves could signal a sea change in the Phoenix front office.

We discuss the latest news on the Suns’ staff, most notably the departure of head trainer Aaron Nelson, who is heading to the Pelicans.

In addition, the Suns hired analytics and development assistant Riccardo Fois from Gonzaga, potentially to replace Jake Loos, who headed the analytics and tech department in Phoenix until this summer. The Suns also are partnering with Steward Health Care and the EXOS training center as they transition away from Nelson’s staff.

Does all of this show a franchise shaping into Jones’ vision or more of the same constant resetting in Phoenix?
