PHOENIX - The Phoenix Suns announced that Ryan McDonough will serve as the Suns new General Manager.
The organization made the announcement on Tuesday morning.
McDonough joins the Suns after serving the past three seasons as the assistant General Manager with the Boston Celtics. The 33-year-old joined the Celtics front office in 2003.
"(McDonough's) 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," said Suns President of Basketball Operation Lon Babby.
The Suns will introduce McDonough at a press conference on Thursday at 11:30 a.m.
