Phoenix Suns GM Lance Blanks ousted

April 22, 2013

The Phoenix Suns are looking for a new general manager. The team has let its GM go after the second-worst season in the club’s history. 

Lance Blanks has served as Suns GM since August 2010, coming to the team after stints with the Cleveland Cavaliers and San Antonio Spurs.

When he came aboard, Blanks was seen as a rising star joining the team’s front office. But this season’s been rough for the Suns, finishing 25 and 57 after losing stars like Steve Nash and Grant Hill.

The only season the Suns have fared worse was their first, in 1968-69.

In a statement, Suns’ President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby thanked Blanks for his hard work and said he’s been a trusted friend and colleague.
