Suns keeping Ryan McDonough as GM

The Phoenix Suns are planning to keep general manager Ryan McDonough in place entering the final year of his contract, according to league sources.

The Suns intend to keep McDonough in charge of basketball operations for at least one more season, despite the ongoing wait for the first playoff berth of his tenure.

?The Suns have missed the playoffs for a franchise-record seven consecutive seasons and sank to the league's second-worst record in 2016-17 somewhat by design in the second half of the campaign.
