Suns get permission to talk with Lindsey


With Steve Kerr soon leaving the Phoenix Suns’ position as General Manager, the Suns have been granted permission (per ESPN’s Ric Bucher) to speak with Spurs’ current assistant general manager Dennis Lindsey to replace Kerr once he leaves.

The Phoenix Suns have been granted permission to talk to San Antonio Spurs assistant general manager Dennis Lindsey about being their next GM on the condition they wait until after Thursday’s draft, league sources said Tuesday.

It seems the Suns really want to be like the Spurs. This wouldn’t be the first time, the Suns dipped into the Spurs organization. Aside from Kerr, they also hired former Spurs’ assistant coach, Alvin Gentry as their head coach.

I guess imitation is the best form of flattery.
