The Phoenix Suns earlier this afternoon announced the firing of general manger Lance Blanks after Blanks had served under that position since August of 2010. According to reports, Blanks and the Suns agreed to “Part ways” And that Blanks was not given the pink slip.
“Lance has been a trusted friend and colleague,” said Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby. “I thank him personally and professionally for his hard work on behalf of the Suns. We will continue to prepare for the offseason even as we look for his replacement.”
With Blanks out of the picture, Suns interim head coach Lindsey Hunter’s potential return has become that much more unlikely. It was perceived by most of the public that Blanks was Hunter’s biggest ally in the office.
In three seasons under Lance Blanks the Suns have finished 40-42, 33-33 and 25-57.
