I like everything about new #Suns GM Ryan McDonough but his age. At 33, he’s just a few years older than myself and way more successful.

With hiring of Boston’s McDonough, Suns direction is clear: No more stopgap short-term free agents, rebuild through multiple picks in draft.

Wish the late Will McDonough were alive to see his son Ryan take over as Phoenix Suns GM. Congratulations to McDonough family.

Don’t know much about Ryan McDonough but logic behind Suns’ hire makes sense. Now he has to be given freedom to run team.
