Best GM Replacements for Phoenix Suns to Breathe Life Back into Franchise

The Phoenix Suns seem to be a team in shambles, as the team's general manager, Lance Blanks, stepped down after just three seasons at the helm (per John Marshall of The Associated Press).

Under Blanks, Phoenix won fewer games in each successive year, missed the playoffs in every season and went from a team that could call itself a perennial threat to make some noise in the playoffs, to the laughing stock of the Western Conference.

After loading up on cast-offs, spare parts and amnestied players last offseason, the Suns braced themselves for their first season without Steve Nash in nearly a decade. The impending season was worse than they could have imagined.

At 25-57, the Suns recorded the fourth-worst record in the NBA and look to be a team with a long road back to recovery.

Now they're in the market for a new general manager, which means a completely new direction with the team, and at least a season or three of rebuilding.

Lucky for them, there are a handful of candidates out there who seem ready to take over the team and revamp it into a contender out West.

None of the names are sexy (they're general managers, not movie stars), but they've put in their time in the NBA front office trenches.
