The Phoenix Suns reached agreement with president of basketball operations Lon Babby on a new two-year contract through the 2014-15 season, the team announced Tuesday.
Babby, 62, was a Washington-based lawyer specializing in sports contracts and negotiations when he was hired by the Suns in 2010 to help rebuild the franchise.
"Lon has led our front office during this important transition period for the organization and he has my full support as we continue to rebuild," Suns managing partner Robert Sarver said.
