Stability may finally be heading to the front office of the Phoenix Suns, after many years of disorganization.

According to Arizona Sports 98.7 FM’s John Gambadoro, the Suns are expected to hire Jeff Bower as the team’s senior vice president of basketball operations.

Bower brings a wealth of experience with him, having served as the general manager of the then-New Orleans Hornets from 2005-2010 and then for the Detroit Pistons from 2014-2018.

Following the firing of general manager Ryan McDonough days before the start of the 2018-2019 regular season, James Jones and Trevor Bukstein took over as co-interim general managers, overseeing a Suns team that finished the season with a 19-63 record, owning the worst record in the Western Conference for the third consecutive year.

Bower, 57, turned the Hornet into a playoff contender, capped off by a franchise record 56-win season in the 2007-2008 season.

Bower also made noise in Detroit, pulling the trigger on the deals that brought in Blake Griffin and Reggie Jackson.
