Only Chance For Continuity Gone, David Griffin Will Leave Organization

Well, it’s now official. One of the main players in the Suns front office will not be returning and with his departure goes any hope of stability. This has now become a complete house-cleaning.

David was a driving forced behind the team’s philosophy of player selection that placed a high premium on personality and character resulting in teams that were high on chemistry and fan likability.

From the Arizona Republic:

Suns Senior Vice President of Basketball Operations David Griffin won’t be selected. He told Sarver he would not be a candidate and would not stay with the organization after his contract expires in two weeks. He is not expected to return to the Suns after working for them for 18 years.

The story goes on to name other possible candidates, none of them big names or former GM’s.

This all very depressing.
