Report: Mark Warkentien In The Mix For Suns GM Job

While Spurs assistant GM Dennis Lindsey is seen as the front-runner in Phoenix, Suns owner Robert Sarver has interviewed another another Western Conference executive this week according to Chris Tomasson of Fanhouse.com.

A source told FanHouse that Warkentien, the Nuggets vice president of basketball operations, was granted permission to speak with the Suns, and he talked this week on the phone to Phoenix owner Robert Sarver.

The source said Warkentien’s preference is to remain with the Nuggets after his contract expires Aug. 31. But no deal has been reached on a contract extension, and Warkentien wanted to speak to the Suns.

The source said no formal interview has been set up by Phoenix with Warkentien, and it’s believed the Suns are going to take their time in searching for a replacement for Steve Kerr, who will not return when his contract expires Wednesday.
