Since (Lance) Blanks chose (Lindsey) Hunter as the Suns interim head coach, the general manager has been far more engaged than in his 2/1 seasons with Alvin Gentry. Blanks and Hunter meet regularly and have blunt conversations like old relatives or friends.
“It’s the way I grew up in the business,” said Blanks, who previously worked in the front offices of Cleveland and San Antonio. “Even in my last home, Cleveland, we were literally like brothers. Nobody did something without someone else knowing. It was the highest level of trust. Lindsey and I have been able to form that kind of relationship in a short amount of time.
“I learn a lot from Lance,” Hunter said. “He’s been great about working with me, picking my brain, challenging me. It’s really been a blessing to have a GM that really challenges you and pours into you. It’s a partnership and that’s the way successful relationships are.”
