Report: Steve Nash not interested in Suns’ front office role
The Phoenix Suns suddenly have an open general manager job, but don’t count on Steve Nash to be the one to fill it.
Nash, a Suns icon and favorite of owner Robert Sarver, reportedly doesn’t want to deal with the day-to-day stresses of running an organization, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Suns legend Steve Nash — a Sarver favorite — continues to have no interest in pursuing the demands of the day-to-day duties of running a front office, league sources tell ESPN. He works as consultant with the Warriors now.

The Suns abruptly fired GM Ryan McDonough on Monday just nine days before the start of the season. Nash, while a nice thought, doesn’t appear to be on the table. Sarver is a heavily involved owner, so getting someone who can work with him will be vital to Phoenix’s success going forward.
