Kerr confirms that he’ll be Suns GM

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) – Steve Kerr confirmed Saturday night that
he’ll leave his post as an NBA analyst for TNT and will become the general
manager of the Phoenix Suns.

Kerr made the comments Saturday night as the Cleveland Cavaliers hosted the
Detroit Pistons in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.

Kerr will replace Mike D’Antoni, who will concentrate on his coaching duties
with the club.

Kerr, a partner in Suns Managing Partner Robert Sarver’s 2004 purchase of the
franchise, will complete his duties with TNT for the Eastern Conference
finals before the Suns make an announcement in the upcoming week.

A former University of Arizona star and Suns player, Kerr won five NBA
championships with Chicago and San Antonio and has worked as a TNT analyst
since 2003.
