The Suns turned to a former player after one of the worst seasons in franchise history, officially hiring Jeff Hornacek as their new coach Tuesday.
The Phoenix Suns need toughness, especially on the front line. Markieff Morris says he's just the man to provide it.
Lon Babby's first priority after being named president of basketball operations for the Phoenix Suns was to find a top-level talent assessor.
"He has a maturity that is rare for a young man his age," Blanks said. "I think we saw that during the college season and we saw that on the visits and in the workouts."
"This gives us an opportunity to lay our imprint on this organization and this team," Blanks said, "a pick that reflects who we are and what we want to be about."
