Stein: McDonough finalist for Suns GM
If they can't persuade G-Hill to start exec career in desert, Suns expected to choose between Celts' Ryan McDonough & Bucks' Jeff Weltman— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) May 7, 2013
McDonough just completed his third season as assistant GM under Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge. McDonough assists Ainge on all basketball matters, but his focus has been on scouting college and international players for the NBA Draft.
McDonough, who started in the Celtics' film room as a special assistant to basketball operations, previously served as director of player personnel, director of international scouting, and director of amateur scouting for the team.
McDonough was the focal point of a spectacular recent profile by SB Nation.
