Chat With Suns GM Steve Kerr


A sharpshooter with a knack for capturing NBA Championships throughout his 15-year playing career, new Suns General Manager Steve Kerr is now looking to bring Phoenix its first title in franchise history.

The former Arizona Wildcat jumped right into the fire, officially joining the Suns' front office on June 6, just three weeks before the 2007 NBA Draft. Since making his way back to the desert, Kerr has spent time analyzing his new roster, overseeing a number of pre-draft workouts, watching video of draft prospects, and fielding calls about potential trades.

Prior to his new position with the Suns, Kerr spent four years in the broadcast booth with TNT, working alongside colleagues, including Marv Albert, Doug Collins and Reggie Miller.

As a player, he helped the Chicago Bulls and San Antonio Spurs to a total of four-straight NBA Championships, capturing his fifth and final title with the Spurs before retiring in 2003.

Throughout his playing career, Kerr has had the opportunity to learn from some of the best, including Arizona's Lute Olson, Chicago's Phil Jackson and San Antonio's Gregg Popovich.
