Suns owner Robert Sarver has extended the contract of general manager Ryan McDonough through the 2019-20 season and hired longtime NBA player James Jones as vice president of basketball operations.

"I would like to thank Robert and his partners for extending my agreement with this great franchise," McDonough said in a statement.

Sarver said he's not a patient man but has decided he must show patience for this young core to develop and eventually compete with the top teams in the Western Conference.

"Congratulations to James Jones on what has been one of the most successful NBA careers a player can have," Cavs owner Dan Gilbert said in a statement.
