The Phoenix Suns have hired away one of the key members of the Washington Wizards' front office. Pat Connelly, who helped spearhead the Wizards' scouting department, will be going to the Phoenix Suns to work for new GM Ryan McDonough, according to Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic.

Connelly was with the Wizards for seven seasons, serving as a scout for the first five and the director of player personnel for the last two.
