Arizona Wildcats alum Jeff Feld named NAZ Suns GM
PRESCOTT VALLEY – The Northern Arizona Suns announced they have hired a new leader for their basketball operations department, naming Jeff Feld the team’s General Manager.
Feld becomes the fourth General Manager in NAZ Suns history. Dylan DeBusk, who served as NAZ Suns interim General Manager throughout the 2018-19 season, has been elevated to Phoenix Suns Personnel Analyst/G League Operations Manager.
Feld, 31, joins the Suns after a wealth of experience in different NBA and NBA G League front offices. He most recently spent two seasons (2016-18) as the Windy City Bulls Manager of Basketball Operations. Before that, he spent four years in the Cleveland Cavaliers front office and was a Basketball Operations Coordinator when they won the NBA Finals. That same year, he was also the Canton Charge Assistant General Manager when the team reached the NBA G League Eastern Conference Finals in 2015-16.
“We are very excited to have Jeff join the Phoenix Suns organization and lead the Northern Arizona Suns alongside head coach Bret Burchard,” DeBusk said. “Jeff’s professional experience in both the NBA and G League will be extremely valuable as we move into our fourth season in Prescott Valley. We look forward to this upcoming G League season and supporting the Phoenix Suns in the continued development of the players and staff.”
The Denver native returns to Arizona, where he worked with the University of Arizona men’s basketball team for six years, including multiple seasons under Hall of Fame coach Lute Olson and current coach Sean Miller. Feld was the Wildcats’ Video Coordinator from 2006-10, while he earned his degree in journalism. He was U of A’s Assistant Director of Basketball Operations for two years following his time as the Video Coordinator.
“I am honored and excited to be a part of the Suns’ basketball family and want to thank James Jones and Dylan DeBusk for this tremendous opportunity,” Feld said. “My family and I are thrilled to be back in Arizona and I can’t wait to get started.”
