The Phoenix Suns hired Josh Bartelstein as the team's new CEO on Saturday.

The 33-year-old Bartelstein was previously an assistant general manager with the Pistons.

Bartelstein began his career at Palace Sports and Entertainment under Arm Tellem and worked on several major projects, including the team's move to a new arena downtown.

Current president of basketball operations and general manager James Jones will continue to report directly to Mat Ishbia.
