(AP) — Phoenix Suns president and chief executive Rick Welts says he will leave the NBA team Sept. 15.

Welts and Suns owner Robert Sarver announced the change Friday. In a news release issued by the team, Sarver says the Suns' business organization will report to general counsel Jason Rowley as the team launches a national search for the position of president.

Lon Babby remains the Suns president of basketball operations.

Welts joined the Suns in 2002 as president and had the additional title of CEO the past two seasons. Rowley came to the Suns in 2008 as general counsel.
