The Lease agreement doesn't affect the current naming rights deal which runs through 2016 (10 yr deal signed in 2006) - it just grants the Arena Manager / Team Owner the right to negotiate a new Naming Rights deal when the current one expires - including the possibility of re-upping with Jobing.
It will be awkward when the city has to license out naming rights for itself:

" Arena in, Arizona"
