Monty Williams will be the 20th Head Coach in Phoenix Suns history, the team announced on Friday.
Williams was also in contention for the Los Angeles Lakers Head Coach opening, having interviewed with them.
General Manager James Jones praised Monty in the team press release.
“I am thrilled to welcome Monty Williams to the Suns family as our next head coach,” said Suns General Manager James Jones. “Monty brings a wealth of NBA experience, both as a coach and former player, in addition to being a high-character individual who will infuse basketball wisdom and life lessons into our locker room. Monty is well respected for his coaching pedigree, leadership and commitment to the community, all of which make him the ideal person to lead our team moving forward.”
Many people think this was a great hire for the Suns but it still raises questions.
Does Monty choosing the stank of Robert Sarver with the Phoenix Suns over the legendary Lebron James and the bright lights of Los Angeles mean the tide is changing for the Phoenix Suns?
Will Monty Williams be given time to grow with the Suns young core?
Will Monty Williams be able to coexist with Robert Sarver?
The Suns will need to answer these questions in short order if they want to keep any more fans from leaving the franchise.
