My thoughts? Sarver is a cancerous plague on our beloved franchise. I am glad Coach Koko is set free from this drifting tire fire.
Go Suns!

Monty Williams? WTF.. Barf. Might as well get Thunder Dan.

This is great news. The Suns can finally hire Kevin McHale or Tyrone Lue as their head coach now. #TheTimeLine

Jesus f*** Christ. This owner can't get out his own way. Monte Williams is in no way a significantly better coach than Igor.

I don’t really like this. We can’t just keep putting everything on the coach. Igor had his flaws, but he seemed to take a step forward during the 2nd half. I just think we better have a someone solid lined up.

I don’t know a lot about Monty Williams, but I’ve heard positive things about him from basketball people.

If we hire Jason Kidd....

Mark Jackson is another great option too.

Kevin McHale
Tyrone Lue
Fred Hoiberg
Tom Thibodeau
Mark Jackson

Yep, no bad choices here. It’s only sunshine and rainbows from here on out, boys.

Edit: Jason Kidd, as suggested by Split T. Great option. Fan favorite, high moral compass, left on great terms and straight shooter.

He's the HC at Nebraska now. Dodged a bullet with that one.

Monty is about as mediocre as you can get. He is your .500 level coach. He couldn’t figure out how to use AD when he was here. He would absolutely ruin Ayton by freezing him out. AD would be murdering a team then go the entire 4th quarter without touching the ball.

If the Lakers want to hire Monty, why the hell would he come to this s***-show? Hey Monty, you can get $7M annually to coach LeBron, or you can *checks how much lowest paid coach makes* make ($500K less than lowest paid coach) to work for this s***-ass garbage pile. Whaddaya say? Oh, and your starting PG will be Blake Ahearn.

What about someone with no coaching experience at all? Ronnie Price would be worth a look. Perhaps Paul Pierce too.

Monty Williams has a sub .500 record and we’re scrambling to try and get him? It’s stunning how this franchise absolutely covets mediocrity.

If they were to announce that the new practice facility will be fitted with the world’s biggest roof made completely out of cardboard I wouldn’t even blink.

In all seriousness, the suns should try James Jones as GM/Coach. He could bring a new perspective, like instead of coaching from the sidelines, he could coach under the basket so he could be closer to the action.

This is obviously Jeff Bower's doing, since Woj says they were planning on keeping Igor. I guess Bower is actually running the show now??

I was starting to lean towards being okay with Igor coming back, just for stability sake. The only reason I wouldn't mind getting rid of him was because he refused to use Ayton. So if you're right about Monty, hopefully we lose out on him to the Lakers lol. Although, .500 level coach sounds pretty great right about now. :P
