Phoenix Suns Fire Coach Monty Williams

According to sources, the Phoenix Suns have fired coach Monty Williams. Williams had been with the team for four seasons and had a record of 194-115. He was named NBA Coach of the Year last season after the Suns won 64 games. In 2021, Williams led the team to its first NBA Finals appearance in almost 20 years.

Team’s Performance in Playoffs

In recent seasons, the Suns have failed to advance past the second round of the playoffs. New owner Mat Ishbia made the decision to fire Williams two days after the Suns lost in the Western Conference semifinals to the Denver Nuggets in six games. The team suffered injuries to key players Chris Paul and Deandre Ayton during the playoffs.

Williams Takes Responsibility for Defeat

After the loss to the Denver Nuggets, Williams took responsibility for the defeat and acknowledged that he had to take a deeper look at everything he was doing. The Suns suffered a 125-100 loss, which was their second blowout loss in an elimination game in as many years.

Phoenix Begins Search for Replacement

With the dismissal of Williams, the Phoenix Suns will begin the search for a new head coach. They will be competing with the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks, who are also in search of a new head coach. The Suns will be looking for a coach who can lead them to success in the playoffs and bring home a championship.
