NBA News – Phoenix Suns

Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns - Game Seven Phoenix Suns, coach Monty Williams Agree to Extension – When Monty Williams took over as head coach of the Phoenix Suns, they were in the middle of a decade-long lottery streak. Almost overnight, he managed to turn them into one of the NBA’s very best teams. His debut season ended with an undefeated run in the Orlando bubble. He followed that up with a trip to the NBA Finals in 2021, and last season, he won Coach of the year as his Suns won 64 games before losing in the second round to the Dallas Mavericks. In three years on the job, he’s done everything short of winning a championship. And now, the Suns are recognizing that. On Saturday, Williams agreed to a long-term contract extension to remain in Phoenix, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Williams had initially signed a five-year deal to join the Suns, rare among new hires, and therefore had two years left. This new deal will add several to that arrangement and will presumably make him one of the NBA’s highest-paid coaches. Read more at:  (Sam Quinn/CBS NBA)
