Suns Coach Fired!

Alvin Gentry has been fired as head coach of the Phoenix Suns.

The Suns have a 13-28 record as they rebuild following the departure of Steve Nash.

Gentry became interim head coach of the Suns during the 08-09 season, replacing Terry Porter.

Gentry led the Suns to the Western Conference Finals in 2010.

Elston Turner and Lindsey Hunter are candidates to become interim head coach.

Boy, the Suns are one messed up organization right now. I miss the days when they were a playoff threat. Aside from Gortat it's hard to see what assets they have. They could spend the next decade being what the Clippers were before Griffin and Paul.

Hopefully the Spurs are putting a plan in place to stay competitive after the Big Three pass on.

Gortat said on Twitter he wants Stan Van Gundy as the Suns HC.

Hunter Suns HC!

The Phoenix Suns picked player development director Lindsey Hunter as interim coach, two days after the team parted ways with Alvin Gentry.

Hunter, who played for 17 seasons in the NBA, joined the Suns in the scouting department last year and this season took over the team's new player development department.

As a guard with five NBA teams, Hunter averaged 8.5 points in 937 games, 438 as a starter. He won NBA championships with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2002 and the Detroit Pistons in 2004. Hunter, 40, has no prior coaching experience.

He retired in 2010 and served in a player development job with Detroit before coming to Phoenix.

The team announced Hunter's promotion Sunday before its first practice since a home loss to Milwaukee on Thursday night, the Bucks' first win in Phoenix in 25 tries.

The Suns, with nine new players on their roster this season, have lost 13 of 15, including four straight at home, and at 13-28 have the worst record in the Western Conference. They don't play again until Wednesday, when they face the Kings in Sacramento. Hunter's home debut will come Thursday night against the Los Angeles Clippers, who have the West's second-best record at 32-9.
