  • Suns players supportive of decision to name Lindsey Hunter interim head coach

    At 13-28, the Phoenix Suns sit in last place in the Western Conference and are a far cry from the team they were at this point last season. Although the team is clearly closer to a top 3 pick in June’s draft than playoff contention, one thing is for certain: the players support the front […]

  • Suns GM Lance Blanks: Lindsey Hunter ‘gives us a jolt’

    At age 42, Lindsey Hunter has no experience as a head coach at any level.

While the Suns front office had plenty of veteran options in assistant coaches Elston Turner, Dan […]

  • Suns’ Babby on Gentry decision: We were not progressing

    No one in the Phoenix Suns organization is saying Alvin Gentry is not a good basketball coach. Gentry compiled a 158-144 record over parts of five seasons as the team’s head coach, and reached the Western Conference Finals in 2010. Yet, the team missed the playoffs in each of the last two seasons, and has […]
  • Former Suns GM Kerr ‘relieved’ for Alvin Gentry

    The reaction to the Suns’ decision to part with head coach Alvin Gentry has been mostly negative, as it seems fans attribute the the team’s 13-28 record more to the talent the front office assembled than the guy in charge of making it work. That’s not exactly inaccurate. Still, as far as former Suns GM […]
  • Phoenix Suns do not have replacement for Alvin Gentry lined up

    That the Phoenix Suns and Alvin Gentry decided to part ways Friday is not exactly a surprise. The Suns, with a record of 13-28, had the worst record in the NBA’s Western Conference.

  • Alvin Gentry gone, but he wasn’t the problem

    At the midway point of the 2012-13 season, the Phoenix Suns are 13-28, bad enough to be the worst team in the Western Conference.

  • A crazy 24 hours in Arizona sports history

    To say the last day or so has been a crazy one for Arizona sports would be a bit of an understatement.

[…]

  • Suns try to extend mastery over Bucks in Phoenix

    The last time the Milwaukee Bucks won a game in Phoenix, their starting lineup consisted of Sidney Moncrief, Paul Pressey, Jack Sikma, Terry Cummings and John Lucas. Walter Davis led the Suns in scoring that night with 27 points and Alvan Adams came off the bench to contribute 12, but it wasn’t enough as Milwaukee, […]
  • Lon Babby: Suns’ good draft pick isn’t going anywhere

    Phoenix Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby said the goal all along has been to be a competitive team.

  • Suns on the verge of ‘youth movement’

    The Phoenix Suns find themselves in a tough spot. After Monday’s loss to Oklahoma City, Phoenix is 13-27 — the second-worst record in the Western Conference and fifth-worst in the league.
