Phoenix Suns Name Lindsey Hunter Interim Head Coach

After ousting Alvin Gentry Friday afternoon, the Suns have named a (temporary) successor—assistant coach Lindsey Hunter. Via NBA.com: “The Phoenix Suns have named former NBA player and Suns Player Development Coordinator Lindsey Hunter the club’s interim head coach, the team announced today. A 17-year NBA veteran as a player, Hunter retired following the 2009-10 season after a successful career with Detroit (1993-00, 2003-08), Milwaukee (2000-01), the LA Lakers (2001-02), Toronto (2002-03) and Chicago (2008-10). A two-time NBA champion with the Lakers (2001-02) and Pistons (2003-04), Hunter’s teams made 12 playoff appearances in 17 seasons overall. Originally selected with the 10th overall pick of 1993 NBA Draft, the 6-2, 195-pound former guard averaged 8.5 points, 2.7 assists and 1.2 steals in 937 career games (438 starts).”

    I thought he was still with the Bulls coaching staff..what the heck.

    He’s going to be a good coach.

    lindsey hunter was one of the league’s best on ball defenders as far as picking up full court, Avery Bradley is like the 2010 version

    its not as temporary as u guys think. Suns management was always high on him and considered him next in like for coaching honors after Gentry is done (which was expected to be at the end of this season). So hunter is just getting the job a little sooner than expected

    remember, this is gonna be your winning team; get a 7 footer somewhere ,& donot have a beanch team, have a second team. have them play half quarter each demanding all the energy,since there gonna rest for the other half. start with ; brown, jonhson,beasley,drag,0neal.
