The Phoenix Suns season has gotten off to a nightmarish start. After suffering 2 blow-out losses in their first 3 games of the season, including the most one-sided season-opening loss in NBA history and the most one-sided loss in team history, their opening night loss to Portland 124-76.
Phoenix decided to fire Earl Watson and have named Jay Triano interim coach but reports indicate that Triano is expected to remain the head coach the rest of the season.
Watson and Suns general manager Ryan McDonough have been at odds, according to ESPN and it was owner Robert Sarver who made the decision to move on from Watson at this point of the season.
Phoenix has one of the NBA’s youngest teams and is expected to be one of the league’s worst this season.
Triano was the head coach for the Toronto Raptors from 2008-2011 and also was the national team coach of Canada.
Watson leaves with a 33-85 record as coach
