What about Stan Van Gundy?

"Marcin Gortat is openly lobbying for the Phoenix Suns to hire Stan Van Gundy as their next head coach on Twitter.

The Suns fired Alvin Gentry on Friday.

Gortat played for Van Gundy as a member of the Orlando Magic"

The chances of SVG coaching in the league while Stern is commissioner is nil.

What? It's not like he can tell the owner who to hire.

Gortat is quite a personality.

It would be a fools mission to take the Suns job. For one thing, it is unlikely that they are willing to pay a coach fair worth. For another thing, it is clear that the Suns refuse to pay for a contending team. Thus "Who wants to earn a chance to be a treadmill coach?"


While Scott Skiles would be an obvious choice for HC as a previously mentioned, I don't see why he would want to be part of that.


Some small part of me hopes that Herb Williams applies for the job, seems like a perfect fit. Quiet company man who will basically cause no waves and probably lead to one of the greatest tank jobs OF ALL TIME.

Suns make Lindsey Hunter the head coach.
Dan Majerle and Elston Turner both quit as assistant coaches.
Sean Rooks quits as player development coach and takes a job to be a head coach in China.

The Suns have been absolute madness as an organization ever since Steve Kerr left.
