Sources: Suns dismiss Williams after 4 seasons

The Phoenix Suns have dismissed coach Monty Williams, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Saturday night.

Williams had a 194-115 record in four seasons with the Suns and won the NBA’s Coach of the Year award in 2022.

New Suns owner Mat Ishbia made the decision to fire Williams two days after the Suns lost in the Western Conference semifinals to the Denver Nuggets in six games.

The early postseason exit follows a blockbuster trade for Kevin Durant at the trade deadline in February. However an ankle sprain sidelined Durant for all but eight games before the postseason began.

Phoenix will be competing with the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks as they begin their search for a new head coach.
