The Suns are down to their final game of the 18/19 season. For the 9th straight season they will miss the playoffs.
Owner Robert Sarver, known for his unconventional way of running a basketball franchise, added a new wrinkle in his search for a help in the front office. ESPN NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Sunday that Sarver included Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald as part of the interview process with candidates. The report also has on update on the leader for a front office position.
Also on Sunday, The LA Times reported that Sarver gave former Suns head coach Earl Watson two weeks notice that he was going to be fired as head coach back at the start of the 2017/2018 season.
Earl Watson says Phoenix gave him a two-week termination notice in training camp before the 2017-18 season. He knew he was going to be fired well before the 0-3 start. https://t.co/Le91nVHqzJ
