New Suns head coach Monty Williams and free-agent-to-be Kevin Durant know each other very well. Williams was an assistant with the Oklahoma City Thunder in Durant’s final season with OKC in 2015-2016. Friday, Durant was asked about Williams being hired by Phoenix. “He knows how to talk to people, for one. He knows how to communicate and he’s honest, that’s lacking in our world in general. It’s just truth. Especially when you’re talking to him on the basketball court, you have a group of guys that will get better. He has a young core that is hungry to get better and is hungry to have some success.” Here’s more from Durant on the Williams hire by the Suns.
