Suns fire Coach Earl Watson after 0-3 start

Suns fire Coach Earl Watson after 0-3 start”

Watson was three games into his third season in Phoenix, after taking over for Jeff Hornacek 50 games into the 2015-16 National Basketball Association season.

Bledsoe played the first three years of his career with LA, averaging just 6.7 points, 2.6 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.2 steals per game in a limited 19.6 minutes per game. "We knew with a young team there was going to be adversity, but the part that's most disappointing is the lack of unity". The Suns were unwilling to include Jackson, understandable considering Irving could have easily left for nothing after playing out the two years remaining on his contract.

When it was reported that Robert Sarver would be meeting with Earl Watson today, the writing was not only on the wall, but hand-carved in stone.

Assistant coach Jay Triano will likely take over as interim head coach, presumably for the rest of the season.

This Head Coach could possibly be found in house, and certainly Triano, Tyrone Corbin, or another may be capable to pull of such a task.

As with any firing this early into a season, there appear to have been some behind-the-scenes drama between the coach and the front office.

The team is undergoing a massive rebuilding project under general manager Ryan McDonough.

The Suns are off to an 0-3 start this season, including a 48-point loss in their season opener, the worst loss in franchise history.

While the issue might very well be the team's young and inexperienced roster, Suns brass apparently thought that a coaching change already had to be made.

After losing their first three games this season, and two by a total of 90 points, the Phoenix Suns fired head coach Earl Watson on Sunday. Now it is time for Phoenix to rise.
