Will Lindsey Hunter Remain as Suns Coach?
On Thursday, (Ryan) McDonough spoke on his new role as the Suns general manager, wearing an orange tie that he just had been given.
Despite unfamiliar surroundings, McDonough, 33, was convincing of his comfort with the role and his vision, though that vision was not fully disclosed.
McDonough was already on task, starting with selecting a head coach. KTAR-AM (620) reported a candidate list of assistant coaches Mike Budenholzer (San Antonio), Brian Shaw (Indiana), Kelvin Sampson (Houston) and Quin Snyder (CSKA Moscow). McDonough brought a list of 10 candidates to consider and said several matched up with the Suns’ previous list.
He said interim head coach Lindsey Hunter remains “one of the top guys.”
