At least that’s what ESPN reported on Saturday.
Williams, who won NBA Coach of the Year at the end of the 2021-22 season, had two more years left on his current contract. However, the formation of Phoenix would have proposed an agreement to retain its services in the long term.
Last season, the Suns topped the overall standings with a 64-18 record. They were, however, defeated in seven games in the first round of the playoffs by the Dallas Mavericks.
The previous year, Williams had led the Suns to the NBA Finals, where the Arizona club lost to the Milwaukee Bucks. The 50-year-old Williams has been the head coach of the Suns since May 2019.
