Williams is still now an assistant coach with the Philadelphia 76ers, who are playing the Toronto Raptors in the second round.

The Suns announced Friday that they had come to terms with Williams, who will join Phoenix after the 76ers complete their run in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

Williams becomes the Suns' fifth head coach since 2016. "Monty is well respected for his coaching pedigree, leadership and commitment to the community, all of which make him the ideal person to lead our team moving forward".

Williams, who coached the New Orleans Hornets/Pelicans from 2010-15, is now serving as an assistant coach with the Philadelphia 76ers.

However, Mr Nadler told reporters he believed that Mr Barr was afraid to testify on Thursday given "how dishonest he has been". Mueller urged Barr twice to release the executive summaries and redacted report that Mueller and his team prepared for Barr.


The 76ers have had a very successful season with a very talented roster, and that has certainly helped Williams' coaching stock rise. He also had stints as an assistant coach with the Portland Trail Blazers and Oklahoma City Thunder.

Williams, 47, is the Suns' seventh coach in an eight-season span.

Williams' decision to go to Phoenix seemingly leaves the door open for Ty Lue to take the Lakers job and reunite with LeBron James, with whom he went to three straight NBA Finals and won an NBA Championship.

The Suns went 24-58, and after Phoenix lost its first three games of the following season, Watson was sacked and replaced by Jay Triano on an interim basis.

During his five seasons in New Orleans, Williams led the team to the playoffs twice - in his first season and in his last season.

Triano interviewed with several others in the 2018 offseason before the Suns hired Kokoskov.
