Deandre Ayton praised head coach Monty Williams at Suns media availability in Milwaukee today.

Williams’ uplifting coaching style has worked tremendously with his Phoenix group this season, as the team is just 2 wins away from an NBA title.

(Via NBA):

“That’s Monty every second every day, just making sure he uplifts his players, and he’s instilling wisdom into us. Monty means a lot. He’s a real coach who I can go to and he’s more than a coach, as well. I can go to him with anything and he will be legit with me.”
