Both Monty Williams and the Phoenix Suns are set for a long-term partnership.
Sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN that Williams agreed to extend his contract with the club. With two years left in his deal, this new agreement gives him an extended time to stick within the franchise.
Joining the team in the 2019-2020 season, Williams’s presence and leadership are crucial in the formation of this new era of Suns basketball being led by Devin Booker and Chris Paul, compiling a 149-78 (.656) coaching record in the past three seasons.
Last year, Williams guided Phoenix to its first trip to the NBA Finals since 1993, losing against the Milwaukee Bucks in six games. Under his stellar control also, the club clinched a 64-win season this 2021-2022, a franchise record.
With this impact and winning influence, Williams was named a recipient of the Coach of the Year honors for the first time.
Phoenix’s successful regular season only went miserable at the end upon their Game 7 second-round crumble against the Dallas Mavericks last postseason.
