Suns sign former Knicks coach

The Phoenix Suns are hiring Jazz associate GM David Fizdale as an assistant coach. The Suns made a significant financial play for Fizdale and drew upon his history with new coach Frank Vogel and GM James Jones. Fizdale is a former HC with Knicks and Grizzlies.

Fizdale had taken to the front office turn in his career, but the lure of reuniting with Vogel – whom he had worked under with Lakers – and coaching a Suns franchise with Devin Booker and Kevin Durant turned out to be too much to pass up.
