GM: Suns should have conducted more interviews before Earl Watson hire

Phoenix Suns general manager Ryan McDonough admits that, in hindsight, he should have considered outside candidates before hiring Earl Watson as head coach.

Watson replaced Jeff Hornacek in 2015-16, going 9-24 before the Suns removed the interim tag in April without conducting an interview process to consider other candidates.

As far as the procedure goes and the process goes, yes, I think we probably should have gone through a more extensive interview process, McDonough said Wednesday on 98.7 FM Arizonas Sports Stations Burns & Gambo show. Some people said that at the time. Robert and I take and accept that criticism, and I think well learn from that going forward.

Phoenix replaced Watson with interim Jay Triano after he coached the team to a 24-58 record last season and it began 2017-18 with three losses, two by more than 40 points.
