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.
