Phoenix has said goodbye to manager Monty Williams.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ‘ESPN’ reported on the 14th (Korean time) the news of the resignation of manager Monty Williams. The partnership between Phoenix and Williams came to an end after four seasons.
During this season, Phoenix acquired Kevin Durant in a trade and went all-in for the championship. In the process of recruiting Durant, many prospective resources that Phoenix had cherished, such as Cam Johnson and Mikal Bridges, had to leave the team. It was Phoenix who bet everything on winning this season.
However, Phoenix’s challenge ended in failure. Their season came to an end when they met Denver in the second round of the playoffs and were eliminated in six games.안전놀이터
Williams took the helm of Phoenix for the first time during the 2019-20 season. In the 2020-21 season, the second year of his appointment, he led the team to the finals, but unfortunately could not lift the championship cup. In the 2021-22 season, he recorded 64 wins and 18 losses in the regular season, setting a new record for the club’s highest win rate, but in the playoffs, he met Dallas in the second round and was eliminated.
After repeated failures in the playoffs like this, Phoenix eventually parted ways with manager Williams. Coach Williams went 194-115 with a 62.8% winning percentage over four seasons with Phoenix.
