The NBA coaching carousel continues to spin, as former Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel was reportedly signed as head coach of the Phoenix Suns
Vogel has already started filling out his staff, including a reported return to the bench for Utah Jazz associate general manager and former Memphis Grizzlies and New York Knicks head coach David Fizdale.
Fizdale will be an assistant coach on Vogel’s staff in Phoenix, according to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
“Suns made a significant financial play for Fizdale and drew upon his history with new coach Frank Vogel and GM James Jones,” Wojnarowski wrote.
“Fizdale had taken to the front office turn in his career, but the lure of reuniting with Vogel — whom he had worked under with the Lakers — and coaching a Suns franchise with Devin Booker and Kevin Durant turned out to be too much to pass up.”
