    Suns extend contract of NBA’s Coach of the Year Williams

    PHOENIX (AP) – The Phoenix Suns have agreed to a multi-year contract extension for Monty Williams, the NBA’s Coach of the Year last season after leading the franchise to a team-record 64 wins in the regular season.

    The team announced the extension on Wednesday. No other contract details were given.

    Williams, 50, has led a quick turnaround in three seasons with the Suns, taking them to the NBA Finals in 2021 where they lost in six games to the Milwaukee Bucks. It was the first time the franchise had been to the Finals since 1993. They were the number one seed in the Western Conference last season, but fell in the second round to the Dallas Mavericks.

    “I’m grateful to extend my commitment to this team and to all the people who make it a special place,” Williams said in a statement.

    “Our players put in the work every day that allows us to be successful, and I’m excited to continue this.”
