Suns coach Monty Williams is expected to be named Coach of the Year later today, per star Devin Booker (via Twitter), who amusingly says “book tells sources.”
Shams Charania of The Athletic confirmed the news a few minutes later, noting that Williams led the Suns to an NBA- and franchise-best 64-18 record in 2021/22. Phoenix led the NBA in net rating at +7.5 and held the No. 5 offense and No. 3 defense during the regular season.
