PHOENIX, AZ -- The Phoenix Suns have introduced Terry Porter as
their new coach.
The 45-year-old Porter comes to the Suns from the Detroit
Pistons, where he served as an assistant coach. His hiring ends a
monthlong search for a successor to Mike D'Antoni, who left last
month to coach the New York Knicks.
Suns general manager Steve Kerr, who was a teammate of Porter on the San Antonio Spurs, said the former point guard is a strong
leader and communicator.
Porter played guard in the NBA for 17 seasons, retiring after
the 2001-02 season.
