Warriors vs. Suns: Phoenix already made the biggest news

New, comments

The Warriors face the Suns tonight at 7:30 for a game that’s probably less important than what’s going on behind the scenes.

The biggest news for tonight’s game between the Golden State Warriors and the Phoenix Suns is whatever is going on in the Suns’ front office.

Earlier today, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported that the Suns fired general manager Ryan McDonough.

And if you’re wondering why we, the citizens of DubNation, would care about this, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN offered up the insider nugget that the Suns legend and current Warriors consultant Steve Nash has no interest in taking on the job, which is made more difficult by the owner’s involvement.

Of course, it’s natural that fans would consider Nash a candidate as he has some experience working with the Warriors, but as of right now that doesn’t seem to be a reality — things could change though and perhaps it’s worth noting that it’s not clear whether the Suns have even reached out to make Nash an offer at this point.

But talking heads gonna talk...

They’re trying, Jermaine.

In other totally unrelated news that surely has no bearing on the Suns news, Luka Doncic — who was drafted fourth in the 2018 NBA Draft after the Suns, Sacramento Kings and Atlanta Hawks passed on him — looked pretty solid last night.

With the first pick of the 2018 draft — when Doncic was still available — the Suns drafted DeAndre Ayton, who we’ll probably get a look at tonight.

But that’s a rabbit hole that I’m sure Suns fans aren’t interested in going down right now.
