General Manager Ryan McDonough said Wednesday that Phoenix will conduct a “wide-ranging” coaching search that will include Triano, NBA coaches – both former head coaches and current assistant coaches – and possibly college head coaches. McDonough said that following the initial round of interviews the candidate list will be whittled down and “two or three” coaches will get more in-depth interviews before a decision is made.

McDonough said he expects to reach out to potential candidates sometime later this month or early April. He and Vice President of Basketball Operations James Jones will conduct the search, but McDonough said he’ll also receive player input and that Managing General Partner Robert Sarver will be involved as “much or as little as he wants.”
