According to several reports, the struggling Phoenix Suns have fired assistant coaches Mike Longabardi and Jerry Sichting, and league sources say head coach Jeff Hornacek’s job may also be in jeopardy.
Wojnarowski says the dismissals were opposed by Hornacek, according to league sources, but he has decided to stay on the job.
ESPN’s Marc Stein reported that the Suns are promoting longtime NBA guard Earl Watson and former NBA D-League head coach Nate Bjorkgren to the bench to work closer to Hornacek.
The Suns have lost 10 of their last 15 games, including an embarrassing 111-104 defeat by the 2-30 Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.
