AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -Terry Porter is expected to be interviewed for a second time by the Phoenix Suns later this week.
Porter joined Detroit Pistons coaches and players at their practice facility on Sunday, the day after the Boston Celtics eliminated them in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.
The Suns have been searching for a head coach since Mike D'Antoni resigned to lead the New York Knicks. Candidates include Porter, Houston Rockets assistant Elston Turner and former NBA player and TV analyst Mark Jackson.
Porter was Flip Saunders' lead assistant in Detroit the past two seasons. He led the Milwaukee Bucks' from 2003-05, helping them win 41 games and earn a spot in the 2004 playoffs. His coaching career started as a Sacramento Kings assistant in 2002.
Suns general manager Steve Kerr was one of Porter's teammates during his 17-year career with Portland, Minnesota, Miami and San Antonio.
