``He's got a great combination of leadership skills. He's a great communicator. And his coaching experience, two years as a head coach, is important to me.

He's very tough-minded.'' - Phoenix general manager Steve Kerr on Terry Porter, who agreed to terms to become the Suns' next coach on Saturday.
