No games scheduled. Game 3 of the NBA finals is Tuesday at 9 p.m. in Los Angeles.
Terry Porter will be the Phoenix Suns' next coach, ending the club's monthlong search for a successor to Mike D'Antoni. Phoenix general manager Steve Kerr said Saturday he had agreed to terms with Porter, who was an assistant with the Detroit Pistons. The 45-year-old Porter played in the NBA for 17 seasons and teamed with Kerr in San Antonio.
``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. The fact that he's sat in that chair, that was a key factor. 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. Porter, a former Detroit Pistons assistant, played in the NBA for 17 seasons and teamed with Kerr in San Antonio.
