Phoenix Suns new (and inexperienced) head coach, Jeff Hornacek, has added two well-known names to his staff. One is a Suns "legend" and the other a guy with a lot of time on NBA sidelines.

Phoenix sports talk radio dude and well-connected Suns leaker of non-classified franchise secrets, John Gambadoro, tweeted the following about the new additions to the Hornacek staff:

Mark West, you know very well. He played for the Suns for eight-ish seasons and finished his life in the NBA with a career average six points and five rebounds per game. West has been with the Suns since 2001 and since 2006 as the VP of Player Programs (aka Official Big Brother).

Jerry Sichting has about ten years experience as an NBA assistant coach, including last season with the Washington Wizards where he apparently worked with the Washington big men(?). He played about 10 season in the NBA as a guard where he averaged 12 points and six assists for his career.

As our own Kris Habbas pointed out, Sichting famously fought with Suns player development coach Ralph Sampson in Game 5 of the 1986 NBA Finals.
