All the Suns' players wanted Earl Watson to remain head coach

Via Adrian Wojnarowski, the Suns' young core is very excited that Watson will remain with the team.

The Suns had a rough year, but there is hope on the horizon. They have one of the most exciting and dynamic rookies in Devin Booker, they'll have a number of players returning from injury, and they have a head coach who is universally respected by the players.

From The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski:

"One of the things that stood out was this: Every single player on the roster came to us at the end of the season and said that this is the guy we want as head coach," McDonough told The Vertical in a telephone interview on Tuesday afternoon. "They said that you'd be making a mistake if you hire a different head coach. That's not something we expected to hear from [our players] back when we promoted him to interim coach in February, but Earl has shown an ability to connect and motivate our players as well as discipline and hold them accountable."

If that doesn't scream stability and trust, I'm not sure what else you'd want to hear. We are looking forward to what next season will bring!
