Locked On Suns Tuesday: Igor Kokoskov may just be the next coach of the Suns

The latest news stacks up in a way that makes it look an awful lot like Kokoskov is in line to be named the team’s next head coach.

On today’s episode, we roamed through the latest news as the Suns move into their second round of head coaching interviews.

In an effort to fill the vacancy they created nearly eight months ago, the Suns spoke with around 12 or 13 candidates this summer, but appear to be rounding down that list. Igor Kokoskov earned an in-person interview Monday, while interim coach Jay Triano was informed the team would be moving on.

Unless James Borrego or Steve Clifford return for a second interview this week or a new name joins the mix, it appears the Suns and Kokoskov are on track to be reunited when the Jazz-Rockets second series ends.

We debated what hiring Kokoskov would mean for the franchise, and how might fans react.
