Locked On Suns Monday: Emergency reaction to the firing of Igor Kokoskov

The Suns finally pulled the plug on the first-year head coach.

We intended to bring on Kellan Olson of Arizona Sports to discuss the biggest questions of the offseason but had to pivot as news broke during recording that the Suns had moved on from Igor Kokoskov.

We break down how and why it came to this and whether this is another signal of instability or somehow part of a bigger plan. With Monty Williams reportedly the frontrunner, we ponder whether new front office executive Jeff Bower, who hired Williams to his first head-coaching position, played a role in the decision.

Take this journey along with us.
