Flip Saunders a Candidate in Phoenix?


Latest word is that the Phoenix Suns are expected to at least talk to ex-Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders, fired this week by the Detroit Pistons, about their vacant coaching job. It’s unlikely Suns owner Jerry Colangelo, though, would be willing to guarantee Saunders a $20 million, four-year contract. Saunders is guaranteed the final year of his contract, $5.5 million, by Detroit next season. [TwinCities.com]
