Terry Porter Expected to Be Fired by Monday

The word from Arizona is that Terry Porter is set to be canned by the Suns over the weekend, becoming the first official casualty of what has thus far been an underwhelming season for the franchise.  With Shaquille O’Neal, Steve Nash and Amar’e Stoudemire all reputed to be on the trading block and Phoenix fans calling for Steve Kerr’s scalp, things aren’t looking good out in the desert right now.  Here’s hoping they find a way to steady that ship before the year becomes a write-off.

Should Terry Porter be fired or is Steve Kerr simply sacrificing a scapegoat to give off the impression of progress?  Will this have any impact on Amar’e Stoudemire’s status or will he still be moved as expected?  Let us know by dropping a comment in the box below.
