One of the most popular Phoenix Suns players from the franchise's past will guide the team to an uncertain future. At the news conference announcing his hiring as Suns coach, Jeff Hornacek spoke at length about his readiness for the job and the influences that will guide him. "I've always felt that I've been a coach," he said. "My dad was a coach, so I've been around basketball since I was 5 years old. " Hornacek played the first six of his 14 NBA seasons with the Suns. He retired from playing, then eased into coaching, first as a shooting instructor in Utah, then since 2011 as a full-time assistant with the Jazz.

The Suns traded center Marcin Gortat for an injured replacement and a draft pick five days before their opener, leading to speculation they had essentially given up on the season to focus on restocking their roster.
