The new Woj bomb brings a much-needed sigh of relief for Suns’ fans as the franchise finds a proper replacement for Monty Williams, Vogel brings a high-level defensive mentality to the offensive-loaded Suns’ roster.
The hiring of Vogel comes shortly after the firing of the former Coach of The Year Monty Wiliams, a decision that led many to ponder whether it was a panic move from the Suns’ front office to shift the blame away from management.

The Suns who are currently the bottom 3rd worst defensive team in the league will look to turn things around with Franks’ leadership and his 10-year coaching experience.
The 49-year-old coach is reportedly expected to sign a long-term deal with the Suns and will look to capture on Kevin Durant’s Prime years to seriously contend for a Championship this coming season.
