After just four months, Terry Porter is no longer the head coach of the Phoenix Suns. Phoenix lost five of their last eight games before the All-Star break and they trail the Utah Jazz by one game for the final playoff spot. Assistant coach Alvin Gentry, who is popular among the Suns players, will replace Porter. 

“I’m going to wait a few days to gather my thoughts before I say anything,” Porter said.

“I think Alvin is a great players’ coach,” Suns superstar Amare Stoudamire said after the All-Star game in Phoenix. “He gets along with his players well. Of course, he’ll have a great game plan from a basketball standpoint. I think it will be somewhat up-tempo. I think Terry Porter definitely put a lot of hard work in here to try to get us on the right track and I’m pretty sure Alvin’s going to do the same.”
