The Phoenix Suns fired head coach Earl Watson on Sunday night after hours of meetings at the team's headquarters and replaced him with Triano on an interim basis.

Watson had a 33-85 record as the Suns head coach over parts of three seasons.

The Knicks reached out to the Suns on Monday after it became clear Phoenix was planning to trade disgruntled guard Eric Bledsoe, reports.

The Suns are off to an 0-3 start and are allowing the most points per game in the league at this early stage of the season.

Bledsoe sent a tweet that read "Don't wanna be here". "He met with team about wanting to be traded right before season started". "This is a turning of the page", McDonough said, explaining further why Bledsoe was sent home.

The deadline for federal compliance was January 22, 2018 which the Department of Motor Vehicles would have been unable to meet. Customers are encouraged to begin gathering the required documentation as soon as possible, giving them ample time to prepare.

Watson took over the reigns as Head Coach on an interim basis in February of the 2015-16 season.

NY will have to top offers from Denver, Los Angeles (Clippers), and Milwaukee to bring Bledsoe to the Knicks.

Ramon Sessions now serves as the Knicks' starting point guard, an aged veteran with his best years behind him.

This trade partnership seems to make a lot of sense. This marks the first head coach firing in the National Basketball Association since 2016. Since then, several teams around the National Basketball Association have called the Cavs' front office with inquiries about its availability. While both players have two years remaining on their contracts, it's unclear if they'll be able to co-exist. However, it certainly sounds like they are listening to offers.

Eric Bledsoe has been voicing his displeasure with the Suns for a while now. The Suns would get a player two years removed from averaging 17.5 ppg, one who was also a top lottery pick just three years ago. The organization is focused on their youth movement, as they've stockpiled young talents like Devin Booker, Josh Jackson, Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender over the last few years.
