Terry Porter will be the new head coach … in Phoenix

New, comments

ESPN says it's already happened:

Multiple sources told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith that Terry Porter is the new coach of the Phoenix Suns.

Suns general manager Steve Kerr called Porter on Saturday morning to offer him the job, and Porter accepted.

A. Sherrod Blakely says it hasn't yet, but probably will:

Terry Porter may very well wind up coaching the Phoenix Suns. But a source who has had discussions with Porter today, said the Pistons assistant had yet to receive an offer from the Suns as of 3:40 EST.

When an offer comes - and there's a very good chance that it will come sometime later today - Porter is expected to accept it immediately with a press conference likely scheduled for Tuesday.

Either way, this looks like it's in the bag -- congrats to Porter.

Thanks to DBB reader Aaron for passing this along.
