Joe Prunty is joining the Suns staff as their new lead assistant.
Prunty had some initial success as the interim head coach in Milwaukee but the team faded somewhat down the stretch and was bounced in the first round. It was never expected that he'd stick with the Bucks though he interviewed for the head job, and now he'll go back to being a head assistant. Prunty does get credit for overseeing an effective offense that didn't have the benefit of floor spacing, so perhaps he'll be able to help Igor Kokoskov and the Suns ramp up their efficacy in that department.
