Suns’ Williams was named NBA Coach of the Year

PHOENIX – Monty Williams became NBA Coach of the Year after leading the Phoenix Suns to a franchise-record 64 regular-season wins, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press.

The NBA is preparing to make the announcement official later Monday, according to the person who spoke to AP on condition of anonymity because the award was not officially announced.

Phoenix All-Star Guards Chris Paul and Devin Booker both posted on social media that Williams won the award, although no official announcement was made.

Booker said on Twitter: “Phoenix Suns coach Monty Williams was voted COY of the NBA, the book states. A formal announcement is expected later today.”

Paul added: “WD WS…Congratulations, Coach Mont for Coach of the Year!” The WD WS reference is a motto for the Suns, meaning that well done is better than well said.


The Suns were by far the best team in the NBA during the regular season, finishing with eight more wins than any other team in the NBA. Williams, 50, has been the Suns coach for three seasons and the team has improved every season.

Williams led the Suns to the NBA Finals last season, where they lost to the Milwaukee Bucks in six games.
