Suns had planned to bring Kokoskov back for a second season, especially after the team’s stronger play in late stages of the season. Kokoskov has been a well-respected tactician who becomes another victim of the constant turnover in Phoenix.

Earlier this month, the Suns promoted James Jones to vice president of basketball operations. Former Suns GM Ryan McDonough and Jones hired Kokoskov last May away from his assistant coaching position with the Utah Jazz, but McDonough was dismissed nine days before the season began.

The Suns have not won more than 24 games over the past four years will be looking to hire their fifth head coach in the last five seasons. Kokoskov is only the franchise 19th coach, but he whoever replaces him will be the seventh in the previous ten years.

The news of  Kokoskov firing was announced while TNT’s Inside The NBA was in session and it’s host Ernie Johnson made Charles Barkley aware of it and Shaquille O’Neal said you know what I think Chuck?  I think you should be President of Basketball of Operations.

“I’m not jumping into a dumpster fire and no I’m not taking that dumpster fire job (President of Basketball Operation), says Charles Barkley.

Barkley was a member of the Phoenix Suns from 1991 to 1995. During that time he won the MVP award and helped lead the Suns to the NBA Finals in 1993, but would lose to Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls. Barkley was an 11-time All-Star during his career and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006.
