The first wave of changes within the Phoenix Suns organization is here and it is a big one.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Suns "dismissed" head coach Monty Williams, meaning the team and him have reportedly parted ways.
The news dropped on a Saturday night, but NBA fans, who are still reeling from Game 6 of the Nuggets-Suns game on Thursday, had plenty to say.
