Suns Owner Says Alvin Gentry’s Job Is Safe

Earlier today we learned that there could be a "major shakeup" on the horizon for the Suns, but it won't involve an outster of Alvin Gentry.  Owner Robert Sarver told Chris Broussard of ESPN.com that he is not considering making a coaching change.

"It's still early in the season," Sarver said via phone. "We're playing worse than our talent, and a lot of that has to do with confidence. It's up to the coaches and players to start playing better and to get that swagger back and turn things around. Things can turn quickly in this league."

The Suns have now dropped seven straight games and have the second-worst record in the Western Conference at 7-15.  After sending Steve Nash to the Lakers in a sign-and-trade, the Suns attempted to kick off their rebuilding effort with pickups of Goran Dragic, Michael Beasley, and Luis Scola in free agency.  However, the club is still lacking firepower on offense and their push to have Beasley shoot more from the perimeter has not yielded results.
