Hoops Links: Bradley, Bucks, Bobcats, Bulls

Yesterday, the Suns announced that they have decided to part ways with coach Alvin Gentry.  Phoenix owns the worst record in the Western Conference at 13-28 and team president Lon Babby says that he expected considerably more out of the club in 2012/13.  "I think we gave him a team that was better than the way they were playing," Babby said. "But I don't put that all on him. I don't even put the lion's share on him. That's not what this is about. It's not about winning enough games." 

While Babby exonerated Gentry from much of the finger pointing, he says point blank that he believes that his team is capable of achieving more as assembled.  That's an interesting take, considering that many NBA scribes predicted that the Suns would finish the year in the league cellar.  The Suns made a splash over the summer when they signed unrestricted free agent Goran Dragic, but their second-biggest signing in the post-Steve Nash era was troubled forward Michael Beasley.  So far, that three-year, $18MM pact has yielded them 9.4 PPG, 3.6 RPG, and a 10.08 PER, good for 50th amongst small forwards.  Gentry might not have been the right man for the job, but it's important to remember that he's wasn't the man in charge of filling out the roster.  The next time the ax swings in Phoenix, it won't land on the bench.
