The Suns formally interviewed Lindsey Hunter for the head coach position, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Hunter was referred to as "one of the top guys" previously by GM Ryan McDonough, but it's hard to imagine the former guard getting another chance after his abysmal showing last season. McDonough hasn't set up any formal meetings with candidates, but according to Yahoo!, he has Jeff Hornacek, Quin Snyder, J.B. Bickerstaff, Kelvin Sampson and Steve Clifford on the radar.

Clarifying an earlier post, Suns GM Ryan McDonough called Lindsey Hunter "one of the top guys" in reference to the pool of coaching candidates.

This is much different than calling Hunter a "candidate." Although we still don't expect Hunter to retain his position as head coach after looking lost on the sidelines when he took over this year, it's clear McDonough hasn't slammed the door shut on that possibility completely. "The most important thing to find in our head coach is someone who is a leader," McDonough said.

New Suns general manager Ryan McDonough called Lindsey Hunter "a candidate" for the Suns' head coach position.

McDonough, speaking at his introductory presser Thursday, said finding a new coach will be his first order of business and nothing he said made us think that reports of Hunter's impending ouster are untrue. We fully expect Hunter will get a cursory interview with McDonough but will likely be let go before long so the new GM can pick his own guy.

Lindsey Hunter is "widely expected to lose his post with the Suns," according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Hunter was an embarrassment as a head coach during his time at the helm of the Suns, but Phoenix's ill-constructed roster certainly didn't do him any favors. Hunter interviewed with the Pistons on Monday, but it's not a lock he returns to the sidelines in the 2013/14 campaign.

Confirming a previous report, Lindsey Hunter will interview for the Pistons head coaching vacancy.

"It's just an interview, like any other," he said. "Hopefully, I'll continue to gain interest from other people." That isn't really sounding like a ringing endorsement about his tenure in Phoenix, but Hunter is just playing a leverage game as he looks to continue coaching next year. For what it's worth, Hunter feels he's still a "strong candidate" in Phoenix, but a new general manager might feel differently when hired.

Lindsey Hunter has asked the Suns for permission to interview for the Pistons head coaching vacancy, a source told radio host Matt Dery.

Dery is in the know when it comes to the Pistons, so we're inclined to go with this report. It's another sign that Hunter's status in Phoenix is anything but secure, especially with a new regime about to take over. However, the Pistons wouldn't be inspiring much confidence by hiring Hunter, a guy who has looked completely out of his element and over his head during his brief tenure as a head coach.

The Suns fired general manager Lance Blacks on Monday.

Blanks had one year left on his contract. He's also been the biggest advocate of interim coach Lindsey Hunter, who could be in serious trouble himself now. A source told CBS Sports' Ken Berger a decision on Hunter won't be made this week and the coaching search will likely open up once a new GM is hired. The Suns finished the season with the worst record in the Western Conference and have a serious dearth of top-level talent after Steve Nash left for the Lakers last summer.

Suns signed president of basketball operations Lon Babby to a two-year extension.

Babby is a former agent that signed on with the Suns in July of 2010. Since then, they've gone 96-126 and are in the midst of tanking the end of the season. Babby traded away Goran Dragic (before signing him back), signed Michael Beasley and gave up a first-round pick for Aaron Brooks.

The Suns will reevaluate Lindsey Hunter after the season, and he will keep his "interim" tag through the remainder of the year.

Hunter has looked way over his head at times during his brief tenure as head coach in Phoenix, and there doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to his rotation patterns. Not that we're defending him, but it's hard to get consistent production from a team when you have the Suns terrible roster. Lon Babby said there have been "positives" during Hunter's regime, and we'd imagine Alvin Gentry isn't losing sleep over the decision to mutually part ways with the franchise earlier in the year.

The Bulls waived guard Lindsey Hunter on Tuesday.

The move made room for big man Chris Richard to be signed for the rest of the season. Hunter will likely remain with the Bulls in an adimistrative capacity, signaling the end of his playing career.
Wed, Mar 3, 2010 03:44:00 AM

The Bulls will waive Lindsey Hunter sometime in the next 24 hours.

Hunter is 39 and the next step in his career is as a coach. He'll stick with the Bulls' organization in some capacity.

Veteran guard Lindsey Hunter played 22 minutes off the Bulls bench on Monday, finishing with five points, five rebounds and two assists.

Hunter was 2-of-9 from the field, though fellow backup Jannero Pargo (0-of-3 shooting, one assist in 11 minutes) wasn't any better. Neither guy has fantasy value, despite the absence of Kirk Hinrich.

The Bulls have signed 38-year-old guard Lindsey Hunter to a one-year contract for the veteran's minimum of $1.3 million.

Jannero Pargo just signed a similar deal, as the Bulls look to fortify their backcourt after the departure of Ben Gordon. Chicago's unwillingness to offer long-term contracts indicates they might trade someone (probably Kirk Hinrich) to free up cap space in 2010.

Lindsay Hunter missed Sunday's game against the Raptors with the flu.

Hunter was brought to Chicago to mentor Derrick Rose, and has no fantasy value of his own.
