Sources: Suns finalizing deal to hire Frank Vogel as coach

The Phoenix Suns are finalizing a deal to hire Frank Vogel as coach, sources told ESPN on Friday.

The Suns offered Vogel the job on Friday morning, and are expected to complete terms on a long-term deal that'll deliver him the chance to coach All-NBA stars Devin Booker and Kevin Durant, sources said.

Vogel emerged out of a finalist group that included former Philadelphia 76ers coach Doc Rivers and Suns assistant Kevin Young, sources said. Vogel comes with a 2020 NBA championship from the Lakers, and a history of constructing elite NBA defenses.
