Steve Blake hired as assistant by Suns
Former NBA guard Steve Blake has landed his first official coaching position.
Longtime basketball writer Peter Vecsey reported on Monday that the retired 13-year veteran has been hired as an assistant for the Phoenix Suns by new head coach Monty Williams.
Blake, who last played in 2016, had since been working as a coaching intern for the Portland Trail Blazers. He also previously played for Portland, where his time coincided with Williams’ tenure as a Blazers assistant.
The last we heard from Blake, he was on something of a quest for viral fame, so it’s good to see him land on his feet with a prominent gig in Phoenix.
