Jeff Hornacek has been a relatively new name on the coaching radar but make no mistake, Hornacek should and could be a very legitimate candidate. Hornacek played 14 years in the NBA and spent his first five seasons as a Phoenix Sun. Hornacek was one of the most popular players in purple and orange prior to being shipped off as part of the trade that brought sir Charles to Phoenix.

Hornacek may not possess the coaching experience of a Nate McMillan or a Brian Shaw but Hornacek’s connection with the Phoenix Suns organization would make him a popular hire.
