NBA 2018-19: Predicting the 5 best new head coaches
#4 Igor Kokoskov
All the signs from the offseason, preseason and Summer League play point to the Suns making a playoff push this season. If so, they have done well in nabbing one of the best coaches across the league in Igor Kokoskov.
In case you missed it, Kokoskov was the head coach of the Slovenian national team that won gold at the 2017 FIBA Eurobasket tournament, beating a number of much more heralded and fancied teams on the way, including Kristaps Porzingis' Latvia.
Kokoskov faces an unenviable task right now, but with the Suns still being largely in the works in terms of forming a core for the long term, there will be little pressure on his shoulders to give the Suns results right off the bat. Expect them to be better than dead last in both offensive and defensive efficiency unlike last season, though.
