Former Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale visits practice

A Dwyane Wade favorite is getting his interview with Knicks

In their search for a head coach, the Phoenix Suns are prioritizing coaches with National Basketball Association success, according to 98.7 FM Arizona's Sports Station's John Gambadoro. Fizdale told the press that he has a pair of interviews lined up in the coming week: One is with the New York Knicks, the other is with the Phoenix Suns.

Fizdale entered the National Basketball Association as as assistant with the Golden State Warriors in 2003 before joining the Atlanta Hawks in the same capacity.

Fizdale previously served as head coach of the Memphis Grizzlies during the 2016-17 season, where they made the playoffs before falling to the San Antonio Spurs in the first round.

With the Heat, Fizdale was a part of two NBA Championship-winning teams in 2012 and 2013. That made it a surprise when 19 games into this season, he was sacked after a 7-12 start.

The Knicks job became available on Thursday upon the firing of Jeff Hornacek, while the Suns are looking for a permanent head coach after the firing of Earl Watson early into the season.

Fizdale is also expected to be brought in by the Charlotte Hornets, who fired Steve Clifford last week, to interview for their vacancy.
