Williams, 47, will stay with Philadelphia throughout their playoff run before joining the Suns. He was formerly a head coach in New Orleans from 2010-2015, compiling a 173-221 record five seasons. He also has experience as an assistant in Portland and Oklahoma City.
The Suns finished this season with a 19-63 record, but have some intriguing young players to work with in DeAndre Ayton and Devin Booker.
