PHOENIX (AP) — The Phoenix Suns have picked player development director Lindsey Hunter as interim coach, two days after the team parted ways with Alvin Gentry.

Hunter played for 17 seasons in the NBA. He joined the Suns in the scouting department last year and this season took over the team's new player development department.

As a guard with five NBA teams, Hunter averaged 8.5 points in 937 games, 438 as a starter.

The Suns have lost 13 of 15, including four straight at home, and at 13-28 have the worst record in the Western Conference. They don't play again until Wednesday, when they face the Kings in Sacramento.
