Phoenix Suns head coach Monty Williams admits he was “bothered” that Chris Paul’s name was thrown in the trade rumors amid the Kyrie Irving drama. For one, it’s not true. And second and the most important for him, the superstar guard doesn’t deserve to be in such kind of talks.

Williams said as much in a recent conversation with reporters, noting that Paul and the Suns were simply used by other people to “get their deal done.”

“Players have wanted to come to play in Phoenix. The city. Playing with our players but I don’t think it’s fair when guys have their names thrown out there. Kind of bothers me cause Chris, his name should never be thrown out there in that way,” the Suns coach shared, per Duane Rankin of AZ Central.
