Jerry Sichting to leave Wizards for Suns, according to report

Jerry Sichting, who served as an assistant for Randy Wittman's for just one year, is leaving to join Jeff Hornacek's staff in Phoenix, according to this report:

Sichting did a lot of work with the Wizards' big man, replacing Gene Banks in that role.

It'll be interesting to see if the Wizards commit to finding a replacement. Washington already has Don Newman, Sam Cassell, Ryan Saunders and Don Zierden on staff, but a coach that specializes in big men would be a good addition.

UPDATE: My apologies, I got some bad info. It's Newman that spends most of his time working with the big men, not Sichting.
