The Phoenix Suns announced Friday that Cartwright, the former Bulls' head coach, has been signed as the lead assistant under Terry Porter. Suns' GM Steve Kerr said having someone who can look Shaq in the eye is helpful. Pat Sullivan joined the Pistons last week. The Nets currently have two assistants under contract.
