According to Adrian Wojnarowski at YahooSports:
The confrontation happened after interim coach Lindsey Hunter’s first practice and unfolded within earshot of several Suns players in the locker room, sources said. Initially, O’Neal had expressed disappointment that his veteran stature hadn’t dictated the front office turning to him for counsel in the recent coaching change, a league source told Y! Sports. When O’Neal kept challenging Blanks, the discussion started to become an argument and ultimately a screaming match.
It was immediately unclear what precipitated the disagreement, sources said, but there has been considerable unrest within the organization. At 13-28, the Suns have the worst record in the Western Conference.
