An Early Look at the Coaching Carousel

Sneak peek at the madness ahead: “Multiple sources say the Kings have all but eliminated the possibility of retaining interim coach Kenny Natt and have targeted Eddie Jordan to replace him….European coaches – Ettore Messina and David Blatt – also have been mentioned as possibilities, but multiple league sources say the Kings are locked on Jordan…Washington Wizards: Saunders is the runaway favorite for the Wizards, who are determined to hire a winning, veteran coach for a win-now team. Johnson could be considered, but several sources say that Saunders is all but assured of a swift hiring once the regular season is done.”

    Jordan is the real prize of the crop. Don’t be surprised if Frank gets added to the mix in the offseason either.

    I’ve never understood the Silas drumbeat. Both Jordan and Saunders would be great hires.

    If those two get hired, I wonder where that leaves Minny?

    Silas had decent success in Charlotte and did all right with Bron.
    I think it’s weird that he can’t get a call from anyone. Nobody? Just strange. Avery needs to get a job as well.

    tom thibodeau’s defensive scheme could possibly turn the wizards around as well, but flips solid too

  • wilz

    jvg’s too good in the booth, keep him off the sideline at least a little bit longer
