Casey, Del Negro Finalists for Clippers Job

by July 04, 2010

Not exactly elite options, but the Clippers aren’t exactly elite, either. From Adrian Wojnarowski: “Before rendering a final decision on their coaching search, the Los Angeles Clippers may invite finalists Dwane Casey and Vinny Del Negro to meet again with owner Donald Sterling and top team executives early this week, sources told Yahoo! Sports. Casey, a Dallas Mavericks assistant, and Del Negro have been advised to be ready to travel to Los Angeles for the second time in two weeks to talk further about the job. Casey was the clear favorite a week ago, but sources say that Del Negro closed the gap in meetings with Neal Olshey and Sterling and has closed the competition into a stalemate.
