Scott Returning to Coach Hornets

by May 06, 2009

Byron Scott allegedly was interested in the Sacramento coaching gig, but the Kings didn’t act quick enough: “The Hornets on Thursday are expected to hold a news conference in which they will publicly support Scott and declare he will return for the final season of his contract (worth $5.5 million), meaning the Kings have only a short time to bring him their way. Yet according to numerous sources with knowledge of the situation, the Kings have not requested permission to speak with Scott and do not appear poised to do so.”
