Mike D’Antoni fired!

Wait, maybe not. But probably. Gahhh. My head hurts.

“There’s no truth to that,” Kerr said. “I asked Mike when the story came out, and he denied it. Mike’s our coach and has done a great job for four years.”

Asked if he wanted to return as Phoenix’s coach, D’Antoni evaded the question, saying, “We’ll sit down and talk and evaluate everything and see where we are.”

Very convincing, Mike!

Avery Johnson. Fired. Very, very fired. The Bulls could be interested in his services, though.

Flip Saunders is still gainfully employed by the Pistons and they’re about to advance to the second round of the Playoffs, but hilariously enough, everyone seems to be of the impression that he’ll soon be a goner.

Here, the local media takes a look at some of the options and rumors.
