03-23-2009, 12:07 PM
For the teams that will be looking for new coaches next season who are the best available candidates? We all know some of the common names floating around, but who are some lesser known candidates?

teams in need:

Suns?(Do they continue on with Gentry?)

available coaches:

Jeff Van Gundy
Avery Johnson
Mark Jackson
Eddie Jordan
Terry Porter
Mo Cheeks
Flip Saunders
Sam Mitchell

As a Sixer fan I wouldn't mind Jeff Van Gundy or Flip Saunders.

So what other coaching candidates are out there?

Any college coaches?

Who do you want your team to get?

Patrick Ewing is another possibility.

I wouldn't mind the Bulls getting Avery Johnson

03-23-2009, 12:52 PM
Red Auerbach for the Raptors

probably avery johnson is the best coach out there

What? The Kings don't need a new coach. They have the great Kenny Natt.

Why would the sixers get rid of Dileo or whatever his name is, he's done a good job.

Perhaps, but at what cost?

Suns will keep Gentry.
They are paying Porter for two more years and don't have a true identity. Unless Gentry picks up where D'Antoni left off, I don't see the Suns getting a new coach (that's been around) until 2010 at least.

Raptors: Flip or Van Gundy, most likely stay with Jay...WHY??? Cause that is what they do....BRING BACK MITCHELL!!!

i want tom thibodeau for the raptors

03-23-2009, 03:18 PM
For the Bulls I would like Avery Johnson or Tom Thibideau(wrong spelling possibly) If he would be interested in head coaching.

More shats!

Ettore Messina shoud be on the list, there is a rumor he is the top choice to coach the Raps next season.

I would also love Jeff Van gundy and Flip Saunders for the Raps.

Van Gundy fails at life

03-23-2009, 07:00 PM
Dude, Wolves have McHale. It will be championship city in a couple years

Van Gundy fails at life

imagine if basketball was like baseball, and the coaches had to wear uniforms. Can you think of anything less appealing than the Van Gundy brothers in a tank top and shorts? Oh god
