    May 17, 2010, 9:06 AM EDT

    The preliminaries are over — the Philadelphia 76ers are getting serious about a new coach now. They did their due diligence and interviewed virtually everybody living east of the Mississippi River. Then they flew to Phoenix and interviewed Doug Collins. Now that the team brass has enough frequent flier miles for that vacation to Hawaii,…

  2. Can the Nets make a splashy coach hire?

    May 14, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov wants to make an entrance. The new New Jersey Nets owner will as the tallest representative at the draft lottery next Tuesday (well, unless the Clippers decide to send Chris Kaman, which has the potential for high comedy, so I hope they do). But he also reportedly wants to make a coaching splash…

  3. Nets start coaching search with Avery Johnson

    May 13, 2010, 8:24 AM EDT

    Nets president Rod Thorn has been waiting. The Nets need a coach, ideally before the draft, to start setting the new direction for the team.

  4. Nets wisely waiting until after the lottery to sign their next head coach

    May 12, 2010, 12:53 PM EDT

    Though I’m sure all of the ’08-’09 Nets are eager to erase any and all semblances of the nightmare season that was, they’ll have to wait just a bit longer before the new coaching regime can officially begin. According to Al Iannazzone of NorthJersey.com, Rod Thorn hasn’t even spoken to the coaching candidates already with…

  5. Bulls new coach: playoff experience required. Apply within.

    May 10, 2010, 12:57 PM EDT

    The Bulls are taking their time with their coaching search — which is a smart thing. More than any other franchise out there looking right now, Chicago has the sexy foundation and chance to draw a top free agent that could bring coaches out of the woodwork. No need to rush and interview all the…

  6. Hornets are not waiting in coaching search

    May 7, 2010, 9:39 AM EDT

    There are a lot of teams looking for a head coach for next season, and most are taking their time. Chicago Bulls staff said as much, while the Los Angeles Clippers have been stone silent. Not the New Orleans Hornets. They are on it. Five interviews in three days, including two more on Thursday, according…

  7. Mark Jackson, Monty Williams – come on down. You're the next contestants on coach the Sixers

    The two big guns have sat down with Sixers management — broadcaster and former coach Doug Collins, plus former Mavericks coach and current studio analyst for ESPN Avery Johnson. Now for the second wave, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. The 76ers have completed two formal interviews for their coaching vacancy, meeting with Doug Collins and…

  8. Have the Hornets interviewed you yet? They're interviewing everybody else.

    May 4, 2010, 10:56 AM EDT

    New Orleans is leaving no stone unturned in their search for a new coach who can keep Chris Paul from bolting town in 2012. That is job number one, don’t forget. Two seasons may seem like a long time away to worry about such things, but two more seasons like this last one will have…

  10. Avery Johnson will likely be coaching somewhere next year

    May 2, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

    Unraveling the truth about Avery Johnson’s coaching ability is a tricky gig. He’s 194-70 all time, which is pretty amazing. He’s also known for two of the most disappointing postseasons in NBA history, failing to cash in twice on the Mavericks when they were the best team in the league, even being ejected in the…

    Apr 22, 2010, 4:42 PM EDT

    The New Orleans Hornets are on it, they are knee deep in the search for a new coach. Because you want to make that decision before the draft, to get your new man involved in the scouting and drafting of a player for his system. You don’t just want it to drag out (Clippers, I’m…
