    The Clippers’ coaching search is finally underway, and one lucky head coach will have the opportunity to write themselves into the Clipper lore.

    Jun 15, 2010, 9:55 AM EDT

    Jun 11, 2010, 9:09 AM EDT

    Jun 9, 2010, 11:31 PM EDT

    Atlanta has been very deliberate in their coaching search, but they clearly liked Avery Johnson. The met with him three times, including last weekend.

  8. Dwane Casey, get to know me

    May 25, 2010, 4:08 PM EDT

    Here’s what most people reading this story know about Dwane Casey: He is a Mavericks assistant, used to be the Timberwolves head coach, and he spells his first name funny (if he coached the Heat it would be all kinds of confusing). But people should know more about Casey the coach in Minnesota, more than…

  11. Hawks apparently ready to bid against themselves for Joe Johnson

    May 16, 2010, 11:38 AM EDT

    You just knew somebody was going to make the mistake this summer of offering Joe Johnson a max deal that extends too long at five years. Didn’t expect it to be the Hawks, though.   That is what the New York Daily News is reporting the Hawks will do, adding that they want a new…

    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…
