HC Rumors other NBA teams -- Rockets interviewing Wes Unseld Jr and Stephen Silas
Figured we could have a thread for rumors and leaks about OTHER teams HC jobs in here. Post em when you see them.

quote:

@JDumasReports
Source tells me that Mike D’Antoni & Billy Donovan should be in Camden this week to interview with the Sixers for the head coaching job.

quote:

Daniel Greenberg
@ChiSportUpdates
The Chicago Bulls are going to narrow their list of candidates for the head coaching position to 3 by the end of this week and bring them in for final interviews.

quote:

[Pompey] MDA has emerged as the front-runner for the 76ers' head-coaching vacancy. For the past several months, the expectation was that MDA would be hired by the Pacers but sources are saying he backed away from the Pacers gig because the Sixers' interest is real.

quote:

Denver assistant Wes Unseld Jr., — architect of Nuggets defense in incredible comeback vs. LAC — made an even stronger case for Bulls’ job. Chicago’s EVP Arturas Karnisovas already thought highly of him, working with Unseld in Denver. Malone: “Wes Unseld should be a head coach.”


quote:

Shams:

As 76ers GM Elton Brand leads head coaching search, the franchise expects to bring shortlist of candidates — including Mike D’Antoni, Billy Donovan, Ty Lue — to Philadelphia area for next round of interviews.

Bulls are narrowing list of finalists for Head Coaching job and expect to conduct final interviews soon, sources say. Wes Unseld Jr, Ime Udoka, Darvin Ham, and Kenny Atkinson are among the coaching candidates that impressed in interviews

Have we been rumored to have met with anyone or are we still waiting on our candidates to get out of the bubble?

If the latter, we should be narrowing down our targets, right?

We have almost no rumors. We allegedly met with Lue in bubble. That’s all we know.

Still a very good possibility that all the candidates Griff wants are all still in the Bubble.

When we fired Gentry he flat out said the guys they want were in Bubble and then caught himself and "corrected" himself.

Clearly there are coaches in bubble they want to talk to in person.

And if those guys all turn you down, everyone else worth a lick has already been hired. Frankly, the longer it goes on, the more nervous I get.

Are there any rumors about the Pels HC candidates?!?! You would assume that it would be a hot gig since you have a young core of Ingram, Zion, and Ball to pair with vets like Holiday and JJ.

FYI...Pompey has hedged BIG TIME:

quote:

A league source said the job could be D’Antoni’s to lose. The source said the 69-year-old would have to bomb his interview with the Sixers owners not to be offered the job, and said D’Antoni is the candidate they want. A team source denied that, saying the ownership won’t know who it wants until candidates are interviewed.



So its his job to lose but he might not get it and they don't know. lol

Big mistake for Philly. They don't have the personnel to run MDA's system.

With that said though, JJ to Philly for Richardson and 2025 unprotected 1st

I think MDA is a pretty adaptable coach, but that roster makes NO sense for him at all.

There would need to be some relatively drastic changes.

There's actually a few tweets from last night connecting Unseld to the Bulls. Could be there guy.
