Report: Tom Thibodeau more interested in Nets job


Tom Thibodeau has a bird in the hand — an offer from the New Orleans Hornets. They want an answer.

But the New Jersey Nets have expressed interest, and that has led to a dilemma for Thibodeau, according to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated (via twitter).

Multiple sources have told SI that Thibodeau is more interested in New Jersey (and to a lesser extent, Chicago) than New Orleans.

The Nets, sources say, have a mutual interest in Thibodeau but have not identified him as their top candidate as of yet

Friends of Thibodeau are not surprised that Thibs is stretching this process out. He has often had difficulty making this type of decision

Is the bird in the hand worth a Russian billionaire in the bush?

Bradley Beal drives around, dunks over Kristaps Porzingis (VIDEO)

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
