After interim coach Melvin Hunt lingered as a favorite for the permanent job, the Nuggets finally seem to have gotten their coaching search going.
Next up? Maybe Clippers assistant Mike Woodson.
Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe:
Woodson has proven himself a quality assistant coach. That and his head-coaching experience will put him in the mix for vacancies.
Then teams will investigate Woodson’s tenures with the Hawks and Knicks. They’ll find plenty of shortcomings – especially defensively, where Woodson’s reputation is stronger. But they also won’t find anything that eliminates him from consideration for the next opening.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Woodson becomes an NBA head coach again. I’d be surprised if he gets this job.
