Former Phoenix Suns Head Coach Alvin Gentry has emerged as a candidate to replace Vinny Del Negro, whose contract was not renewed by the Los Angeles Clippers last week. Former New Jersey Nets, New Orleans Hornets and Cleveland Cavaliers Head Coach Byron Scott also is considered a top candidate for the Clippers, in part due to his strong relationship with Chris Paul. Ditto for Golden State Warriors assistant Michael Malone, who was with Paul as an assistant in New Orleans under Monty Williams.
Before fully opening their search, however, the Clippers are said to be “going for big names first,” according to a person with knowledge of their plan. Those include Jeff and Stan Van Gundy, Indiana Pacers assistant Brian Shaw and Memphis Grizzlies Head Coach Lionel Hollins, the person said.
