SVG: Ewing Ready for Head Coaching
Speaking with reporters on Wednesday, Stan Van Gundy said assistant coach Patrick Ewing is ready to become an NBA head coach. The Charlotte Bobcats are expected to interview Ewing for their vacant position created by the firing of Paul Silas.
“I think he would really focus on the details of execution and hold guys to a high standard of that,” Van Gundy said. “Look, I think the guy will be a great head coach. I can’t believe it’s taken this long. I don’t know what the problem is in terms of people’s perception. There’s so many other ex-players who can get a shot. He’s ready, and I hope this offseason will be his time.
