Marc Stein: Question sure to be asked: How much consideration will Mike D'Antoni/Vinny Del Negro get in Cleveland after working w/David Griffin in PHX. And Clippers assistant coach Alvin Gentry, for that matter, is a very natural target for new GM David Griffin after their PHX stint together. Gentry was considered strongly for Memphis job that went to Dave Joerger and is likely to get another HC shot after his Phoenix success. Twitter @ESPNSteinLine
