Gentry has emerged as a candidate to replace Vinny Del Negro, whose contract was not renewed by the Clippers last week. Former Nets, Hornets and Cavs coach Byron Scott also is considered a top candidate for the Clippers, in part due to his strong relationship with Chris Paul. Ditto for 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, Pacers assistant Brian Shaw and Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins, the person said. CBSSports.com
