Report: John Calipari interested in the Pelicans job. He makes 8 mill a year at UK. Can he make that in the NBA just coaching?
Doesn't necessarily mean Pelicans would hire Gentry obviously just that sentiment exists they'd rather wait to see what Bulls do first.
Lot of chatter at draft combine that Pelicans would be hesitant to offer compensation for Thibodeau. Gentry interview supports that mindset.
The Warriors are probably hoping Gentry takes the Chicago job. Dealing with an improved Pelicans every year seems unideal
New Orleans starting their coaching search on the right foot. Gentry would be awesome for the Pelicans.
Warriors beat the Grizzlies by a higher point differential than they had in the Pelicans sweep (8.0 vs. 7.8)
I saw this against New Orleans but figured it was the Pelicans inexperience. But the Warriors apparently have a close-out mode
For those thinking potential Thibs compensation: Pelicans don't have '15 first (Asik), can't trade '16 first unless they acquire another.
With Thibodeau having 2 years left on deal, look for Bulls to view him as asset. Both Magic and Pelicans expected to show interest.
Thibs on if other teams (Pelicans/Magic) approach him: "I haven't even thought about it."
With Pelicans staff in town for combine, does Thibs take New Orleans job tonight?
