Former Bulls coach Scott Skiles remains on track to be Magic coach. Assistant GM Matt Lloyd worked with him at Bulls.
Just because Scott Skiles is on track to become the Magic's coach has no bearing on whether the team will re-sign Tobias Harris.
Hearing that the Magic, if they have their way, will have a deal with Scott Skiles to be their new head coach by day's end
Story going online now: ESPN sources say Magic enter contract talks to make Scott Skiles next coach and hope to strike deal as soon as today
Tom Thibodeau has no interest, I'm told, in coaching Pelicans (feels Davis will leave when pact permits), Magic (Skiles on tap) or Nuggets.
Skiles is frontrunner for Orlando Magic job but, according to ESPN sources, has been interviewed by Pelicans along with Gentry and Van Gundy
I fully expect Scott Skiles to be next Magic coach, maybe officially named Thursday or Friday.
NBA Finals Records: Michael 6-0, Duncan 5-1, Kobe 5-2, Magic 5-4, Bird 3-2, LeBron 2-3. But LeBron now the only one to go to five straight.
End of debate. LeBron James IS the greatest player Basketball has ever seen. Apologies to Michael, Magic and all other candidates. #LBJ#1
LeBron headed to his 5th Finals in a row. Michael, Magic and Bird never did that.
The real magic of the Cavs in the NBA Finals? Worldwide media - meet J.R. Smith. You're welcome, world.
LeBron James is the first player to go to five straight NBA Finals since 1966! Jordan didn't do it. Or Shaq. Or Magic... Kinda unbelievable.
Magic did it from 82-85. Bird did it from 84-87. If there was ever a doubt the Cavs could get there, it was LeBron going to 5 straight
LeBron five straight Finals. Jordan never did that. Magic never did that. Bird never did that. But James Jones has.
If NY passes on Mudiay, have to wonder what Magic would do. Take another PG w/ a shaky J or fill a need w/ Hezonja/Porzingis/WCS/Winslow?
Sources tell me Scott Skiles will start going by "Scotty 2 Hotty" and plans on doing the worm down the sideline when the Magic win.
