On the Clippers’ coaching vacancy, keep an eye on Robert Pack, who is emerging and may get an interview. Pack is a former NBA player and was a key assistant on Vinny Del Negro’s staff. Boston Globe
Robert Pack, not Iavaroni, is the Del Negro assistant at the front of the interim line, but Pack's promise and presumed ability to connect with Chris Paul after working with him in both New Orleans and L.A. doesn't change the fact that he's never been a head coach before. That would make it a hard handoff from Del Negro to Pack, given how much pressure the Clips are already facing to salvage something from this season, with Blake Griffin eligible for a contract extension in July and CP3 under contract only through June 2013.

Bill Simmons: As I tweeted before DS's staff wanted to replace VDN w/ Robert Pack on Friday. DS overruled, wanted to see 1 home game before deciding. VDN is a lame duck. Players think he's gone, so does Clippers staff. DS won't extend him. This just drags on. 2 home W's didn't fix it. forgot I didn't tweet Pack as VDN's replacement on Saturday (just the other stuff). Pack is interim choice (not Iavaroni) if VDN goes. Twitter
