Chris Fleming Rumors

Wizards interview Chris Fleming for head coach position

Two two weeks after the dismissal of Scott Brooks as Wizards head coach, more names of those drawing interest and participating in interviews to become his replacement are coming out. Bulls assistant coach Chris Fleming is among those who have interviewed for the vacancy, NBC Sports Washington has learned.
“No brainer, Kenny Atkinson,” one NBA scout told HoopsHype. “It’s a young team. He will do for Chicago exactly what he did for Brooklyn. He’ll have them overachieve, outhustle and outwork teams on a nightly basis. They will be physical, smart, and tough to guard because they will share the ball. Plus, he’s a no-nonsense, direct, fair coach who relates very well to players. He’d be my pick.” In Chicago, Atkinson would be reunited with assistant coach Chris Fleming, whom he worked with for three seasons in Brooklyn.
