As the playoffs heat up, so does the NBA coaching carousel. A number of teams cut ties with their coach before or at regular season's end -- Vinny Del Negro in Chicago; Kim Hughes with the Clippers; Eddie Jordan in Philadelphia; Jeff Bower stepping down in New Orleans; and Kiki Vandeweghe going back to the front office in New Jersey, for now -- meaning the list of potential candidates seems to grow by the day.
The Celtics' legend and former Timberwolves GM and coach is now an analyst for NBA TV. But he could agree to another career change should the Bulls act on their rumored interest in him as coach.
