Yesterday, the Bobcats announced that Paul Silas will not be returning as head coach for the 2012/13 season. Since then, rumors have heated up about a potential replacement, possibly including Nate McMillan. Here are the latest rumors regarding the Bobcats' coaching search:
- The Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell writes that Warriors assistant Mike Malone and Magic assistant Steve Clifford could potentially be on Charlotte's radar.
- In a separate column, Bonnell notes that where the Bobcats land in the draft lottery could impact their coaching decision, since it would be easier to lure a big name if the team landed top prospect Anthony Davis.
- In the same article, Bonnell speculates about how the Bobcats will use their cap space this summer, wondering if they'll sign a free agent or save the flexibility for the 2013 offseason.
