Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Nuggets head coach George Karl has been discussed as a potential coaching candidate by the Clippers front office. Fresh off of winning the NBA's Coach of the Year Award, Karl enters the 2013-14 season in the final guaranteed year of his contract in Denver. Sources say that Karl has usually been uncomfortable about going into the final year of his contracts and has been eager to discuss a possible extension with Denver. With that being said, those same sources say that the feeling around the 62-year-old coach and the team is that ownership wouldn't let him leave for Los Angeles.
Karl, who led the Nuggets franchise to their highest win total since the NBA-ABA merger, has not missed the playoffs in Denver since being named the team's head coach in 2005.
