Since the Clippers parted ways with Vinny Del Negro earlier this month, rumors have swirled about who will replace Del Negro on L.A.'s bench next season. At least one report has suggested that, after opting for inexpensive hires in recent years, the team is eyeing big-name candidates. Of those big names, Jeff Van Gundy and Brian Shaw may be at or near the top of the club's wish list, according to the latest report.
Lionel Hollins is also drawing interest from a number of clubs, and the Clippers, who were eliminated by Hollins' Grizzlies in round one, are among them. Alvin Gentry, Nate McMillan, and Byron Scott are other candidates believed to be favored by Chris Paul, which figures to be a significant factor as the point guard's free agency approches.
So what do you think? Will one of those aforementioned candidates end up on the Clippers' bench next season, or could it end up being a name that hasn't been a major part of the discussion so far? Weigh in below with your vote and your thoughts on who will become the next Clippers' head coach.
