3:00pm: Two more coaching jobs opened in the NBA within the past week, but the broadest coaching search came to a sudden end. Dave Joerger was unemployed for barely 48 hours, bouncing from his Grizzlies firing into the Kings vacancy. Frank Vogel hasn’t rebounded from his Pacers dismissal quite so quickly, but he appears to be the front-runner to replace Joerger in Memphis. Meanwhile, the Rockets and Knicks are taking divergent approaches to filling their openings, with Houston conducting a wide-ranging search while New York keeps its list short. We can talk about all of this plus free agency, the draft and the playoffs in today’s chat.
