Mavericks assistant Sam Vincent has been contacted by the Seattle SuperSonics about their head coaching vacancy. He is the first known candidate to surface since the team fired Bob Hill on April 24.
Vincent is also one of eight candidates to have interviewed for the Charlotte Bobcats' job. The Sonics are also seeking a general manager.
The former point guard joined Avery Johnson’s staff this season after a stint with the Fort Worth Flyers in the NBA Development League. Vincent also has extensive international head coaching experience.
Del Harris, the Mavs No. 1 assistant and a holdover from Don Nelson’s staff, could also appear on some candidate lists. His contract is expiring, but Harris, who turns 70 on June 18, has not divulged his plans.
