Mavs assistant Sam Vincent is a very popular fellow at the moment.
Not only have Charlotte and Seattle contacted Vincent about their head coaching gigs, but now add Orlando to that mix. This is pretty interesting considering Vincent just finished his first season with the Mavs, which was his first on an NBA bench.
Now, the former NBA point guard has extensive head coaching experience overseas and with the Ft. Worth Flyers of the D-League, but to get this much attention to become an NBA boss is interesting.
Of course, Avery didn't exactly have a world of experience either when he took over the Mavs, although he seemed to be prepping for his head coaching career from the day he played his first game.
If Vincent leaves, you could have a pretty good overhaul of the Mavs' staff. No. 1 assistant Del Harris might be on his way out. A holdover from the Don Nelson days, Harris' contract is expiring and there's a feeling that he might not be back.
Harris, who turns 70 next month, could be on his way to Milwaukee as an assistant. It just makes sense since his son, Larry, is the GM and head coach Larry Krystkowiak, 42, promoted to head coach on March 14 after the Bucks fired Terry Stotts, could use a veteran hand.
Should be interesting.
