Chris Paul: It’ll Take a While to Find a New Coach
With the New Orleans Hornets’ coaching search expected to be extensive and possibly include high-profile candidates Avery Johnson and Jeff Van Gundy, three-time All-Star point guard Chris Paul said he is excited.
"Like I said, it is going to be a good summer for us, ” Paul said. "It’s exciting, but at the same time, it’s going to be a long process.”
Paul declined to say if he recommended anyone for the Hornets to put on the search list.
But team president Hugh Weber and General Manager Jeff Bower said their pool of candidates will include current and former NBA head coaches, assistants and up-and-coming young coaches — and college coaches might be considered.
