Clippers interested in Byron Scott for head coaching jobPosted by Inside Hoops
The Los Angeles Clippers have intensified discussions with Byron Scott about their head coaching position, according to league sources.
Clippers president Andy Roeser has broached financial parameters of a potential contract with Scott’s representatives, sources said. After talks with the Boston Celtics regarding Doc Rivers broke down again Friday, Roeser reached out to Scott’s camp.
It is not clear whether the Clippers’ recent contact with Scott means he is the front-runner among the non-Rivers candidates, a source said.
Sources told ESPN.com’s Ramona Shelburne the Clippers still intend to revisit the Rivers talks one more time, but are using the weekend to make sure they can quickly move on to one of the other three candidates — Scott, Lionel Hollins and Brian Shaw — should the talks with Boston go nowhere.
