We’re hearing that the Bobcats may take a look at Jerry Sloan to replace Paul Silas. The former Utah Jazz coach would be a tremendous, out-of-the-box choice and the first indication that Jordan is committed to turning his seven-win team around. New York Daily News
Besides the Jordan issue, Sloan would also have to be willing to work under GM Rich Cho, who has been entrusted by Jordan to rebuild the team after it closed out the season with 23 straight losses and broke the NBA record by winning only 10.6% of its games. “That would be like going from being the heavyweight champ to being a sparring partner,” said one Sloan confidant the other day. “Why go get beat up? Why would Jerry want to be in a rebuilding situation, at this stage of his life? He doesn’t take losing easy. He takes it hard.” New York Daily News
I'd rather see him take something like this and see what he can do with it than going into the obvious fit like the Clippers where the pick and roll is already set up for him. His best job was when he got out of his comfort zone for a season after John and Karl were gone and he actually changed what he usually did which is part of what's interesting now with Ty as he continues to grow into the job.
