Default Bobcats Hope To Hire Coach Before Draft

Source: Bobcats to hire coach soon

The Charlotte Bobcats might have a new coach by the start of next week.

A source familiar with the situation said team officials would like to leave for next week's pre-draft camp, near Orlando, Fla., with the coach selected. Dallas Mavericks assistant coach Sam Vincent appears to be a strong candidate, and met with at least one Bobcats official over the weekend, the source said.

Bobcats managing partner Michael Jordan and general manager Bernie Bickerstaff interviewed numerous candidates for the job. A source revealed Monday that Jordan also interviewed two Bobcats assistants -- John-Blair Bickerstaff and Jeff Capel -- for the top position.

The Bobcats were expected to have interest in Toronto Raptors coach Sam Mitchell if he became available. However, the Raptors are reportedly close to re-signing Mitchell, whose contract expires in late June.

Mitchell, the current NBA Coach of the Year, briefly served as a Bobcats assistant
