Default Don Nelson and his coaching contract question

If Don Nelson were to quit on the Golden State Warriors because he felt he wasn 't being paid enough, then decided he wanted to coach somewhere else, could he do this or would the contract for sure prevent Nellie from going somewhere else and caoching? Or, if Nellie didn't receive any money after leaving, would the contract then become void?

Or would the Golden State Warriors owner have to take Nellie to court and if so would it be worth it to the Warriors owner to do this?

He could retire and probably avoid being sued for breach of contract. If he quits and tries to coach elsewhere not only will he get sued, but the team he signs with would likely get nailed for interference unless Golden State signs off first.

Avery Johnson was in this exact same situation the season before last though.. and a journalist said that if Cuban didn't pay him Avery would be coaching somewhere else the next season.. and he had a 3 year contract and just completed his first year just like Nellie..
