...The season must be getting close. Sam will be here this season for its entirety for sure. This is because he has far to much money remaining on his contract for Colangelo to eat it. After this season would be the first reasonable opportunity for them to get rid of him. At that point I think it will come down to whether or not there is a realistic long term option available on the market. They're not going to fire Sam and eat the rest of his contract for the sake of getting rid of him and then still have troubles with the coaching situation. Basically, I think that Sam won't be fired this season and if he's fired after that time it won't be a lateral move; it will be to hire a high profile coach. If one isn't available then you'll be making another one of these threads next pre-season.
