Default Head coach: Let's see your pick

Which coach would you sign if you were in BC's position and had any coach to pick from? Whether it be now or last summer. It cannot be coaches like Phil Jackson or Doc Rivers as they are done after this season. Pick a coach you would like to see take this young team to the promise land.

My top 3 picks:

1. Nate McMillan (toughest S.O.B. out there, amazing what he's doing with the Blazers, makes them play 110% no matter who's healthy and who's playing.)
2. Tom Thibodeau (One of the best defensive masters out there, championship experience)
3. Doug Collins (I really like him as a head coach. Used to love listening to him as a commentator. Extremely high basketball IQ along with it looks like a good motivator for the 76ers)

Your choice(s):

Larry Drew - ATL
Tom Thibodeau - CHI
Paul Silas - CHA
Byron Scott - CLE
Rick Carlisle - DAL
John Keuster - DET
Keith Smart - GS
Frank Vogel - IND
Vinny Del Negro - LAC
Lionel Hollins - MEM
Erik Spoelstra - MIA
Scott Skiles - MIL
Kurt Rambis - MIN
Avery Johnson - NJ
Monte Williams - NO
Mike D'antoni - NY
Scott Brooks - OKC
Doug Collins - PHI
Alvin Gentry - PHO
Nate McMillan - POR
Paul Westphal - SAC
Tyron Corbin - UTA

Some free head coaches:

Mike Dunleavy, Mike Fratello, Jeff Van Gundy, Eddie Jordan, Mike Brown

I took out Jackson, Rivers, Van Gundy, Popovich, Saunders, Adelman, Karl as it seems they could be done in 1-3 years.
