Default Kings interested on Eddie Jordan

Quote:
Kings owners Joe and Gavin Maloof drove the firing of Rick Adelman and the ill-fated hirings of Eric Mussleman and Reggie Theus. This time, the basketball executives are trying to wrest control back. Multiple sources say the Kings have all but eliminated the possibility of retaining interim coach Kenny Natt and have targeted Eddie Jordan to replace him. Jordan was the Kings coach for one season in 1997-98 under GM Geoff Petrie, but, ironically, former owner Jim Thomas pushed to fire him once Petrie made the franchise-changing moves for Chris Webber and Vlade Divac. European coaches -- Ettore Messina and David Blatt -- also have been mentioned as possibilities, but multiple league sources say the Kings are locked on Jordan.


New jersey Nets: There’s significant belief inside and outside the organization that Lawrence Frank will be fired, but some reliable sources think Frank’s fate is still unresolved. If a change is made, GM Kiki Vandeweghe is expected to have the autonomy to make his mark on the organization. Several sources suggest that he will push for Messina, who has won two Euroleague titles with CSKA Moscow.

Messina has surfaced in several recent searches, and it seems just a matter of time until he gets an NBA job. Messina replaced D’Antoni as the coach of Benetton Treviso.

“Kiki will try to do something unorthodox,” one peer insisted.



Flip Saunders is the runaway favorite for the Wizards, who are determined to hire a winning, veteran coach for a win-now team. Avery Johnson could be considered, but several sources say that Saunders is all but assured of a swift hiring once the regular season is done.

Misleading title.

And Jordan's an overrated coach imo.

Yeah, you mean coaches such as Mitchell who most here wanted gone. Saying that he sounds like past Raptor coaches doesn't exactly give me much confidence in Jay.

I've always found the princeton offense that Eddie Jordan ran to be very entertaining, but it's a shame that they've been first round fodder for the Cavs the past couple of seasons.
