The Charlotte Bobcats are coming off the worst season for any team in the history of the NBA.
Obviously, largely because of that alone, they want to head in a new direction next year.
At the moment, the team is in dire need of an experienced coach. According to the New York Daily News, former Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan could be their guy:
We’re hearing that the Bobcats may take a look at Jerry Sloan to replace Paul Silas. ....The obvious connection between Jordan and Sloan is that they both have their numbers hanging from the rafters in Chicago’s United Center. Beyond that, Jordan has great admiration for the coach he twice defeated in the Finals, at the end of his second three-peat.
Sloan has been mentioned before as someone interested in getting back into coaching.
About two months ago, it was rumored that he could coach the New York Knicks.
It would be extremely great for Charlotte if they could land him.
