Available coaching candidates?


Does anyone know what NBA coaching candidates are available this summer? I'm having a hard time locating any lists out there. I can think of some in my head, but I'm curious where everyone else is with possible C(oaches)OTF for Portland.

The question I've been asking myself is, "Do we go for a big sexy name (Sloan, D'Antoni, L. Brown, Carlisle), a not-so-sexy name (Scott Skiles, Lawrence Frank, Flip Saunders, Mike Woodson, Sam Mitchell), a career assistant (Mike Budenholzer, Elston Turner), or current commentator (Jeff Van Gundy, Hubie Brown, Mike Fratello)?"

Which then leads me to ask, "What's their coaching style?", or "Does their coaching style blend well with our current core players of Aldridge, Batum, and Matthews?"

Then there's, "Does this or that coach need a superstar PG like D-Will running the team, who's big, capable of scoring, and being your number one option?", "Do they prefer a more traditional sized, pass first, defensive oriented PG like Rondo, who could be your second, third, or fourth scoring option?", or "Can he create a competive and/or championship caliber team with a rookie, or not-so-sexy PG like Augustin, Gragic, or A. Brooks running the team?"

What kind of coach do you want to see in Portland? A half-court coach? A run-and-gun coach? A triangle coach? A push the tempo, but half-court capatible coach? Or a coach that isn't stubborn and can coach on the fly? Yes, that last question was a jab towards what I considered was McMillan's biggest flaw!

I wanted to create a poll, but thought there were way too many options out there and I'm certain I don't know them all. I may in the future if there's enough analytical suggestions.
