Following last week’s news that the Indiana Pacers will talk to Brian Shaw about their head coaching opening, the latest word is that Jim Cleamons will be considered for the open Seattle job. Then there’s Kurt Rambis, who was a finalist for the job at Santa Clara, his alma mater, and it wouldn’t be surprising if Rambis got a job at some point.
As far as trade rumors go, there are a lot out there these days, but the names haven’t changed much. The only thing you’re seeing, league-wide, is less reluctance on the Lakers’ part to trading Andrew Bynum. Does that mean a return to the Jason Kidd talks? Quite possibly. Kevin Garnett remains little more than a pipe dream.
