Somehow I don't think we'll be able to keep him after this year. Another early sign of changes coming. The Herald reports:
General manager Danny Ainge confirmed yesterday that the Celtics [team stats] associate coach, considered one of the NBA's premier defensive strategists, has drawn feelers from the Los Angeles Clippers and New Orleans Hornets regarding their head coaching vacancies. Both the Clippers and Hornets have asked Ainge for permission to interview Thibodeau, though no meetings have been scheduled.
The Philadelphia Daily News also reported that Thibodeau, who interviewed last year for positions with the Sixers and Sacramento Kings, is once again on Philadelphia's list.
