New Orleans Times-Picayune


The Times-Picayune's Jimmy Smith and John Reid report that the Hornets are expected to interview Nets assistant Brian Hill for their head coaching vacancy today. Both Rudy Tomjanovich and George Karl have dropped out of the running for the job.


Hill was good with the Magic, I think he'd do a good job getting the Nornets outta thier slump.

I think they have gone far enough that Coach Brown can talk him into staying for a hile, to see what they can accomplish in a whole year together. Unless the Knicks come with real big money...

With the #1 pick things just might be looking up for the Magic.

And I sure hope that the Jazz can find a way to hang on to Kiralinko, he was the best player this past year.

I don't see why the Jazz would want to move up, I can't think of a player, except Okafor, who would be worth it in this draft.

No kidding. Compared to last year's LeBron, Carmelo, Dwayne Wade draft this year's NBA draft is a real downer.
