Stan Van Gundy — Did he really do that poor a job with the Miami Heat, or did he set the table for Pat Riley to win another championship? … Paul Silas — Yeah, Silas should get another chance. He was criticized for being too hard on the players, but he is exactly the stout role model LeBron James needed in Cleveland… John Lucas — Why not give ol’ Luke one more chance. He is great at rebuilding franchises but not so good at seeing them through… Lionel Hollins — The longtime Memphis assistant had a 60-game stint with Vancouver in 2000 but has paid his dues for the past six years and would be a solid head coach… Lenny Wilkens — He really didn’t like the way matters ended in New York with the Knicks, so Wilkens should get an opportunity to go out how he wants to. The question is whether he is interested.
