I think he's a reasonable option, but really I would only fire D'Antoni if Phil was going to come back in some capacity. Otherwise I would make sure D'Antoni was willing to change his coaching style and hire a defensive coordinator. If he is willing to adapt and use Pau, and Phil is not an option, then I say let him have a full year. If he says no I want to trade Pau for Bargnani, run pick & roll with Nash, play small, play fast etc. I'd say you're a moron and hire Scott or whoever else is available and willing to work with the roster.
