The Charlotte Bobcats have received permission to interview Los Angeles Lakers assistant Steve Clifford for their head-coaching job, a Lakers spokesman confirmed Friday.

Clifford, known for his defensive expertise, spent the previous nine seasons working for the Van Gundy brothers – first Jeff Van Gundy with the Houston Rockets, then Stan Van Gundy with the Orlando Magic.

When Stan Van Gundy’s tenure in Orlando ended, Clifford went to the Lakers to work for Mike Brown, who lost his job early this season. Brown’s replacement, Mike D’Antoni, installed Clifford as his lead assistant.

Clifford becomes the sixth known candidate to fill the opening created when the Bobcats fired Mike Dunlap last month. The others:

Former Phoenix Suns coach Alvin Gentry and four assistants: Nate Tibbetts (Cleveland), Kelvin Sampson (Houston), Jeff Hornacek (Utah) and Elston Turner (most recently with the Suns). Rick Bonnell

Crap, this is terrible. First Eddie Jordan, now him? We cannot let this happen.

 

At least we know Dan D'Antoni is forever safe.

I actually care because he and Chuck Persons are the only people that know a thing about defense. MDA is just too blunt.

^ Well if that's the case, then why are they even on the staff? If they won't be allowed to do what they can do, they're just taking up space and stealing money.

Draw up scouting reports, run practice, watch film, etc.....

MDA doesn't care about defense, nor does he preach it. He didn't even allow Tom Tibedou ( sorry if misspelled. On my phone) to serve as his defensive coordinator in Phoenix. MDA wants to run and do things the way he does without influence from anyone.

Steve Clifford is also a coach Thibs and Van Gundy disciple.
