No way Kobe's wife lets him come to Utah.

She'll see the mountains and think it's Colorado...
Or she sees the other Utah stereotypes, assumes that’s cool in Utah, and decides she wants to be one of the first people riding the next wave of marriage equality.

A couple of names stand out. Almost all have San Antonio connections.

1.) Chip Engelland
2.) Ettore Messina
3.) Becky Hammon
4.) Johnny Bryant (promotion)
5.) Mike Brown (from Quin’s LA days)

I could also see an outside the box type of hire. Adding a TV guy, front office type or even a college coach. Somebody with strong analytical skills.

You'd have to think Messina has been promised the San Antonio job if he wants it when Pop finally retires - otherwise you'd think someone definitely would have hired him as an HC elsewhere.

You also have to wonder if Phoenix will make a play at Favors now. With Len departing and Chandler all but checked out they could definitely use some 4/5 help.

I had this thought too and realized that this might be the only way Kobe stops getting booed at Jazz games. Seriously, that would be a nuts turnaround. He was the most hated man in the building every time he was here and was on record for saying that Utah Fans are classless. I think this would be a crazy story if it happened.

I thought Kobe got an applause at the jazz arena for his final game here on his farewell tour season.

I'm not very concerned about it. Quin knows what he'll need. It'll probably be someone all but the very hard core basketball fans know about. And it may be someone brought in at a lower level due to him promoting within for the lead assistamt.

That's what I was thinking. Snyder knows his people, and he goes to get his people. He got Igor, we know. Who's next? Someone we've never heard of, perhaps.

John Stockton?

I always assumed he just didn't want to, but in the Dan Patrick interview, he wondered aloud why he wasn't coaching (not in the tone of his being rejected, more like he hadn't [yet] pursued it and was questioning why). Mentions it at ~0:40.
