Duties May Be Clipped

First new thread post, go easy on the newbie! :)

 

Several NBA sources said the Clippers are quietly considering relieving coach/general manager Mike Dunleavy of his GM duties and bringing in someone else. Rumored candidates include former Heat GM Randy Pfund, a former Lakers coach, and ex-Lakers and Grizzlies GM and Hall of Famer Jerry West. If a new GM is brought in, Dunleavy would be expected to remain as coach in large part because he is under contract until 2011. The Clippers have a long list of talent - Baron Davis, Eric Gordon, Al Thornton, Zach Randolph, Marcus Camby, Chris Kaman - but have been one of the NBA's most disappointing teams this season. As of Friday, the Clippers had lost 193 man-games to injuries and illness, while using 29 starting lineups this season. Dunleavy, who was hired in 2003, is the third-longest-tenured coach in the NBA behind Utah's Jerry Sloan and San Antonio's Gregg Popovich. Dunleavy and Davis, who signed a five-year, $65 million contract during the offseason, haven't always seen eye-to-eye this season.
