CBS Sports coaching update and Clippers' players input in future of Vinny Del Negro

USA TODAY Sports

Here are a couple of articles I came across about the coaching situation. Please comment below if you like.

From CBS Sports:

The Clippers (Vinny Del Negro) and Hawks (Larry Drew) also are expected to have head coaching vacancies in the near future, league sources said. The Clippers are said to be "exploring all options," while the Hawks' decision on Drew's future is expected "sooner than later," sources said. It is widely believed that Hawks GM Danny Ferry prefers to install his own head coach in Atlanta.

From the Daily News:

Whatever decisions the Clippers make this week regarding the status of Coach Vinny Del Negro, input of players could turn out to be a key to the process.

Del Negro, who guided the Clippers to the best record in franchise history only to be gutted by a first-round playoff loss, has reached the end of his three-year contract and the club will decide if he returns.

Whether the potential signing of free agent Chris Paul is linked directly to Del Negro's return, the opinion of the All-Star point guard and forward Blake Griffin will fit somewhere in the equation.

We'll sit down and talk with Vinny and I will go over some things for the future and discuss it with our owner (Donald Sterling) and see where we're at," Sacks said. "It's kind of early right now, we're still in the process of getting feedback from everybody and seeing how we came up short in the series.

"The team did a lot of good things this year. (In) the regular season, we obviously did some things the franchise has never done, but when you don't accomplish your goals and you don't get as far as you'd like in the playoffs, obviously you have to evaluate everything.
