Clippers likely fit for George Karl because of money, not Grizzlies

Stephen Dunn

According to HoopsHype, the Clippers are the likely fit for George Karl because of money.

Per HoopsHype...

Still, the source close to Karl told FOX Sports that Memphis could be an unlikely fit because the team seems unwilling to pay a premium for a premium coach. The Clippers and owner Donald Sterling, however, are ready to pony up big dollars for the right candidate, the source said.

Given that Donald Sterling is allegedly willing to pay big money for a coach, it bodes well for the franchise and corroborates Ramona Shelburne's earlier report about the Don and his willingness to spend what is necessary to hire a top coach.

Does it also mean the Don has finally seen the light? Stay tuned.
