Amid the turmoil in Dallas recently, former Indiana Pacers head coach Rick Carlisle is back on the market. As the Pacers look to fill their head coaching vacancy, a familiar face has become available after Carlisle stepped down from the same role with the Mavericks.

There are already a number of strong coaching candidates available for the Pacers before the NBA offseason even truly begins but none may be more enticing than Carlisle.
