Five potential assistant coaching hires that make sense for the New Orleans Pelicans

The focus now shifts to filling out the rest of the coaching staff with Stan Van Gundy awarded the top spot by the New Orleans Pelicans earlier this week.

It’s difficult to imagine Alvin Gentry’s two lead assistants, Chris Finch (feel he’ll wind up with the Raptors, replacing the departed Nate Bjorkman) and Jeff Bzdelik, will be retained, but do not expect for the whole staff to be replaced in New Orleans. For instance, Fred Vinson and Joe Boylan were both mentioned by name for their excellent work and results with the roster during David Griffin’s Zoom conference pertaining to Gentry’s dismissal.
