    Read an article he is on the hot seat in OKC. His salary is only 3.9 million, need Spurs to get winning and knock the Thunder out of the playoffs so he gets fired. Our new arena needs a new high profile coach right? I know it isn't going to happen, but a boy can dream....

    He'd be at/near the top of the list for me.

    i was around when we were being turned down by three guys a day, which resulted in me telling Deloss to find someone, anyone that would say yes, even if it was a middle school guy. Result was Weltlich, which is why I never asked for him to be fired. Donovan works for me.

    4th_floor Dude, where's my laptop?

    If we are desparate enough to take a chance on Billy Gillispie, he is the coach at Ranger Junior College. He might turn the program around. And he might get us on probation.

    Smart has 3 years left on his contract with a buyout of 9 mil!

    Who the hell negotiated, and I am kind with that word, his contract. One thing is for sure, no one with STEAL him from us to get out of that 9 mil buyout.

    We have had nothing from him since Barnes trained players left. The crap we see has been consistent. Please go and take your NIT banner with you.

    I'm not that desperate. And I'm pretty desperate.

    I have no clue who we should go after, but I will say, come tip off next season I don't want to see Shaka Smart on our bench. Give the guy the NPV of his $9mil buyout and show him the door. He's become the basketball version of Charlie Strong.

    Except he recruited a lot better than Charlie...

    Shaka Smart is actually better than Charlie Strong... which says a lot more about Charlie Strong than it does Shaka Smart.
