The hot rumor in Los Angeles has Byron Scott going to the Clippers to become the team’s next head coach. While the discussions are reportedly just beginning, this would be an interesting match for a number of reasons.
First of all, considering that Scott made his name with the Los Angeles Lakers, he’d have to drop his allegiances to the purple and gold.
Secondly, Scott was Chris Paul’s first coach in the NBA. Does CP3 truly like him? If so, that should help Scott get the job. If not, there’s no chance he’ll be considered — especially since Paul is a free agent.
Finally, he’s coming off of a dismal stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The NBA world must really think highly of Scott to give him another shot right away.
