Ewing coming in for an interview for the lead assistant position and Darvin Ham is interviewing for an assistant position as well.

 


Within the middle of the next week, Lakers assistant coach Darvin Ham will talk with the Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Bobcats, according to league sources. Los Angeles Daily News

 


Ham is strongly expected to leave the Lakers, according to league sources, leaving D'Antoni with only his brother, Dan, as the remaining assistant on his coaching staff. Eddie Jordan took the Rutgers head-coaching job before the season ended. Los Angeles Daily News

 

The Charlotte Bobcats are bringing in Hall of Fame center Patrick Ewing for an interview on Wednesday for their lead assistant position, someone close to the situation informed CSNNW.com. According to the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter, says “It's Ewing's job for the taking.” CSNNW.com

 

When reached by phone, Ewing confirmed he was meeting with head coach Steve Clifford in Charlotte. “Charlotte is a great city and I'm open-minded,” Ewing told CSNNW.com. “I have worked with Steve for many years in Houston and Orlando and I consider him to be a friend. We'll see what they are looking for and see if it'll be a good fit.” CSNNW.com

 

Dave McMenamin: Source tells me Darvin Ham is likely to join Steve Clifford in Charlotte, leaving LAL with just one full-time assistant in Dan D'Antoni Twitter @mcten

That would be quite a staff. Ham and Ewing are known to be two very good NBA assistants.

Yeah, and the weird thing is, IIRC, he worked specifically with big men in his time in L.A.  I heard he was credited with really helping either Bynum or Howard on a broadcast once, but I can't remember which one it was now.  I'd really like him on the staff.

As a UNC fan I can in all good conscious say fug Darvin Ham!! 

 

IN 1996 UNC fan's hearts is not the only thing he shattered!  ;)

 

 

 

Just kidding, he would be a good hire.

 

BTW not sure I have ever seen a basketball goal that mangled after a dunk.

Wouldn't be shocked to see Lakers go after Ewing if it makes Howard happy.

Howard is gone, the only thing keeping him there was Clifford (our head coach).

I wanted a proven coach and knew nothing about Clifford when they hired him, but the more I read and as this staff comes together... I likey.

The Hawks have hired Darvin Ham as their associate head coach.

 

It will be interesting to see who the Hornets fill out the rest of the staff with.

 

I wouldn't be mad at all if they brought Stephen Silas back again, he always seemed to relate to the players very well.
