Well, I thought we needed a new one.
Anyways, Hornets just met up with Pritchard:
Hornets meet with Pritchard for GM job
By David Aldridge, TNT Analyst

The New Orleans Hornets discussed their now-vacant general manager job with the representative for former Portland GM Kevin Pritchard at the Las Vegas Summer League, according to sources.

The sources said that team president Hugh Weber met with Warren LeGarie, Pritchard's agent, to talk about the opening, created when the Hornets fired Jeff Bower on Tuesday. Pritchard worked in Portland with new coach Monty Williams.

Pritchard was a candidate for the New Jersey Nets' GM job, but lost out to former 76ers GM Billy King, who was officially hired on Wednesday.

Pritchard helped rebuild the Blazers in four years, acquiring Brandon Roy, LaMarcus Aldridge, Nicolas Batum, Jerryd Bayless, and Marcus Camby in separate deals. But he drafted Greg Oden, who has played in just one-third of the possible games in three seasons, and fell out of favor with senior management, leading to his ouster the day of the Draft. But Pritchard also added rookie forward Luke Babbitt in a deal before he was released.

Weber declined comment on Tuesday when asked if Bower's firing was linked to Bower's feelings about potentially trading franchise player Chris Paul. A source familiar with all the parties in New Orleans said that the relationship between Bower and Paul had deteriorated in recent months, as the team began tenatively exploring possible trades for the three-time All-Star.

Of course, Bower would not have begun preliminary calls to gauge Paul's trade value without the approval of ownership, and league sources maintain that the desire to determine Paul's trade value came from new proposed majority owner Gary Chouest, who continues negotiations with current owner George Shinn on a transfer. Sources say that if Shinn does not complete the sale of the team to Chouest that Shinn will not trade Paul under any circumstances.

Paul has recently switched agents, amid speculation that he will look to leave New Orleans after the 2011-12 season, when he can get out of his contract, if the Hornets do not dramatically improve the quality of the roster.

I would love to have Shaw coach here. I was talkin to my friends about it as soon as I heard about the Warriors being up for sale. Coming home to coach the team you rooted for as a kid and played for as a pro. It's interesting how not a lot of people remember about his stint with us as a player.

As far as a new GM...I'd like Pritchard. I'd also like Jerry West... Didn't really think about him until about a week ago, but dude can put together a team.

Me too. Not my first pick, but I wouldn't oppose to have him coaching our guys.


Still, I doubt we change HC this year, particularly this late (anything can happen, tho, and I'd love to see it)... but, at the same time, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be Nellie's last season.

I just read that it would be 60-90 days for the deal to be finalized...if it goes the former and the deal is finalized as early as possible, then a GM and HC could be named before training camp starts at the end of September (the 60 day mark would be September 13th).

brian shaw is an assistant coach for a reason because thats all he can, he is not a head coach. he is a ass-kiss-attendant, hence the word assistant. he is nothing more than a phil jackson yes man.

Can Peter and Joe start interviewing possible GM's and HC's now? Is the NBA against that?

I've heard that Erik Spolstra is on the short list of possible candidates?
