Unemployed coach Stan Van Gundy
After being out of coaching for two full seasons, largely by choice, Van Gundy, 54, is reenergized and willing to listen to offers. Considered a good strategist but not particularly inspirational, Van Gundy spent two-plus seasons coaching the Heat before five seasons with the Magic. He has extensive playoff experience, and reached the NBA Finals with Orlando in 2009. That Stan is the older brother of Jeff Van Gundy, who staunchly supported Jackson this season, should be no more of a factor than the Van Gundy brothers having spent their formative years in Martinez, a half-hour drive from Oakland. Van Gundy's chances: Hot.
