Mr. NBA Logo quite possibly be our new GM???

With Ellison on the cusp of completing the purchase of the Warriors franchise, there have been rumors that he has been courting his longtime chum, Jerry West to resurrect this team out of its losing ways, as reported by Fanhouse, and now again by our own TK:

TK's article

How monumental would this be? Hall of Fame legend who has made the transition from player to exec and making probably one of the greatest front office decisions in NBA history trading Vlade Divac for the Kobe Bryant pick and signing Shaq. Then turning the pathetic Grizzlies franchise into a playoff team.

He definitely has the experience and know-how to not only create a winning philosophy and attitude, but also to usher in some talented players who wouldn't even consider signing and playing for the Dubs in the past just by his reputation alone!

Assuming that front office in place, who would JW want to bring in as coach? Del Negro? Mitchell? Van Gundy? I personally think Byron Scott is the perfect candidate, if he is still available when Ellison takes charge. He did a great job with the Nets(2 Finals appearances) and the Hornets and preached defense. His style would definitely slow down the uptempo style offense the Warrirors are used to but hey, this is basically going to be a reborn team: new look, new ownership, new front office, new everything! Whatever it takes to makes this franchise a perennial winner is right in my book.

Your thoughts? What are the actual chances you think Jerry West(and Griffin) WILL take the Warriors job if Ellison follows suit with the reports? And who do you think will be the next coach to replace Nellie? Holla!
