So with new ownership comes a new FO... maybe. But with the dysfunctional FO that we have, I think chances might be a little higher than a "maybe". I know it's kind of early to be doing so, but let's look at some possible candidates for the head coach.
The current head coach who hasn't had much success in the past couple of years including some head scratching calls (playing Monta 49 out of 48 minutes in a game), but also helped in turning our team around (We Believe). He has one more year on his contract, worth 6 million, and at 70 years old is likely to retire after next year. Plays at a very fast pace with minimal defense.
Already been rumored to be Warriors head coach. He retired as a player after the 02-03 season and became Lakers assistant coach in 04-05. May try instilling a triangle offense which may not be the best fit for the Warriors, but is a great players' coach who earns the respect of his players and is able to communicate well with them.
Still currently is the Heat coach, but his job is on the line depending on whether or not Pat Riley decides to take over. Words from Pat Riley himself about Spoelstra are "This game is now about younger coaches who are technologically skilled, innovative and bring fresh new ideas. That's what we feel we are getting with Erik Spoelstra. He's a man that was born to coach. A lot of players want the discipline; they will play [hard] for Spoelstra, because they respect him." Career record of 90-74 and led the Heat to the playoffs in both of his two seasons there.
Currently coach at North Carolina and has had great success at the college level. Although he may not want to leave UNC for the NBA, Williams seems to be a possible fit as the Warriors coach. He coached Brandan Wright and led a team with two small guards (Lawson and Ellington) to the National Championship.
Mike Dunleavy Sr:
Out of these guys I would take Shaw because of his ability to work and communicate with his players which is something that I think is lacking between Nellie and the squad. While he may not have the most experience as a head coach, he watched and learned from the team with the most leadership in the Lakers. Not only did the Lakers have coaching coming from Phil Jackson... but also Kobe and Fisher. I think that Shaw could take his experience from LA and turn it into something special as the Warriors coach.
