The Sacramento Kings, in the market for a new head coach, have
expanded their search to include Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau,
according to the Philadelphia Daily News.
Philadelphia has already asked for permission to talk to the
defensive specialist who, according to Doc Rivers, is capable of
filling a need much greater than his known specialty.
“I have no doubt about that, and he’s been in my locker room for two
years, so I should know,” the Celtics coach said today. “People see him
standing up on the sidelines and shouting, and they don’t see his
personality like I do when he’s on my office every day. He has a great
sense of humor. He’s just a great guy overall.”
This is going to be just like KG in the playoffs: We're all going to hold out hope for his return… but we know he's not coming back.
