Look for Walsh to resurface as a reasonable contender for jobs in Orlando or Washington should Otis Smith be fired and/or Ernie Grunfeld not be rehired.
Walsh, 71, is famous for selecting UCLA guard Reggie Miller over the home town favorite, Indiana’s Steve Alford, while running the Pacers. Walsh also helped the New York Knicks clean up their mess and create enough cap space to sign Amar’e Stoudemire.
