Per Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated, the Charlotte Bobcats could be looking at two Orlando Magic assistant coaches – Patrick Ewing and Steve Clifford – to replace the recently dismissed Paul Silas.
As such, the phone of Magic assistant and Jordan’s good friend Patrick Ewing shouldn’t be ringing from the 704 area code anytime soon. But odds are that it will, especially because Jordan and Ewing talked about the job before Silas replaced Larry Brown in December 2010 and it was speculated then that Ewing would come on board as head coach eventually.
A second Magic assistant, Steve Clifford, is another name to remember as someone who could receive an interview. And if Ewing did, in fact, wind up getting his first shot as a head coach, Clifford could even come with him as a package deal of sorts.
