After the Philadelphia 76ers hired Eddie Jordan as head coach, Boston assistant coach Tom Thibodeau met with the Sacramento Kings in Las Vegas this weekend regarding their head coaching vacancy. Thibodeau, however, is not the top candidate, according to the Sacramento Bee [1]. The Bee reported former Celtic Paul Westphal is the top prospect, followed by LA Lakers assistant coach Kurt Rambis.

Celtics President Danny Ainge advocated for Thibodeau, telling the Bee, “[He] should be a part of any (current) coaching search.” Ainge also promoted his former coach Westphal, who he played for as a member of the Phoenix Suns –”I’m a big fan of Paul Westphal. He understands people, and he understands personalities, and he has a very, very creative basketball mind. ”

Thibodeau is the only candidate of the pool without head coaching experience.
