ESPN.com’€™s Marc Stein has reported [1] the New Orleans Hornets [2] have made a formal offer to Celtics [3] assistant coach Tom Thibodeau [4] for their head coaching position. But with the Celtics in the midst of the Eastern Conference Finals, a timetable for Thibodeau’€™s decision was unknown.

Thibodeau has been credited for the Celtics defensive success, which is holding opponents to just 90.4 points this postseason. The Hornets allowed nearly 103 points per game during the regular season, tied for 21st in the league. The C’s, on the other hand, were tied for fifth with 95.6 points allowed during the regular season.

According to the report, the Chicago Bulls [5] and New Jersey Nets [6] are still considering Thibodeau for their head coaching vacancies as well.
