Report: Hornets give Thibodeau more time to decide

According to an ESPN report, the New Orleans Hornets [1] decided to give Celtics [2] assistant coach Tom Thibodeau [3] at least one more day to accept their offer to be their head coach. The report says the Hornets offered Thibodeau the position last week, but Thibodeau did not accept by Thursday’s deadline, one day after he interviewed with the Chicago Bulls [4]. Thibodeau also reportedly interviewed with the New Jersey Nets [5] earlier in the week. New Orleans is said to be ready to offer its job to Trail Blazers assistant Monty Williams if Thibodeau does not commit soon.
