New Orleans Pelicans are interested in hiring Jeff Van Gundy as the next coach of the team

Former New York Knicks and Houston Rockets head coach Jeff Van Gundy who is currently employed as a color commentator of National Basketball Association basketball games since after he was terminated by the Houston Rockets at the end of the 2006-2007 basketball season is one of three coaching candidates that are being considered to replace former Pelicans head coach Tavares "Monty" Williams who was terminated by the basketball team on May 12, 2015.
Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau and Golden State Warriors associate head coach Alvin Gentry are the two other leading candidates to replace Williams as the next head coach of the Pelicans before the start of the 2015-16 basketball season.
Van Gundy was the former head coach of the New York Knicks from 1996-2001 and the Houston Rockets from 2003-2007.
Whoever will be the next basketball coach of the New Orleans Pelicans will have the chance to coach Pelicans power forward Anthony Davis who is one of the future stars of the National Basketball Association.
Van Gundy has decided to keep quiet about the reports of him leaving the broadcast booth working with Mike Breen on the ESPN basketball games to return to coach in the National Basketball Association for the first time since 2007.
There are reports that the Chicago Bulls are likely to terminate Thibodeau as their head coach after five seasons of coaching the team.
The Bulls lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Semi Finals in six games in a best of seven series format during the 2014-15 National Basketball Association basketball playoffs.
If the Pelicans are to hire Gentry to succeed Williams as the Pelicans head coach, the Pelicans will have to wait until the Warriors basketball season ends.
It remains to be seen who the Pelicans will hire as the next coach before the start of the 2015-16 National Basketball Association season.
