Article Summary:

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, those two candidates happen to be Los Angeles Clippers assistant coach Chauncey Billups and San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon.

D’Antoni, who’s had several head coaching stints over the years with teams such as the Denver Nuggets, Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers, and most recently the Houston Rockets, is looking for his sixth head coaching position in the NBA.

Not only does D’Antoni’s years of experience appeal to a playoff-ready team that’s trying to win now, but the veteran coach has had a little bit of experience coaching in Portland.

Following his single-season coaching in Denver, D’Antoni was an assistant with the Blazers for the 2000-2001 season.

Perhaps, he’ll make a return to Portland over 20 years later to head coach the Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum-led Trail Blazers next season.
