📅 On this day in 2021, the @Golden State Warriors Draymond Green had 10 points, 13 rebounds, and 15 assists in a 123-108 win over the Pelicans.
It was Green’s seventh 15-assist game of the season, breaking a tie with LeBron James for the most such games in a single season by a non-guard. PM

Report: Vivek Ranadive-favored Mark Jackson frontrunner as Kings’ next coach…11:46 AM

Justin Kobatko @jkubatko

James Harden now has 18 career playoff games in which he’s shot less than 40% from the field and committed five or more turnovers.
Since the NBA began tracking individual turnovers in 1977-78, only LeBron James (22) and Russell Westbrook (20) have recorded more such games.

Jake Fisher @JakeLFischer

Kings officials maintain their three finalists hold level chances at Sacramento’s head coaching job, but Mark Jackson appears to be the front-runner and Kings owner Vivek Ranadive’s favorite candidate. More on SAC, CHA, LAL, Utah and Philly at @BR_NBA:…9:01AM

I think Reggie Miller with zero games of coaching experience would be a better coach than Mark Jackson – 10:26 PM

Micah Adams @MicahAdams13

DeAndre Jordan got waived for DJ Agustin by a Lakers team that finished 33-49 and was so thin inside that LeBron started at center.
So yeah… I’d say the bad DJ minutes are not surprising. – 8:21 PM

Ryan Ward @RyanWardLA

For those disappointed Mark Jackson may be on his way to SAC rather than LA, there’s a reason he hasn’t coached since 2014 and it’s not because he’s picky. Same kind of deal with Westbrook being on 4 teams in 4 yrs (likely soon to be 5 in 5 yrs). Not a hot commodity. – 4:57 PM

More on this storyline

D’Antoni has been identified as a serious candidate early in the process, especially because of the possibility of pairing him with young point guard LaMelo Ball, sources said. -via ESPN / May 3, 2022 Adrian Wojnarowski: ESPN Sources: The Charlotte Hornets are beginning to interview candidates for their head coaching job, including Golden State assistant Kenny Atkinson, Milwaukee assistant Darvin Ham, Dallas assistant Sean Sweeney and Mike D’Antoni. -via Twitter @wojespn / May 3, 2022

D’Antoni is expected to receive consideration for the Hornets’ opening. Kupchak hired him in 2012 to helm Los Angeles, and Charlotte is said to value previous head coaching experience in his search, similar to the process in Sacramento. D’Antoni’s uncanny ability to maximize playmaking point guards would seem to form a natural marriage with the Hornets’ future, featuring a second-year All-Star Ball. -via Bleacher Report / May 3, 2022
