In response to:
Can Suns assistant help Howard?
The Magic requested and were granted permission to talk to Suns assistant coach Marc Iavaroni about their vacant head-coaching position. The Magic fired coach Brian Hill on Wednesday and are believed to be seeking a replacement who can bring an up-tempo style and nurture the skills of budding big man Dwight Howard. Iavaroni would fit both qualities.
Even though I am a Phoenix Suns fan, I can't say I would hate to see that happen. The Magic would actually be a fun team to watch if Iavaroni is successful with them. Jameer Nelson would be running the break like he was back at St. Joe's. And, as for Dwight Howard, he could become an all-star under Marc's tutelage.
