10:45 AM ET 04.07 | If Byron Scott is fired after his third season coaching the Cavaliers, Nate McMillan is a solid candidate. Rumor is if the Sacramento franchise moves to Seattle, McMillan could be the next coach. Phil Jackson? Please. It's doubtful he'll coach, and it certainly won't be the Cavs if he does.

Yep. Poor Byron thought he was going to coach LBJ. Should have called tails instead of heads...

If the money is good go for it.

Nate McMillan? What??? Ha ha ha ha ha ha Wow. Dan Gilbert is really messing this team up.

I still think it's premature to fire Byron at this point. The Cavs have been rebuilding and their 3 best players are hurt. Give the man one more season.

Man, I bet Byron is on his knees every night praying that the Cavs fire him. Would anyone in their right mind want to remain with that mess? Once they let him go he can collect his remaining pay while he waits for the Lakers to fire D'antoni.

Wow. The Knicks just showed everyone what's up. Nice win to keep the streak alive.

He needs to come to San Antonio. Pop should have retired 4 years ago and Nate would already be coaching the Spurs. At least he knows better, not to EVER play Bonner. EVER!

Seriously, he would really help a team with young point guards grow.

He wouldn't be a bad fit for the Cavs or Kings but these owners nowadays wouldn't know a good coach if he jumped up and bit them in the ****.

I see no reason why he would go to the Lakers, they already fire Mike Brown, why would they keep Nate around. Like MB, he is not going to tolerate ninja boy's ball hogging and he is going to hold him responsible for playing perimeter defense, just like MB tried to do.

With LeBron probably returning to the Cavs next season, I can easily see Phil Jackson coaching LBJ and Irving.

They ain't getting out of the Eastern Conference so don't get your hopes up. This is the time of year teams are resting to prep for the playoffs, OKC is no different. The Knicks are a mirage and will be exposed at playoff time.

The Knicks, just like everyone else are going to what they're going to do. Whatever happens its been a great season. However, with that said, you do realize that your credibility suffers when you don't bother to watch the games right? I mean clearly you weren't watching if you think OKC was resting. Please draw from your bottomless well of infinite wisdom and tell me what players the Thunder rested? Perhaps they were saving Thabeet and Liggins for the playoffs in anticipation of them taking over the league? I hear you. That is one 2 headed secret weapon right there! Lookout MJ legacy. Thabeet and Liggins is coming for you!
