06:58 AM ET 05.02 | Not that he was truly in, but Milwaukee is moving on from Jim Boylan. As [the Bucks] start the process of hiring a new head coach, Stan Van Gundy has emerged as the franchise's top target, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Houston Rockets assistant coach Kelvin Sampson also is near the top of the franchise's list, sources said. ... Among other possible candidates could be Los Angeles Lakers assistant Steve Clifford and Golden State Warriors assistant Mike Malone, sources said. Boylan was in a difficult situation with a roster that included conflicting agendas for potential free agents Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis. Still, there's developing talent within the organization that makes the job intriguing.

Well the Bucks are a playoff team, unlike Detroit or Cleveland.

This is the same short list of candidates that most other franchises want as well.The only names missing are Brian Shaw, Byron Scott, and Nate McMillan.

Yup; HCs in NBA is a huge recycling agency.

To be fair, you usually want to hire someone with experience for a managerial job. What better place to get experience coaching in the NBA than with an NBA team?

I don't disagree. But most of the times, there is very little thought about what system a team wants to play, or matching coaches with personnel available.

For example, Scott goes out and Brown comes in for Cavs. Are they both THAT much different? Both coach some D and near zero O.
