07:02 AM ET 05.06 | The names Nate McMillan and Kelvin Sampson continue to come up. The Milwaukee Bucks are planning interviews with [McMillan and Sampson] this week for the franchise's head-coaching job, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. McMillan and Sampson, a Houston Rockets assistant, are two of Milwaukee general manager John Hammond's top candidates for the job, league sources said. McMillan spent parts of 12 seasons as the coach of the Seattle Sonics and Portland Trail Blazers. Before getting fired midway through the 2010-11 season in Portland, McMillan had led the Blazers to three straight playoff appearances. McMillan recently interviewed with the Detroit Pistons for their coaching opening.

Wow, every team is interviewing Nate now. He would fit in we'll w/ the Nets but they want a young coach who's never had head coaching experience in the NBA.

I hope the Bucks get Sampson. For no other reason than to keep him away for The Pistons.

Obviously that's what the Nets wants that's why they fired PJ. Go see other T&R...
