12:42 AM ET 05.20 | Kelvin Sampson is a hot name on the NBA head coaching market, as he's in the mix for four of the six current job openings. Sampson has already interviewed with the Bucks and Bobcats, and he's expected to interview with the 76ers and Suns in the coming week. Sampson does not have any NBA head coaching experience other than a brief interim period with the Rockets, but he was successful with Oklahoma and Indiana in college before being forced to resign as the Hoosiers' head coach in 2008. Sampson entered the NBA ranks as an advisor with the Spurs that same year before joining Scott Skiles' staff in Milwaukee. Sampson has been on Kevin McHale's staff in Houston since 2011.

Sampson will most likely get a HC job this year...only because there are so may vaccancies. Most likely spot for him to land is the Suns...IMO.

Well, it's not like he has a lot of options, to coach college ball again ;)
