07:09 AM ET 06.03 | In the case of George Karl, that Coach of the Year curse may strike again. [Karl's] status has become "unsettled" following the departure of general manager Masai Ujiri for the Toronto Raptors, two sources close to the situation said late Saturday night. Karl, who was named the NBA's coach of the year following the Nuggets' 57-win season, is not in any imminent danger of losing his job, the sources stressed. But Ujiri's departure, coupled with Denver's disappointing first-round playoff exit, has shaken things up in Denver to the point that Karl, who is under contract for just one more season, could, incredibly, begin the season on the hot seat. ... The Los Angeles Clippers have had initial conversations with the Nuggets about Karl, league sources said.

Would be a good coach for the Clippers. With Karl and Hollins becoming available, I wonder if the Cavs internally are questioning their decision to hire Mike Brown so quickly.

Funny stuff. That's why it's not good to rush in hiring a coach when we knew that there will be some good coaches available. Mike Brown will be tested. We'll see if he can coach a team that's always lottery bound. We already knew that he can't coach a team w/ superstars.

The problem is that you don't know who will be available. You have to grab a good one when you can or else there may only be scraps left behind.

I guess they got their eye on Brown for a long time now...

What has Karl, though, really accomplished in the last 15 years?He has a laundry list of 1st round exits and he has had some talent Some coaches just don't have that 'it ' factor that can help a team get deep into the playoffs

Damn good point!!! VDN coached the Clipps to their first (ever) NBA Pacific division title, with a 56-26 reord. What makes anyone think the Karl would do any better. Also will CP be happy with Karl coaching the Clipps???

The Knicks need to pull a covert fast one and get CP3 in NY some how. Back load his contract, or buy 3 apt buildings under the table or something.And CP3 should get on board with that underhanded plan. He knows he wants to come to NY and we want him, so what else is there besides getting it done.

Pay him $1M per season and give him an MSG show for which he will be paid $17M per season. Se that? DONE!
