Would certainly be interesting, I can't see him fairing worse than Doc Rivers did. Only problem is I think Phil could be a little stubborn and would stick to playing the triangle even if it doesn't work.

I am not a fan of him. I think that he left a great situation in Memphis and have not done great in Sacramento.
I got one that would sure get a no to but what about lionel Hollins from la Lakers. He turned a struggling Memphis Grizzlies into a pretty decent playoff team. In addition, it seems like he knows how to take a team and turn them around.
Another one would be Larry brown...
Last September, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski asked Erik Spoelstra and Doc Rivers to name an opposing head coach for whom it was particularly tough to prepare. Both coaches cited Dave Joerger for his creativity and game management.

That was/is an incredibly young team that didn’t have a defined leader, which meant more of the credit went to the coaching staff when the team performed well. And he did great with the Grizz too; they only regressed in 2016 because of injuries.
Hollins was a good coach, but he’s in his mid-60-s and he’s not *that* good. I’d rather go with Udoka; not head coaching experience, but a terrific resume coming and understanding the current game and players. I like Wes Unseld Jr. for the same reason.
If Lue ends up with the Clippers and Chauncey Billups doesn’t land one of the other head coaching jobs (New Orleans, Houston, Indiana), then Billups could end up as Lue’s lead assistant. Several prominent members of the Clippers organization hold Billups in high regard, per sources. Billups was the club’s color analyst on television last season but, per ESPN, is interested in coaching.

It looks like if we go with Lue, Billups may join the staff, and I'm guessing Cassell might remain as well (assuming he doesn't get an offer elsewhere). A coaching staff of Lue, Cassell, and Billups... I kind of like that. I see Cassell and Billups challenging Lue if he does a bad job, where as with Doc, I think they were probably afraid to challenge him.
