Mark former Orlando Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy off the “new Los Angeles Clippers head coach wish-list”.

This morning on ESPN Radio, Van Gundy announced he wouldn’t be returning to the coaching sidelines this season.

Of all the coaches on the open market, Stan was the most coveted being rumored to have a connection with the Brooklyn Nets, Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks. If/when the Clippers coaching spot opened those rumors would’ve arisen too.

Now it’s back to the drawing board for Clippers fans. Obviously Byron Scott and Jerry Sloan will be the big names that are sought out by fans and analysts to coach this, hopefully, Chris Paul-led Clippers team. Lionel Hollins has popped up in the rumor mill after Donald Sterling showed up during Game 1 of the San Antonio Spurs-Memphis Grizzlies series. Several assistant coaches will also (hello Brian Shaw!).
