Nuggets Met With Mike D’Antoni About Coaching Vacancy

dantoninuggetsEven though he quit as head coach in the two biggest markets in the league (Knicks and Lakers), Mike D’Antoni has still managed to be a coveted NBA coaching commodity.

To that end, D’Antoni recently met with the Denver Nuggets to discuss their coaching vacancy. Denver has a desire to emerge as a fast-breaking, high-octane offense and D’Antoni is believed to be able to help that.

Denver general manager Tim Connelly conducted a sit-down with D’Antoni in California on Tuesday, league sources said.

D’Antoni’s vaunted running game fits into Denver’s determination that it wants to play faster in the future. Melvin Hunt, the interim coach in the wake of Brian Shaw’s firing, remains a strong contender to retain the full-time job, league sources said.
