Jeff Van Gundy has emerged as a candidate for the Pelicans' open head coaching position according to

Van Gundy joins Tom Thibodeau and Alvin Gentry as confirmed candidates for the job according to the report, with Gentry the only candidate known to be formally interviewed. Considering many thought Monty Williams was safe after making the playoffs, it makes sense that the franchise had some big names lined up after his somewhat surprising release. After all, coaching the Brow has its benefits.

The Pelicans are interested in former head coaches Jeff Van Gundy and Scott Brooks.

Basically every offseason there is a rumor about JVG and this year will be no different. Van Gundy has become one of the better color analysts in the NBA and chances are he'll stay there.

ESPN is reporting that Jeff Van Gundy could be tabbed by the Grizzlies to run the front office and coach the team next season.

Stan Van Gundy is already in a similar role in Detroit and it can't be denied that having both Van Gundy brothers in charge of NBA teams would be a fun endeavor. No word on whether JVG has interest, but this story is probably far from over.

In the unlikely event that Phil Jackson reached out to Jeff Van Gundy to fill the Knicks head coaching vacancy, Gundy said he would definitely listen.

Gundy has not been mentioned in any previous reports about Jackson's potential coaching candidates, but it is worth noting that he'd be interested. With Jackson essentially having to start over again in his search for a head coach after missing out on Steve Kerr there is going to be a lot of names flying around the rumor mill. Stay tuned.

The Nets have reportedly made preliminary contact with Jeff Van Gundy regarding their head coaching vacancy.

The Clippers are also gauging JVG's interest in returning to the sidelines. Selfishly, we hope neither opportunity turns into a reality. Van Gundy is among the most entertaining and knowledgeable color analysts in the business. He's been away from coaching since the 2006-07 season, when his Rockets lost in the first round of the playoffs after a 52-win season.

The Clippers have contacted Jeff Van Gundy to gauge his "preliminary sense of interest" in their vacant head coaching job, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Van Gundy hasn't said one way or the other whether or not he'd be willing to return as a coach next season after thriving in his current media role, but Adrian Wojnarowski reports those close to Van Gundy believe he is "open to considering a return to coaching for the right opportunity." Denver's George Karl is another candidate who has been "discussed" by the Clippers front office, though it sounds like that's a long shot.
