Thought this was interesting. Not sure if has the desire to deal with certain NBA head coaching problems.

Mods move if you want.

My username obligates me to make a comment in this thread :-) I think they're trying to replicate what Hornacek has done in Phoenix. Not to mention Hornacek had a couple of years as an assistant under his belt in Utah. Meanwhile, JS would be a rookie coach (same as Kidd this year) in the NBA. I mean, there's no guarantee Stockton is even good at coaching (although picking one of the best PGs in the history of the game is as good of a choice as any).

Smells like a PR stunt by team badly in need of some good PR.

That's nice, but it's a pretty big step from an assistant on a girls team to a head coach position on a grown men NBA team.

Yes this will happen as long as the Jazz play all of their games at the Warehouse and they hold training camp up at Priest Lake

Anybody who knows JS knows that he does not need the money and the last thing he wants to do is deal with a high-profile job where he has to deal with the media. Plus, he has said he thinks the modern NBA is not his cup of tea. He is an old-school "team first" kind of guy and the typical player in today's NBA is not something he wants to deal with.

Q: Do you see yourself having more involvement with the Jazz organization in a formal capacity going forward?

Stockton: I havenít ruled anything out, but Iím enjoying what Iím doing. I have a 12-year-old son, Samuel, who Iím coaching in the seventh grade, and Iím having a blast at it. There's so much of that still ahead of me. My daughterís in high school, Laura, and Iím enjoying coaching with her. My kids that are older than her are playing. My daughter Lindsay is playing at Montana state. David is playing at Gonzaga. My son Michael, who you mentioned, is in Germany playing. I donít want to change. I'm enjoying that. I'm enjoying getting to see them play, and then itís not always easy, but it would be impossible if I had a job like coaching. So, fortunately, Iím coaching at a level where I have a little flexibility in my schedule.

Yup. Seems like they'd give him a private call to see if he's interested. Sounds like the time UW announced the 3 games in Key Arena offer on the radio and in the press.
