Chuck Person, who spent some of his NBA career with the San Antonio Spurs is a candidate for the Golden State Warriors vacant coaching position according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports.
Meanwhile, Warriors management – bolstered by the addition of Hall of Fame consultant Jerry West – remains focused on a list of five remaining candidates the team has spoken with about its head coaching vacancy: Lakers assistants Brian Shaw and Chuck Person; Hornets assistant Michael Malone; ABC/ESPN broadcaster Mark Jackson; and Frank. The team also had spoken with former Cavs coach Mike Brown, who was hired Wednesday to replace Phil Jackson as coach of the Lakers.
Person spent three years of his career with the Spurs from 1994 to 1998. He was traded in January of 1999 to the Chicago Bulls for Steve Kerr, just four months before the franchise would win its first NBA Championship.
