Boylen is top pick for Jazz

The NBA “family tree” of the San Antonio Spurs has grown over the years and it appears it might continue to grow even longer next season. Less than a year after losing both Mike Budenholzer and Brett Brown, it seems the Spurs might be in danger of losing yet another assistant coach.

A source close to Mike Monroe of the San Antonio Express-News has said that Spurs assistant Jim Boylen is Utah general manager Dennis Lindsey’s top candidate to replace the now-fired Ty Corbin as the next head coach of the Utah Jazz.

Lindsey spent time in San Antonio as an assistant general manager from 2007 to 2012. Lindsey was also an assistant GM for the Rockets when Boylen was on Rudy Tomjanovich’s coaching staff.

Boylen has coached in Salt Lake City before when he was at the helm for the University of Utah Utes from 2007-2011.
