Would Thorn Elevate an Assistant?

There were hints Monday that Rod Thorn might not be seeking that big name in the Nets coaching search but instead be ready to (once again) promote an assistant coach to the big chair.  Both of his previous coaching hires with the Nets, Byron Scott and Lawrence Frank, had no head coaching experience. 

As beat writers sifted the tea leaves, attention turned to a number of assistants, primarily Boston's "associate head coach", Tom Thibodeau. He's generally credited with developing the Celtics defense--and doing the same thing in assistant jobs with the Knicks and Rockets before that.  Other assistants who could be elevated this summer include Houston's Elston Turrner, Memphis' David Joerger, Portland's Monty Williams and Dallas' Dwane Casey.
