Milwaukee Bucks Fire Jim Boylan, Target Stan Van Gundy

They say the world gets faster every day and they weren’t kidding, especially when it comes to the NBA, where coaches are getting axed left and right. Milwaukee Bucks interim coach Jim Boylan was the latest to get the pink slip and the team wasted no time in targeting a replacement in Stan Van Gundy.

The short, squeaky coach got shafted by the Orlando Magic in the midst of the Dwightmare, but he’s a superb coaching candidate for a team like the Bucks, that has great potential, but just needs a little direction.

The 2013 NBA playoffs are well under way, but so is the NBA coaching carousel for teams that didn’t qualify for the postseason: the Charlotte Bobcats fired coach Mike Dunlap, the Detroit Pistons axed Lawrence Frank and the Cleveland Cavaliers canned Byron Scott right before reuniting with Mike Brown, who was fired by the Los Angeles Lakers after just five games this year and then replaced by Mike D’Anonti.

Other possible replacements for Boylan are Houston Rockets assistant Kelvin Sampson, Lakers assistant Steve Clifford and Golden State Warriors assistant Mike Malone.
