Nelson was one of three names I [Marc Stein] heard most in the hours after Adelman was informed that his Kings reign was over. The others: Ex-Kings guard and assistant coach Terry Porter and San Antonio Spurs assistant coach P.J. Carlesimo.Personally, my leading choice for the new Kings coach would be Byron Scott. If Larry Brown can get out of his contract with the Pistons to coach the Knicks, the Maloofs should be able to wriggle Scott out of his contract with the Hornets.
