NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The New Orleans Hornets have met with Boston Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau and former NBA player Mark Jackson about the club's head coaching vacancy.
Team spokesman Harold Kaufman says general manager Jeff Bower and team president Hugh Weber met with the two candidates in Boston on Thursday. Jackson is currently a national NBA television analyst.
Gary Chouest, who has agreed to a deal with George Shin to become the majority owner of the Hornets, also attended the Boston meetings.
The Hornets have now interviewed five candidates for the job. The club also met with former Dallas coach Avery Johnson and current Mavericks assistant Dwane Casey on Tuesday, and with former NBA coach Mike Fratello on Wednesday.
