Sloan to celebrate 20th anniversary facing Wolves and their new coach

By

It was hard to check scores from Saturday’s games and not have the Clippers’ 107-84 victory at Minnesota and Denver’s 118-85 victory at Sacramento catch your eye, especially if you’re getting ready to write a 20th anniversary story this week about Jerry Sloan taking over as Jazz coach.
For the record, there have been 222 coaching changes since Sloan took over for Frank Layden on Dec. 9, 1988. The question is if there will be a 223rd before Tuesday’s game at Minnesota, with the leading candidates being Timberwolves coach Randy Wittman and Sacramento’s Reggie Theus…
Memphis’ Marc Iavaroni and Philadelphia’s Maurice Cheeks also have to be considered on the hot seat, but it looks like a two-coach race between Wittman and Theus to become No. 223 (maybe we’ll have 223 and 224). Wouldn’t it be something for Sloan’s anniversary game to come Tuesday against an interim coach?
