Report: Jazz to gauge Stockton's coaching interest
CBS Sports 76+ SHARES
ESPN reports that the Utah Jazz plan to reach out to former Jazz great John Stockton to guage his interest in their open coaching position.
The Utah Jazz, as part of a broad coaching search expected to feature some 20 candidates, plan to sound out Jazz legend John Stockton to see whether he has any interest in the position, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.
Sources told ESPN.com that Jazz officials intend to at least pose the question to the Hall of Fame guard about his willingness to move into coaching, while mindful of Stockton's lack of previous coaching experience and the fact that he has long loathed the sort of spotlight associated with the job.
Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey declined comment Tuesday night about Stockton or any other prospective candidates when reached by ESPN.com.
