The Hornets have had to make a hard pivot after Warriors assistant Kenny Atkinson suddenly backed out of his agreement to be the team’s next head coach.
D’Antoni was the second of two finalists to be the next Hornets head coach before the team ultimately went with Atkinson. Now that Atkinson is out of the mix, it looks like D’Antoni is candidate number one.
