Ranking Best Potential Landing Spots for Out-of-Work NBA Head Coaches
USA TODAY Sports
ESPN Analyst Jeff Van Gundy

In ranking the best potential landing spots for out-of-work NBA head coaches, this list highlights which former coach would be the best fit to fill each of the league's six current openings. 

To determine each match, team need, search criteria and the possibility of each coach actually landing in that position were considered. 

While seemingly every team on this list might also prefer to have Hall of Fame coaches Phil Jackson or Jerry Sloan fill their current vacancies, I don't expect either to return in 2013-14.

With a collection of assistant coaches like Michael Malone, Brian Shaw, Jeff Hornacek, Steve Clifford and others competing for these open spots as well, only the six former head coaches with the best chance of landing each job specifically were included.
