Best Potential Replacements for Vinny Del Negro to Keep Chris Paul with Clippers

Chris Paul has decided that Vinny Del Negro will not return as head coach of the Los Angeles Clippers.

Ahem, excuse me, I mean the Clippers as an organization have decided to move forward without Del Negro.

According to Adrian Wojnaorwski of Yahoo! Sports, the Clippers have parted ways with their head coach. His contract had expired and he was up for a new deal, which Los Angeles will not be giving him.

Del Negro spent the last three seasons with the Clippers, compiling a combined record of 128-102 and leading them to two consecutive playoff berths, a feat that hadn't been accomplished since Los Angeles qualified for back-to-back postseason runs in 1992 and 1993.

With Paul set to enter unrestricted free agency this July, the search for Del Negro's replacement must begin immediately. 

By "Del Negro's replacement," I of course mean "Chris Paul's hand-picked preference."

One of the reasons Del Negro was reportedly ousted was because Paul wasn't a fan, so the Clips must sift through all the available options and find one that appeases their prized point man.

Where will that quest take Lob City?

Let's take a look.
