As the Portland Trail Blazers seek a new head coach, there is a "growing belief" that team governor Jody Allen has a "strong interest" in San Antonio Spurs assistant Becky Hammon, per Marc Stein of the New York Times

He added, however, that "Neil Olshey, Portland’s general manager, continues to be relentlessly linked to Chauncey Billups, the former NBA finals MVP working as an assistant alongside [Kenny] Atkinson with the Los Angeles Clippers."

Damian Lillard already made his preference (Jason Kidd) known and we saw how that went. Where he stands on the current candidates is TBD. Who's making the call might be more important than who gets hired as it relates to him, though. A lot still left to play out.
