A person familiar with the process said Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau is the leading candidate to fill the the New Orleans Hornets' coaching vacancy and that the team could offer him the job this week, according to multiple published reports.

After interviewing eight candidates, the Hornets began working on a contract for Thibodeau, the person said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the offer has not yet been made. Thibodeau is a candidate for the New Jersey Nets' opening, too.
