The GM who fired him and took over his job, is the same guy who got rid of Tyson Chandler, and made several other bone-headed moves.

A coach can only work with what a GM gives him. I site the way that Doc Rivers won the Coach of the Year Award in Orlando, then the GM in place did everything he could to ruin the franchise, and in less than two years (as is the case with Scott) ran the franchise into the ground. Rivers gets fired as a scapegoat, goes to Boston and wins a title.

Today, the former GM of the Magic who fired Rivers is working in the NHL and Rivers may get his second ring as a head coach in Boston where he has been given players who are a complement to his talent.

I have every confidence that somebody smart will hire Scott. I just hope that its a team that have players good enough to coach.

Not only that MarkL5 but he's bringing back Tim Floyd? A criminal who should be behind bars for "paying" to have both O.J. Mayo & DeMar Derozan come play for Southern Cal. And when his scheme was discovered he all of a sudden resigned. Leaving a university's basketball program in shambles and under threat of NCAA sanctions. Instead of facing the music he made like a big coward and quit. What a pathetic human being. Shame on you Hornets Nation!
