NBA coaching sources have identified another prime candidate for the Utah Jazz opening: Hawks assistant Quin Snyder— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) April 23, 2014
Snyder is in his first year as an assistant in Atlanta under head coach Mike Budenholzer whom he worked with in San Antonio. Not coincidentally Utah GM Dennis Lindsey also worked in San Antonio and has been rumored to be interested in Euroleague legend Ettore Messina. Snyder spent a year in Messina's bench at CSKA Moscow.
Atlanta has assembled a talented young coaching staff and it's quite possible that this won't be the only time we hear one of them mentioned as being a candidate for another job. Snyder has the most recognizable name but fellow assistant Kenny Atkinson had his name come up in conjunction with the Philadelphia 76ers last offseason.
