“I love him (Scott Skiles),” (Jeff) Van Gundy said. “Scott Skiles to me is one of the most underrated coaches in the NBA. People always talk about how he wears his teams out, but I’ve never believed that. Great players embrace coaching. When Scott was in Phoenix, he turned them around quickly. When he was in Chicago, he took over a team that had been down for a long, long period of time and he turned it and he turned it quickly.

“I think he’s a terrific teacher and I think his teams play, the way he played — tough and smart and with a sense of tenacity that really embodies who he is. If Scott wants to get back into coaching, he should be a guy that every team considers.”
