From [The Athletic](https://theathletic.com/2140002/2020/10/15/nba-free-agency-news-and-rumors-anthony-davis-and-lakers-decisions-heat-contracts-and-more-goran-dragic-news/) (paywall), heres the relevant portion: >**New Orleans Pelicans** > >The Pelicans have four finalists for their head coaching job, including Stan Van Gundy and Ty Lue who are meeting in New Orleans with team officials this week and are seen as the expected choices to be offered the job. Two more finalists are expected to interview next week, sources said. Sources added Lakers assistant Jason Kidd is not part of the Pelicans’ process right now. Obviously this was published before Ty Lue signed with the Clippers. Shams is as plugged in as anyone, and based on this it looks like SVG is indeed the frontrunner.
