In terms of coaching movement, this could be one of the most volatile offseasons in league history. Five or six jobs are already open, depending on how you view interim coach Lindsey Hunter's status with the Phoenix Suns, and another five could open up over the next few weeks.

This prompted me to ask one of the league's top assistant coaches -- who should be in line for a head-coaching job over the next few years -- to rank the current job openings along with the potential openings from best to worst. This should give you some insight as to how people within the league, including guys who could be interviewing with these teams, view the openings and potential openings.
