    League sources confirmed on Wednesday that the Pelicans are waiting to see if the Chicago Bulls and coach Tom Thibodeau are going to part ways. If Thibodeau is let go by the Bulls, he could possibly emerge as a candidate for the Pelicans' job.

    In June 2010, Thibodeau was a finalist for the then-named New Orleans Hornets head coaching job with Williams. But the franchise turned its attention to Williams after Thibodeau, who was a Boston Celtics assistant at the time, indicated he planned to pursue the vacant Bulls job, which he took.

    Although sources have not confirmed, potential candidates for the Pelicans' vacancy could include former Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks, former Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson, Warriors current lead assistant Alvin Gentry, Pacers assistant and former Trail Blazers head coach Nate McMillan, former Sacramento Kings and Pelicans assistant Mike Malone, Chicago Bulls assistant Adrian Griffin,University of Kentucky coach John Calipari, former New York Knicks and Houston Rockets Jeff Van Gundy.

    Contacted by telephone on Wednesday, Van Gundy declined to comment about the Pelicans' vacancy and whether he would be interested.

    ''I just don't want to comment anything about a coaching opening,'' Van Gundy said. ''It just makes me uncomfortable.''

    Maybe they should have just traded Monty to Chicago for Thibs, throwing in a second round pick as sweetener.
