Melvin Hunt reportedly in the lead for Denver Nuggets' head coaching vacancy

According to multimedia outlet contributor Jared Zwerling, Melvin Hunt is the current frontrunner to land as new head coach of the Denver Nuggets. Via Zwerling’s Twitter account:

The Nuggets have been fairly laconic about their head coaching search since the regular season concluded over a month ago. With Scott Brooks denying the Nuggets an interview a little over a week ago and Mike D’Antoni having yet to meet with Nuggets’ brass in person, it appears the team’s ongoing quest to name a new head coach is moving at an even slower pace than originally suspected.

While patience is certainly one of the more desirable traits an organization can assume, there is also a fine line between calculated research and neglect. Taking time for time’s sake isn’t a strategy. Quite honestly, it’s a little bit confounding as to how the Nuggets are over a month into their head coaching search and still have yet to speak formally with one of their supposed favorite candidates in Mike D’Antoni.

The bright side of Zwerling’s tweet is of course the news regarding Melvin Hunt. As has been argued here at BSNDenver.com, Hunt is an ideal candidate for the current version of the Denver Nuggets, a team ostensibly at the crossroads of rebuilding, “retooling” and attempting to remain competitive in perhaps the toughest Western Conference in NBA history.

Stay tuned to BSN for more information on the Nuggets’ head coaching front until this process inevitably concludes by which time the continents will no longer be recognizable, Andromeda will have collided with the Milky Way and life as we know it will cease to exist.
